Using Myers's novels as a mode of communication with children, we can begin to engage them in a dialogue that reassures regarding their self-worth, their power to create both real and imagined realities, and their ability to actualize the struggles they depict as the characters embark upon journeys toward maturity.
During training, A1 acquires (to some extent) the capacity to actualize perceptual responses (e.g., covertly seeing) and selection responses (e.g., pointing, pressing) to B1 and C1.
During successful symmetry testing, B1 and C1 will acquire the capacity to actualize the perceptual and selection functions of A1 through the relational frame of coordination.
When the subject looks at the comparisons, as before, these actualize the perceptual and selection responses that were at greatest strength at the end of the previous training session(s).
The important point here is that no matter which symmetry task is presented, when the subject looks at the comparison stimuli, each of those stimuli within a given class (e.g., B1 and C1) actualize perceptual and selection responses for only one stimulus, A1.
Using many-to-one training means that equivalence tests involve presenting samples and comparisons that have already acquired (through direct training) functions that actualize perceptual and selection responses to comparison stimuli.
Prior to creation, God sees Wp, sees that it is overall morally superior to Ws, notes that a certain set Sp of individual essences is instantiated in Wp (a set that does not include the individual essences of Satan and his cohorts), sees that to weakly actualize Wp he must create persons who are the instantiations of the members of Sp, and sees that to do that he must strongly actualize the largest state of affairs Tp in Wp that is compatible with creating those persons.
If He were to strongly actualize Tp, the instantiations of the members of Sp at Wp would freely behave in such a way that the resulting world--Wp, naturally enough--would be overall morally superior to Ws.
(3) O'Connor never explicitly asserts that at every world at which God exists, he can actualize Wp, but without it or something comparable--for example, at every world at which God exists, he can actualize an overall morally much better world than it--we can't affirm premise 2 below.
