How many oceans?
The Indian Ocean is part of the so-called "World Ocean", with what can best be described as arbitrary borders, and yet it is treated as a distinct body of water in many ways. That could be what leads to the "no box...without a box inside" line, i.e., you can't have a smaller ocean without it being inside the bigger ocean. And looking at it from different angles ("all sides", "inside", "its side") doesn't really change anything. Thus: "This is our description of the Indian Ocean" (emphasis mine), but it's not meant to be definitive. The odd vocals and instrumentation lead one to believe that this is meant to be about a weirder topic than it actually is.
Curiously, later in the decade, They revisited the scientific community's idea of quantifying/listing things in "How Many Planets?", and again left the question unanswered, or at least open-ended. --MisterMe 13:23, 21 May 2012 (EDT)
