Hi Mitch,

Great comments! I would only wonder why the BB concept is not seen, by 
Susskind et al, as equivalent to the Observer Moment (or Barborian Time 
Capsule) concept. My question is how do they justify the 'memory of a past 
state' of a BB; or do they ignore this? Additionally, it seems that we can 
easily stretch the BB idea into a "Last Thursdayism" concept.
