- ``I am most pleased and deeply honored to accept your kind invitation
to participate in your First World Futures-Creating Seminar,
and yes, I will start very soon to gather thoughts in preparation
for a lecture along the lines you suggest for presentation by
Professor Voneida. \ldots Also, should there be anything further
I might do -- (in a background role) -- that might be of any help
in your laudable effort, please do not hesitate to let me know.
With thanks and appreciation, and continuing best wishes for your
most important project. -- From Dr. Sperry's faxed letter of
April 26, 1993, to Kaoru Yamaguchi.''
