I would say it is difficult, not impossible, to conceive of, since there
are lots of things I haven't conceived of yet that are possible. Since (I
believe) it happened, clearly there must be some way of effecting it. To
write it off as a possibility because you or I cannot conceive of some
mechanism for effecting it (and at least I have some ideas that I am
currently testing) is premature and perhaps a little chauvanistic,
