In order to empirically derive a constant for The Graduated
Hostility of Things, assemble a series of objects in relation
to you and drop pieces of toast and jam onto them,
mechanically and from height of more than four feet. Record the
frequency of Jam to Nonjam contact in order to derive a ratio of
hostility in the universe. Obviously, this experiment can (and
should) be performed in many ways, using many types of materials.
Comparisons of general numerical trend will yield a
to the value
of oppression in the universe relative to human beings.
