Hi Harv,

As you know, I am a staunch advocate for Dick and his work. As you also know, I spent nine months of fairly intense (albeit intermittent) work trying to understand and verify Dick's paper with my limited knowledge of math and physics. I got nearly to the end of chapter one before I got hopelessly in over my head. In the process, I feel good about uncovering a couple of typographic errors in the equations, in particular, I discovered the error in Dick's use of the Dirac Delta function some months before Alex spotted the same error in his cursory reading.

At this point, I am satisfied that Dick's work is not only correct, but profound. I regret that I am not in a position to certify that position with stronger credentials.

I also regret that someone with sufficient credentials has not been interested, so far, in reviewing the work. In this regard, I sincerely appreciate the appeal you made in your post. I hope it snags at least one qualified individual.

Warm regards,
