New term: chasmic impedence mismatch

I've contrived a new term than can be used in both technical and non-technical contexts: which means that you're trying to match up some entities, but there simply isn't a clean match, at all, but you still feel that somehow, a match should be possible, or at least desirable.  In fact the entities really are on wildly different wavelengths and unlikely to be able to communicate effectively unless some outside entity or force intervenes.
