He doesn't just *hint*, it's the corner-stone of his demonstration, using
the flashlight beam example, of the ubiquity and explanatory necessity of
impacts from adjacent worlds. In my ignorance I couldn't see any passage
that spelled out how this worked (apart from vague poetic references to
interference-fringe-creating`shadow light'), but presumably it's to be
found in his formal papers.
