This is the second of the weekly get-togethers to discuss chapters in Robert Anton Wilson's Quantum Psychology and to attempt to do the exercizes (as well as they can be done, in cyberspace, as opposed to actually getting together in a physical space.)
Exercize 1. Let each member of the group classify each of the following propositions as meaningful or meaningless:
A. I hauled the garbage out this morning.
B. God appeared to me this morning.
C. I saw a UFO this morning.
D. This table-top measures two feet by four feet.
E. Space becomes curved in the vicinity of heavy masses, such as stars.
F. Space does not become curved at all; light simply bends in the vicinity of heavy masses, such as stars.
G. Defendants are innocent until the jury pronounces them guilty.
H. The umpire's decision is binding.
I. "History is the march of God through the world." (Hegel).
J. In the act of conception, the male and the female each contribute 23 chromosomes.
K. The devil made me do it.
L. My unconscious made me do it.
M. Conditioned reflexes made me do it.
N. A church is the house of God.
O. Anybody who criticizes the government is a traitor.
P. Abraham Lincoln served as president between 1960 and 1968.
2. Where disagreements arise, attempt to avoid conflict (quarrel) and seek to understand why disagreements must arise in judging some of these propositions.
Please post your answers in the comments. We'll start on No. 1 first.
