Dear Dan,

maybe some criticism will help you in your work on Lila's Child.
So,... here I go

I read LC in the beginning of this year, on a three months holiday through
Asia. Quite difficult to get into... but, well you can't look at sunsets

When I first read LC was being published I was quite surprised.
Allthough the content is very interesting, I think the form in which it is
written down isn't. In my opinion, although you've done a great job, it's
not quite ready for printing.

Even Jimi Hendrix would not be able to explain E=MC2 well and also make it
artistically Dynamic. Different kind of qualities, you know.

I think the big thing is not to present it as the third book on MOQ, but as
a backup of the other two. An effort in understanding the MOQ.
I surely would get rid of this email-form.
Get rid of all the names, (make notes for yourself so you can give credit to

I hope this all helps,
