It's a type in Haskell that can be cast to/from any other type. Useful e.g. when implementing an open sum.

I still have no idea what you are talking about. Afaik there are no Any types in the Haskell standard or in base, so you will have to link to it.

If you mean the Any type that you can define as an existential, like Dynamic, there's nothing unsafe about it.
