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.
