I didn't say that <AND> is the logical conjunction of predicates. I said that the predicate of the result of <AND> is the logical conjunction of the predicates of its operands. If you still doubt that that is what D&D intended, then I suggest that you revisit the sections "Dispensing with TIMES" and "Dispensing with UNION" on pages 362-363.
