“The most difficult subjects can be explained to the most slow-witted man if he has not formed any idea of them already; but the simplest thing cannot be made clear to the most intelligent man if he is firmly persuaded that he knows already, without a shadow of a doubt, what is laid before him.” — Leo Tolstoy, The Kingdom of God is Within You
(1894).

One could reason that He was not of any world, except the imagination.

Then of you're oppressed by a virus, you're an alien? I don't think that idea is going anywhere.
