I guess the issue then boils down to how to teach higher-kinded
polymorphism, that is, functions that are polymorphic over a type
*constructor*.  It is crucial for me that the functor's argument module
contain an abstract type *constructor*.

One can show you aren't immediately killed by tidal forces once crossing
over the event horizon of Black Hole. Mathematically, your space coordinates
become time-like and vice versa. This causes a shift in your light
cone and your world line can never intersect with someone on the outside.
