Maldonado and Quantum Psychology

The other day, working on a newspaper story, I interviewed a lady whose last name is Maldonado. Her name made me smile, but I didn't say why and didn't ask if anyone in her family happened to be named "Banana Nose."

On another note: A few weeks ago, I purchased a copy of Quantum  Psychology. I notice that the book has exercises that are supposed to be done in a group. I don't have a group to join, and I suppose I should just go ahead and read the book, but does anyone have any thoughts?

I highly recommend forming a group and doing the exercises with them. I found this a great experience. I've had two groups that did the whole book. We could even start an online group to attempt this. Bob used this book for an MLA class which I, alas, did not take.

Count me in. As I'm in NYC, this would have to be online.

Sounds great. We could start right after my Schroedinger's Cat class, or we could begin sooner. We could use either alt.fan.rawilson or the Maybe Logic Academy as a location, or we could stay here at the wonderful Raw Illumination. Or perhaps www.cia.gov?

I could host it here. Eric, since you are a "Maybe Logic" professor who has actually done a group, how much time is reasonable between chapters?

I found Robert Anton Wilson's approach in quatum psychology much more in touch with my tastes because of its philosophical edge, though Prometheus Rising is a little more thorough.

Pastor Maldonado won a F1 Grand Prix this year.

There was a baseball player named Candy Maldonado who wore #23.

On page 10 of Quantum Psychology Bob says, "Ideally, the book should serve as a study manual for a group which meets once a week to perform the exercises and discuss the daily-life implications of the lessons learned."

We will have to adapt it to an online format, but a chapter a week for 23 weeks seems like a good format.

Will this study group begin with the introduction or chapter 1 ?

there is a LOT of information in the introduction. I feel it's worth going over.

I like Tom's idea of starting with chapter one next Monday (Rosemary's Baby's birthday, which goes along with the terrific horror film piece unearthed by Dr. Gathers and linked to by Tom today).

It does seem like a great idea to go over the intro too. I finished rereading the intro and chapter one yesterday. I look forward to this group.
