LADISLAV HEJDÁNEK ARCHIVES | Cardfile
Here you will find a digitized image of Hejdánek's original filing cabinet. Its total volume is many thousand tickets. We publish them in parts as we handle them. At the moment we have worked out what prof. Hejdánek himself developed electronically. However, much work remains on paper cards. In addition to Hejdánek's extracts from reading, the filing cabinet also includes his own thought work from recent years, which cannot be found elsewhere.

At first glance at least, life seems to be an utterly unimportant by-product; we living things are somehow off the main line.
We do not know whether suitable physical conditions are sufficient in themselves to produce life. ...
