Understanding the madness which lies beyond is knowledge of the madness, which is bewildering. To ask these questions is like falling down the rabbit hole of Alice in Wonderland.
It seems unlikely, since the Buddha did not go loopy.
I think the standard interpretation that "conjecture leading to madness and vexation" is sufficient. In other words, it'll do your head in to try to work these things out... and either you won't be able to do it, or it would serve no productive purpose even if you could.
