Almost-Inconceivable

Every once in a while we let our minds wander toward the inconceivable, but they don't go all the way. We stop short of actually thinking about the inconceivable, and instead find ourselves pondering the almost-inconceivable.

The two following categories would NOT include the almost-inconceivable:

A. The Known: That which exists, has existed, or is known to be possible.

B. The Inconceivable: The unknown unknown. That about which we don't even know that we don't know, and can't possibly imagine.


Types/Categories:

1. Known-unknown: Stuff we know we don't know, but what we know is theoretically possible to know, or that we may know in the future.

2. Only Imaginable: Stuff that is beyond atypical or unusual, and more properly would be considered to be suppositious, or fanciful, or extremely curious.
