I think he's talking about Hawking changing his mind as to whether information can escape from black holes. Hawking always said radiation can escape, but believed all information was destroyed. He changed his mind about that. The above quote is pure bovine excrement. Baldev probably got his doctorate in farming technology. Jonathan Colvin
