Well, think of it this way: What is a type? What do we mean when we declare the type of a variable?

We're declaring how we want the compiler to treat the data value. It's not an existential property of the variable, it's the way that we interpret the value.

So:
C++
char* b = "ABCD"; // means treat b as a char pointer
And:
C++
int* a = (int*)b; // means please treat b as a int pointer just this one time
We're declaring an action, not a property of the variable.
The difficult we do right away...
...the impossible takes slightly longer.
