This seems far from obvious.    (03)

First, what is meant by 'description'?  A written, spoken sentence, a 
thought, a collection of propositions?  If there is such a description, 
is the description a part of the universe, and as such, is it a 
description of the entire universe -- thus including the description 
itself?  If it is not, what does 'entire' mean?    (04)

Second, what is meant by 'be'?  In what sense such a description *must be*?    (05)
