Yes I agree, thanks for the thought, language has
always been a problem within communication.
I would ask the alien; "as i've observed the rock for
at least 10 years, the rock hasn't changed". At the
same time I understand that "the rock" has came in
contact with many of species, is the rock different or
has the rock changed "the specie".
Is this what you where getting at?
