If this is a genuine question, of course you have an experience. My
statement never suggested otherwise.

I agree, for example, that a poem is not (usually) a coded message,
although some have been used for that (consider the code of "Follow the
Drinking Gourd"), but it is also not ANY experience at all.
======= Okay. I know
I'm asking for yet another put down, but I will bite anyway. I could
swear, when I read the poem, that I have an experience. Am I deluded?
