I don't know if this is a Mandela affect (If it exists), or my faulty mind. I thought he died a couple of years ago from complication of his decease. Anybody else remember this?

I haven't read the thread, but I wanted to drop in long enough to say my two cents.

We lost a great physicist, and an admirable man. Hawking was the embodiment of tenacity... that disease just had to take a back seat to what he wanted in life. He was intelligent enough to do in his head what accomplished physicists need pencil and paper, or even a computer, to do.

RIP Stephen.

A Brief History of Time was published in 1988.

And yet, as far as science has moved on from that point, I have a feeling that people are still going to be reading that book in time to come, that Hawking's name will be a wave which propagates through time and space for a great deal longer than he lived for. A remarkable man, with a remarkable mind, an irrepressible intellect, which not even the limitations placed upon it by being housed in a ruined body, could stifle.

His death has struck me very hard. I first read A Brief History of Time when I was ten years old. I remember picking it up from a charity book shelf at my local doctors office. They offered books for small donations, a few pence. Reading that book was not the thing which fired my scientific curiosity, but it was one of those moments of enlightenment, when someone puts a thing to you in such a perfect way, that you need put no effort at all into painting the concept in your mind, seeing the cogs and gears of the concept grind together to produce the end result.

He had a beautiful way of thinking, a wonderful way of writing, and I am frankly distraught to hear that he is gone from the world. But, I am glad that he has found his way from the prison in which he was confined for so many years. The energy which was his thought and wit, has now fled his body, and I only hope it finds a new place in the universe, one which reflects his importance to the world he left behind.

I just saw the news-how the man survived so long would've baffled the late great man himself.

I'm going to stop short of calling it a miracle but I believe he stuck around for a reason, and the radioactive man (science fans will get the inside joke) will be sorely missed.

Stephen, you were what us 90's kids call a cool dude, and you had a bitchin' set of wheels (that's millennial talk) and your legacy will live on until the end of the universe.

Rest freely, Stephen.

The world has lost one of the most brilliant minds of all time.

Now I'm not sure I'd go that far.

Brilliant, yes, but 'most brilliant of all time'? I would respectfully and heartily disagree.

"Try to make sense of what you see and wonder about what makes the universe exist , however difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do, and succeed at , It matters that you don’t just give up so remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet"
Prof Stephen Hawking , 2012.

Can't say I really care.

Flame away.

Not only was he a great physicist but also a great thinker for the future of the human race, how we are destroying our habitat, how we need to escape earth sooner rather than later for the sake of our species.
He was also a fighter for the future of the NHS here in Great Britain.
May he rest in peace.

I pray for his soul but would it matter to him or would he think I'm wasting my TIME?(

He doesn't need your prayers, he now knows.

If there is a god, and he is merciful, then he will have mercy, is there any choice? If not then what are you banking on?



Yeah he knows now, but do you?

You want to wait or what?

Up to you.

When Jesus grabs you by the throat and says, "wtf were you thinking?!"

What will you say?

Nailed it!

For the record, you said it with more eloquence than I have tried to.

We lost a great mind. He lived well beyond his life expectancy.

I can't dispute his physics but can challenge his philosophy.

I'm sure he wouldn't mind.

RIP Steven.

You have found your answers.

A big fan of his stuff, most of it over my head though.

Since this is a conspiracy site, I can't help but bring up one about him that I heard some time ago. It was claimed for the last 20 years or more, he was just a puppet. In a literal sense. At one time he was a brilliant man, but for the last years, he was not much more than a shell in a chair. The words he "spoke" were actually sent to his computer by someone else somewhere. Another physicist perhaps, passing off ideas that would be more readily accepted if it came from Hawking.

Food for thought...



Interesting.

I don't believe it, tho.

Would Dr. Hawking care?

I doubt it.

So no prob.

I don't think I really believe it either.

But let's just say for the sake of entertainment, a group or government wanted to push, oh I don't know, say... global climate change.
What better way to push it to the masses than through the mouth of someone who is regarded as one of the, if not the, most brilliant men on earth.
No one would be the wiser. He could make the comment at some symposium. The sheeple would hear the words come strait from his "mouth", without him actually uttering anything. All the while, his handlers in the background can deliver most any message they wish from this brilliant man.

Not saying it did happen... But I have heard much more crazy stories here. LOL

The world is full of geniuses these days, mostly because there are so many more people who know how to read and write and post stuff on the Internet. Back in the long time gone, humanity only had a few pop up every once in a while. Just enough to keep us moving forward a little.

I suspect that the most brilliant human of all time is unknown, and died or was killed when they were young. Transcendental brilliance and humanity don't mix well.
