Even after understanding that contents of objectboxes are just messages, 
it doesn't necessarily make much more sense, as you could have had 
completely different messageboxes in pd while still considering contents 
of objectboxes to be just messages. But it does make a lot more sense if 
we don't think about how else it could have been and instead just accept 
it as it is... (which may include working around it and not using 
messageboxes anymore).
