Tower of Babel book


by Richard W Wetherill

Today our world unknowingly suffers from warped and twisted thinking caused by what Wetherill called distortions of logic. Those distortions are unconscious-level fixed, inflexible tools of thought, causing all of our mistakes. This book exposes the exact nature of those distortions. It shows their causes, their results, and their remedies.


Clearly our world is in trouble. With all our graft and corruption, our selfishness and cupidity, our lusts and overindulgences, our endless killings on highways and in battle, our dissensions and conflicts, our innumerable other examples of foolishness and the difficulties which result, we can hardly call ourselves collectively stable and sane.

Despite our spectacular material and industrial progress, we are lost in confusion. Our leaders advance from crisis to crisis in a world seemingly built of crises. Over all our tribulation hangs the ominous threat of the atom bomb—and worse.

Somehow we have let ourselves get out of adjustment.

Everyone knows that our human and social sciences have lagged far behind the advances of our physical sciences. Seemingly we know more about atoms than about ourselves. Our physical sciences gave us the atom bomb, and the atom bomb is unbelievably dangerous. But the only reason we had to develop the atom bomb, and the only reason it is dangerous, is that we have not successfully applied objective intelligence to the problem of getting along with and among ourselves.

What is the result?
