Isn't that what life on earth is?

Sometimes it feels pointless to even hypothesize about things like that
because there is no upper limit on the possible utter and never-ending
foreignness to humans of things that possibly exist, which means that most
of existence is incomprehensible?

So I might say that it's just as likely that a tenalp exists where efil is
sustained by ygrene.

That to me begs the question--is consciousness consciousness
consciousness?  By which I mean, is all experience experience?  Are there
any constants?

I'd like to think so; it's nicer than everything being incomprehensible.
