Why have I spent an ungodly number of hours watching Mandelbrot plots
render, tweaking the scale and XY coordinates, iteration depth,
coloring rules, etc?  Can a mandelbug imagine a thing made of meat
examining it like a stained specimen on a microscope slide, or why it
would want to do that?

Same question IMO.

Years ago I was a compulsive meditator.  One time I got all the way
outside the Universe and the first thing I noticed was a dingy brass
plaque riveted to the bottom of it that said "For Amusement Purposes
Only."

Some old Taoist sage or other supposedly dreamed that he was a
butterfly.  Then a butterfly dreamed that he was some old Taoist sage
or other.  Some hundreds of years later a melancholic drug addict
asked, "Is all that we see or seem but a dream within a dream?"

Then some propagandists made a music video about a music video about a
dream within a dream:
