Quote, Stephen Hawking

 

"theory of everything"

 

"This complete set of laws can give us the answers to questions like how did the universe begin," he said. "Where is it going and will it have an end? If so, how will it end? If we find the answers to these questions, we really shall know the mind of God."

 

Perhaps now he can ask the questions directly.

 

R.I.P.

“A man travels the world in search of what he needs and returns home to find it."

It has been said that time heals all wounds. I don't agree. The wounds remain. Time - the mind, protecting its sanity - covers them with some scar tissue and the pain lessens, but it is never gone. Rose Kennedy

Hi, some years ago we set up a live internet connection to present an interactive feed between London and Sydney, it was on the main stage of the Sydney Opera House, (innovative, it had not been done before).

 

In London was Steven Hawkins, in Sydney there were two Astrophysicist's and Steven Hawkins Daughter. Hawkins addressed the audience via a large screen and live Audio link (which we had trouble with).

 

The audience were able to directly question Hawkins who from his end could see all. I was amazed by his wit, his depth of knowledge, and his plain belief that we are not being determined by a higher being, rather the universe itself determines us. 

 

I took my daughter (who considered herself a genius) after this, I don't think she was so sure anymore, remarkable Man, wonderful Human being, and a great loss not only to science, but to the whole World.

Died at 76 and the world will truly miss him. Hawking was one of kind, a brilliant mind that only graces us once every several generations.

Stephen Hawking passes away on March 14, 2018 which is Albert Einstein's birthday March 14, 1879 kind of appropriate.

RIP, he is a great physicist.

 

Too bad he can't get Nobel Prize.
