Even though This be neither creature, thing. non creature, nor non thing, it yet certainly is some thing, or we would not be here doing what we do.

There was once a king who had a foe, with whom, each day, he did battle.

Year after year did this inconclusive face off transpire, ‘til one day the king suddenly realized the problem: he had been calling his opponent by the wrong name.
