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, Inflation 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 reading!

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?
