On giving further consideration to possible ways of reinforcing whatever inclination Dr. Gribbin may have to give serious consideration to what we have to offer, I concluded that I should review one of his books that I read some time ago, to refresh my recollection as to his trend of thought. In so doing I ran across some comments that he made with respect to a speculative idea advanced by Paul Davies. These statements, copy of which is enclosed, open the door to some further application of a little pressure on Dr. Gribbin if your correspondence arrives at a point where this is appropriate.
My ideas about this are set forth in the enclosed letter. I have put them into this separate form, so that if it becomes possible to use them, you will have the option of either picking out the portions that you want to use and putting them in your own words, or alternatively, passing the buck to me, so to speak, and sending the whole letter.
It is possible that Davies, too, might be interested in what has been done with a modified form of one of his own ideas.
