Quantum Psychology, Chapter 17

[The first exercize does not seem doable in an online discussion, but here is the second and third. -- The Mgt.]

2. Rewrite the following sentences in E-Prime:

A. Dr. Reich was a quack.
B. Sister Kenny was a quack.
C. "Everybody is a bit queer except me and thee, and sometimes I wonder about thee."
D. Cancer is caused by worry and depression.
E. Cancer is caused by a virus.
F. The cause of schizophrenia is sexual repression.
G. Schizophrenia is caused by genetic predisposition.
H. She is a Catholic, so therefore she is against abortion.
I. "Evolution is no longer a theory. It is a proven fact." (Variations on this came forth from several biologists during recent controversies with Bible Fundamentalists.)
J. "The whole New Age is Satanic." (Rev. Pat Robertson.)
K. "Reality is whatever you think it is."
L. "Nothing is. Nothing becomes. Nothing is not." (Aleister Crowley, Book of Lies (falsely so called).
M. "Bob is. Bob becomes. Bob is not. Therefore, Bob is nothing." (Ivan Stang, Book of the Sub-Genius.)

3. Re-write the following questions in E-Prime.

A. Are all diseases psychosomatic?
B. Are some UFOs really alien spaceships?
C. What is Justice?
D. What is Art?
E. What is the cause of poverty?
F. What is the cause of war?
G. Why are there so many homeless people in this rich country?
H. "It's pretty,  but is it Art?" (Kipling.)

A. Dr. Reich seems like a quack to me.
B. Sister Kenny seemed like a quakc to me.

H. Abortion goes against Catholic doctrine.
I. "I think evolution has a factual basis.:
J. "The whole New Age seems Satanic to me."
K "You make your own reality."
L. "Nothing exists. Nothing becomes. Nothing equals nothing."
M. "Bob lives. Bob does. What Bob?"


A. Do all diseases have a psychosomatic cause?
B. Do you think alien spaceships have visited Earth but remain unidentified?
C. Can you define Justice?
D. Can you define Art?
E. What do you think causes poverty?
F. What do you think causes war?
G. Why do so many people live in this rich country?
H. "It seems pretty but does it seem like Art?"

Great job! (Or "it seems like a great job to me!")

phodecidus said...

After 6+ years of writing in E-Prime, these exercises come easily to me. I've recently devoted more time and attention to speaking in E-Prime and as you may expect, I lapse into using 'is' with more frequency.

Using E-Prime in daily speech really does change the inner dialogue of the mind and has a profound effect on the world view and I recommend it to every QP participant. We adjust the way we speak to please our employers, neighbors, etc. so why not adjust your speech for you own pleasure and experimental spirit? I find it much funner than asking, "Do you want fries with that?"

Thom Foolery said...

Do these sentence work as examples of E-Prime? I'm still trying to wrap my brain around E-Prime, or vice-versa.

A. Some scientists did not trust Dr. Reich.

B. Many in the medical establishment considered Sister Kenny a quack.

C. "Everybody seems a bit queer except me and thee, and sometimes I wonder about thee."

D. Often cancer arises from worry and depression.

E. Some cancers seem caused by a virus.

F. Many experts used to see sexual repression as the cause of schizophrenia.

G. Some scientists see genetic predisposition as the cause of schizophrenia.

H. She completely accepts official Catholic dogma, and so she rejects abortion.

I. Evolution has survived more than a century of challenges and so seems more proven fact that theory.

J. The New Age movement does not mesh with Pat Robertson's brand of Christianity.

K. "Reality seems observer dependent."

L. "I don't want to translate Crowley's quote into E-Prime."

M. "I don't want to translate Stang's quote into E-Prime either."

Thom Foolery said...

And now for the questions...

A. Are all diseases psychosomatic? (no version of "to be" in this sentence, so no E-Prime translation needed, right? I would adjust the "all" to "sombunall," but that's a slightly different focus, isn't it?)

B. Are some UFOs really alien spaceships? (same comment as A above)

C. What seems just to me?

D. What do I consider art?

E. How does poverty arise?

F. Why does war happen?

G. Why do many homeless people live in country that seems materially prosperous?

H. "I find it pretty, but does it constitute art?"

Eric Wagner said...

"Are" seems a form of the verb "to be."

Eric Wagner said...

Phodecidus, Bob article on General Semantics which Tom just posted echoes your notions about how General Semantics and E-Prime has a greater effect over time.
