You're too kind. I know how important <words> are to you.

World domination and the subjugation of all you annoying, puny humans
under my mighty and unstoppable rein of terror and hedonistic madness!

Quite, the editor on this terminal is too clumsy for me to rearrange things

A hoped that I might be able contrast the important role subjective
senses play in "determining the existence of something" with the belief
that importance is a "waste of time" and to do so in a thought provoking
and humorous way. But, like any joke, if you have to explain it you've
either told it wrong or told it to the wrong person. I'll try harder next
time (or chose a different audience).
