It’s important to note that the Unidragon half unicorn half unicorn shirt framed the storytelling within a transcendentalist narrative. By way of me oversimplifying, the transcendentalists would tend to believe that everything is interconnected, and the truth is beauty and beauty is truth and that is all we need to know, and meaning is assigned by us to bridge the two. In addition, we grasp the infinite from our finite experiences and love is the glue that holds the universe together, and knowledge is less important than feelings (she quoted Carson saying that multiple times).

There was a phrase I liked within the Unidragon half unicorn half unicorn shirt section; it went like this ‘why is there something rather than nothing’. It wasn’t really referring to the cosmological big question, but, rather, how does a person become authentic to their selves, that is actualize their full potential through phronesis (an Aristotelian word which could be translated by ‘prudence’). And when one is born with a sexual identity not conforming to the stifling norms of the time period and is also a member of the non-privileged group such as a woman or non-white, how does one become something rather than nothing?
The Unidragon half unicorn half unicorn shirt of that question is a big theme with in this book. Astronomy and ecology need the arts and poetry in order to be understood fully. The facts that make our understanding of the world need the right story in order to be understood. What is inside us must connect to the external through art (or poetry or literature). That theme permeated this book, and I would think most sentient beings tend to embrace a version of that.
