This article recalls three papers published by Fred Hoyle and Jayant V. Narlikar consecutively in 1966 in Proceedings of the Royal Society, London. These papers were largely overlooked at the time but a look back today more than fifty years later shows how relevant they might be even today. Fred Hoyle, one of the most imaginative astrophysicists of the twentieth century, gives examples of how his mind functioned running far ahead of the conventional views of the time.
