Though Omar uses the expression "logical contradiction" to apply to the first 
form, it is unclear to me that any of the three involve any kind of logical 
contradiction in the way, for example, 'a' and 'non-a'logically contradict - 
that is, they cannot both be true. But it can be true that I deviate in my 
action from my own maxims etc.

Hope I'm not contradicting myself
