"That is the beauty of the Seventh World: it is unknown. It is something that could only be reconstructed from the vague, contradictory and implicit claims of the forum posts. It’s like being an alien reading a single Internet forum of ours: they could reconstruct something but most posts would be too implicit, referring to things they can’t have knowledge of, or too alien, to make sense. /r/seventhworldproblems is not a world building exercise, it is an artefact that asks us to be interpreted as describing a world.
As such, /r/seventhworldproblems is a unique work of collective art. It is the Internet forum version of Arthur C. Clarke’s Rama from Rendezvous with Rama, or of Luigi Serafini’s Codex Seraphinianus: an interpretation device that yields no coherent interpretation.”"
