Dear Dr. Nirenberg:
As I was about to mail the enclosed material to Dr. Robert B. Livingston, the thought came that this philosophy might also hold some interest for you, since it seems to bring together much vital frontier work into a unification with nature.
I will be honored if you, too, will read the article A PHILOSOPHY FOR SURVIVAL. If it helps in any small way to provide a philosophical base for your research I will be most happy that I sent it to you.
Thank you for any interest this may arouse.
Sincerely,
V. R. Damerell
P.S. The basic theory in the enclosed article suggests that the human energy state, or more specifically the cell energy state, should play a role in the incidence and prevention of cancer. I am sure the NIH has gone into this. VRD
