2 a : a constantly shifting complex succession of things seen or imagined b : a scene that constantly changes
3 : a bizarre or fantastic combination, collection, or assemblage

It's also a really cool poem about a ghost, by Lewis Carroll (author of Alice in Wonderland and Alice Through the Looking Glass).
