You can kid yourself, maybe, but I have found another old reference, this time in "The Greatest Show on Earth", chapter 11, "History written all over us", p354:
"But now, suppose I tell you that the eye's 'photocells' are pointing backwards, away rom the scene being looked at. The wires connecting the photocells to the brain run all over the surface of the retina... That doesn't make sense...". (My bold) His problem might be that Nikon don't make self-maintaining CCD arrays, so his technical advice was bad from the start. (He quoted his Nikon friend at some point, on camera design.)
