what is we find celestial beings and won't understand their consciousness. we seek to find something other than us, but what if it's so different from us that we won't recognise it if we do find it.

the Solaris planet's ocean does things on its own, experiments on people, puts ideas and things / entities in their minds. is it the conscious being? is it something we want to be conscious the way we are? can something that is not breathing, talking, moving, etc, be one?
