To be honest with you, I was surprised that Smolin said anything truly,
novel, such as what I had quoted before. I do remember searching Lanl for
some work with the math of it, and such, but I don't remember if I obtained
any hits. Smolin, as you probably know, is one of the bigger, promoters, or
multiple universes, generated by Linde and Guth's Inflation process. I was
genuinely surprised that Smolin had any opinions on the human future, and so
considered his comments quote-worthy. He did not have any math to corroborate
hs comments, in the article. I assumed that he wouldn't have bothered
speaking of such an idea unless he had previously, given some thought. If he
does have anymore to say about it, I surely, would be interested.
