Yes, I am pretty confident in precursors. The letter doesn't mention 
I.J. Good's intelligence explosion 1965, or even Alan Turing's somewhat 
similar idea in 1951 (since they worked together at Bletchley park, 
maybe they chatted about it there?).

Lewis Carrol has an organic simulation claim in Beyond the Looking Glass.
