The current quality and availability of self-diagnostics for the human
systems is inadequate to produce sufficiently rigorous results.

All objective existence is a deific jest; attempts to project human
desires for orderliness and consistency, truth and knowledge on it are
even funnier.

Voyagers on the seas of knowledge and truth should beware untidy rocks of
deific hiliarity.

It may be a wry jest, intended to express personal frustration. It may
have the significance of a laundry list. Unfortunately, the originator is
no longer here to answer the question, although parts of his brain are
reputedly in a jar somewhere. I don't have the number of the jar,
