Two of the first people Alice meets are Tweedledee and Tweedledum
One of Alice's early encounters in the underground is with an odd couple of brothers tied together somehow at the brain. They do everything together. They even finish each other's sentences. Something weird about these two deep staters! One has a satellite receiver installed on the back of his brain. The other dangles a little pink wire from one ear. It sends and receives bits of stuff through the satellite receiver mounted on the head of his sibling.
"Tweedle" is a code word in Deep State Speak. It is made up of "Twee" and "dle." It is a type of last name. The first names of the two boys are "dee" and "dum." The last is first and the first is last.
