Dear Dr. Engelbart…

Thank you for your writings on “augmenting the human intellect.”  I think.  Actually, no…  Wait…   Uggh.  Perhaps I could use a P/H/C/LAM-T to help me understand your article.  Or perhaps a more helpful method of augmenting my intellect would be for you to have found a way to simplify the stimulus.  There may have been absolutely amazing stuff in your paper, but I couldn’t even read the whole thing.  I hope that someone else’s intellect is more capable than mine, and through some primitive and low-level direct communication can explain to me some ways in which I may gain understanding and find it useful.

Sincerely,

Me
