Varelse is one of Demosthenes' branches on the Hierarchy of Foreignness. A varelse is "the true alien, which includes all of the animals, for with them no conversation is possible. They live, but we cannot guess what purpose or causes make them act. They might be intelligent, they might be self-aware, but we cannot know it."

Varelse means "being" in swedish.
