    You know, the usual variant of the Pink Unicorn is the Invisible Pink Unicorn, so '???' is perhaps the best equation.

    Of course, neither Joe nor I are exclusively internalist or externalist, we just rock our respective boats in different yaws.

    I find the identifiability of behavior-only memes to be their chief delight, and the total non-identifiability of internal memes to be their primary sourness. Joe thinks they can and will be found. So, yeah, I think he kind of wants to play with the unicorns, but I don't think he is a virgin, so they won't talk to him.

    Pink unicorns, visible or invisible, while dramatically allowable, are not within nature to pursue.
