Footnotes

  • Note:
    According to James Elliot in The Perfect Thought, Byars was "accepted as the 'Artist of the Hudson Institute' in upstate New York, where he works with Herman Kahn and attempts: 1. the exaltation of being in the proximity of extraordinary people; 2. the one hundred most interesting questions in America at the time; 3. the next step after E=mc2; and 4. one thousand superlatives about the Hudson Institute. Byars conceives of the World Question Center." (p.93)
