The Thread that Came Back from the Dead?

I think it is amusing how many people dismissed Bonner's book (typically with rude non-arguments of the "blah blah blah" variety) when it was published in 2006. Of course, even a stopped clock is right twice a day ... but it is difficult not to look back now and suggest that he was rather prescient.
