The artist is distinguished from all other responsible actors in society — the politicians, legislators, educators, and scientists—by the fact that he is his own test tube, his own laboratory, working according to very rigorous rules, however unstated these may be, and cannot allow any consideration to supersede his responsibility to reveal all that he can possibly discover concerning the mystery of the human being.1

That is, if said yellow submarine is considered analogous or archetypical of a holographic (Susskind) simulation (Bostrom).
