Here are the changes that need to be made in the conference lecture to translate it from speech to print. Also the article that, I suggest you offer to the editor of Frontiers of Science. Both feature the scalar motion theme, because this is what we will be emphasizing for the next year or so.
As I said in my previous letter, I believe that this kind of a follow-up of the previous article is appropriate from the standpoint of the magazine itself, as the publicity that we will be giving to the subject matter by means of our promotional efforts will tend to highlight the article; that is, there will be numerous references, spoken and written, to “the article in Frontiers of Science.”
I am not sending a list of references with the article, as I do not believe that identifying the references serves any useful purpose in the kind of an article that is suitable for a scientific publication of a general nature. The Scientific American, for instance, does not cite references. However, if the editor wants them, I will supply them.
If the decision is to publish the article, we will want to put in an ad for the new book. For this purpose it will be necessary to know what issue the article will appear in, as the content of the ad will depend to some extent on whether it appears before or after the publication date of the book. When this information is available, our people here will supply the copy for the ad.
I hope you have recovered from your ailments by this time, and are feeling as good as new.
