The graphs for consistent and inconsistent states are backwards, right?

Hi @Andres_Parra

Can you please clarify the term “backwards”?

I would better be able to answer your query if you clarify this term.

Yes. I mean the illustrations regarding consistent and inconsistent state. In the INCONSISTENT state description it says “Process i will have a message (m1_11​) and Process j will have no record of message sending.” I’m not sure but I believe that’s what showing the CONSISTENT state illustration.
Thanks.
