IAN: That's almost as goofy as people who claim
that A is A free from not-A; of course, in the
fused-horn-goat case, there was at least a
single example of their case (fake as it
may have been), yet the atomists have
neither a real nor a fake unicorn.

No, my mistake, the atomists have come up
with several fake cases, like Anton's cat
that was a cat free from the black void
around it defining it as a cat, bOiNg!
Wow, now that was one phoney unicorn!
