So mellifluous 'twas wordsmithed by dwarves in Aasgard for sure and not the Marvel Comix sort

For 30 years there has been a nascent but un-comprehending comprehensibility of something akin and akimbo to Hyperobjects in American letters as "the airborne toxic event" (in H terms 'ungalublischelueftische-giftischese-ereignis'?) but the ability of the hyperobjects concept to expand thinking and comprehension, to world the unworldy, and allow us to exist inside a hyperobject or multiple ones is so much more

We like Van der Meer's (by the water in nomen est omen nomenclature) and TM but I also invoke a bit of parody:
