Writing a paper

I particularly like these lines, where I am commenting on the Bloom baby experiment: 
It is possible that babies recognize the sequence of a chest being closed – in fact that is one of the premises of the research. To the baby, the frustrated bunny is involved in a “Contrast” that is “Resolved” when the brown teddy bear helps him. In the second episode the white bunny is associated with the “Contrast” being not “Resolved” and perhaps this makes the baby uncomfortable. By this interpretation, pre verbal babies already have the narrative preference. They like one story more than the other.

So it would be like showing a puppet show to a New York commuter involving cars and red lights turning green; and determing later whether the driver who did or didn’t go when he had chance was a bad guy.
