Peggy Study, Panel P080

Themes: Language Development, Object Exploration
Source: (Lawler); date: 8/5/1979

Text commentary: These clips show the relevance of touch in confirming personal permanence through an opaque object (Pane C1) and then, of sight of one’s self in comprehending penetration of an object with a hole (Pane C3). This is relevant to the importance of the “hand-pass” as proposed by Minsky in his suggestion of how one learns what an arch is.
The “Wooden Nickels” of Pane D were introduced in response to Peggy’s throwing balls to cause rolling: these little “cylinder chunks” sometimes roll when thrown, but not always — an incremental complication of her set of objects.
