Hi Norman,

Thanks for the kudos. I have to agree with you that
Tegmark is not very convincing in his move to center his
multiverse construction on inflation. Even if inflation has
to be a quantum process I don't see the advantage
of pinning it to a ManyWorld scenario since it is unlikely
there were any observers there to split universes (;-).

But he is fun to read and the pictures are always great!

  Hi Godfrey,
    Thanks for the ID. Now I know that "Godfrey" is one of the
mind-stretchers on this list.
    I hope that Saibal will eventually tell us the reason(s) for
"Dishonorable Mention."
     I read Tegmark's paper too, where he seems to attribute the
beginning of
"It" to Inflation. But he didn't appear to address how, or why,
got started. I guess his definition of "It" ends with our Big Bang.
    Thinking of Big Bangs, or anything else, as a logical process that
occurs without causality isn't something I'm able to do. But I'll keep

Hi Saibal, Norman

 I did not mean to intervene but so that my name is not
 "called in vain" (:-) I would like to mention that, yes, I read
 Tegmark's paper and enjoyed it much though I could not
 help but notice that, though he promises, he never gets
 to Level IV (my favorite) on this paper, to my regret.

 I don't think that was the reason for the dishonorable mention,
 though! I surely wasn't heard about it..

 As to whom am I? Still trying to find out...

This is a teaser. Why did Tegmark's paper receive Dishonorable Mention?
is Godfrey?

Tegmark's essay was not well received (perhaps Godfrey didn't like it?
 :-) )
