A page that produces different states can be a complete web application 
that would contain ALL the "pages" of the application within a single 
URI. For such applications you cannot test every screen nor every 
functionality, in the same manner that you cannot test every page in a 
website. Other example could be a game, where you cannot test every 
level, or pages that dynamically show information based on user input 
(for example, IA assitants that show information related to the user's 
query, like the IKEA one, if I remember well).

Regards,
Ramón.
