Transcript for Feynman's Messenger Lecture Series

In summary, the speaker is looking for a transcript of R Feynman's Messenger Lecture at Cornell 1964 on "The Relation of Mathematics and Physics". They are aware of a video version on Project Tuva, but would prefer a written transcript. Another person suggests the book "The Character of Physical Law" which contains all seven lectures and is available on Amazon for less than $12. The speaker also mentions that on the Project Tuva site, there is a running transcript below the video which can be expanded by clicking on arrows.

Hi, could someone please tell me where I might find a full transcript of R Feynman's Messenger Lecture at Cornell 1964 on "The Relation of Mathematics and Physics"? I know that it is available in video format on Project Tuva, but a transcript (not running alongside the video) would be very helpful. Thanks.

"The Character of Physical Law" MIT Press, ISBN 9780262560030. Available at amazon for less than 12 dollars. Appears to be a faithful record (I'm not sure what you mean by 'transcript'). This book has all seven lectures.

Thanks for the link to the Project Tuva site, I didn't know about that.

On the YouTube versions, did you try the [beta] CC-options?

On the Project Tuva site, there is a running transcript below the video (if the video is not in full-screen).
If you click on one of the arrows, you can see the whole transcript.
