I take it that there is a translation problem here, but there's more than that. I couldn't make sense of this thing at all. I had the impression that I was reading a partial manuscript; that a lot of the text was missing; maybe every second paragraph, maybe more than that.

Perhaps the author thought that the audience would read between the lines and deduce what wasn't written. Maybe there's some kind of cultural thing going on, like jokes told in a foreign language. Everything seemed disconnected, though, and I didn't get it.
I was raised by humans. What's your excuse?
