[Provides the proper lattice realization of Orlov’s “doubt states.” Explains how quantum logic models, such as Orlov’s “wave logic” and Oshins’ “quantum psychology,” differ from Zadeh’s “fuzzy logic” and suggests how they provide a more general underlying structure for internal mental representations than the Shepard and Chipman theory of “second-order isomorphisms.” (pp. 16-20)]
