I think it makes a lot of sense. Some people are just slower at seeing at the moment; the current story doesn't reveal that much either.
I have no idea how no one even points out an 'ethereal plane spider' down in the 'Whispering depths'.
Normally, creatures on the Ethereal Plane cannot attack creatures on the Material Plane, and vice versa.
We are all under some sort of illusion, or worse...
