From Project Mailer

I have to explore the idea of what it means to different people to go to Heaven and Hell. Probably one of the really good projective tests would be to have people outline for you what they believed Heaven was like, and what Hell was like. And I suspect that underneath the surface construction, once you could draw them out, would be projected a great deal of H-desire masquerading as S and vice versa. This is one of those common-places which ought to be explored more. The trouble with most projective techniques is that they work better for people on the college-to-expert express than they do for weird-os. Most projective techniques are quite inept I believe when it comes to doing more than recognizing that a particular person is very unusual.
