I have wondered this before, with no disrespect to Mr. Hawking. When I watched one of his videos a while back it seemed like he always looked
distressed and his eyes are constantly wandering up and to the side, almost like he is in a delirious state, yet the most coherent and specific
sentences are coming from his machine.
It's just speculation, but it made wonder if it was pre-programmed responses or if someone else was talking for him. They claim it's software that
measures his eye lid movement, it must be very efficient.
On a side note, Hawking claimed that if Aliens exist they would be hostile and only here for conquest

I have always thought that about him.. hell I do not trust anyone.. lol.. so why believe he is still even SMART.. where does he do his work? All in
his head.. where does he record it. Where are his books he has dictated?

I don't really know how to post videos, but Family Guy actually made fun of Stephen Hawking way worse than this thread is being interpreted as doing.
Is it also funny that Seth Macfarlene makes jokes about 9/11 in that stupid teddy bear movie? (one of the worst movies ever BTW). Please somebody post
that Family Guy clip to shut up these hypocrites!!
So the premise in the OP is disrespectful, but Family Guy is funny right?
Isn't that called doublethink??

The mobile links don't work with my computer,but here's one of the clips:
The thread also makes me think of an episode of Law and Order: Criminal Intent about a physicist like Hawking who pretended to be abused and killed
one of his colleagues with Samarium because some big theory was false.
Also, people need to lighten up about this thread.
I found it quite amusing, yet thought provoking...what if Steve's being controlled by TPTB? I'm big into mythology/classical writings and you can't
believe how many inside jokes there are, my faves being Loki/bestiality of Norse myth and the good ol Oedipus motherf***er riffs.
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) – also referred to as motor neurone disease in some Commonwealth of Nations countries and as Lou Gehrig's
disease in the United States – is a debilitating disease with varied etiology characterized by rapidly progressive weakness, muscle atrophy and
fasciculations, muscle spasticity, difficulty speaking (dysarthria), difficulty swallowing (dysphagia), and difficulty breathing (dyspnea). ALS is the
most common of the five motor neuron diseases.
The diagnosis of motor neurone disease came when Hawking was 21. This was soon after he had met Jane Wilde who was to become his first wife. At that
time doctors gave him a life expectancy of two years. Hawking fell into a depression, and though his doctors advised that he continue with his
studies, he felt there was little point. At the same time, however, his relationship with Jane, an undergraduate in London, was slowly developing,
and the couple were engaged in October 1964. Hawking later said that the engagement "gave him something to live for." Despite the
disease's progression – Hawking had difficulty walking without support, and his speech was almost unintelligible — he returned to his work with
enthusiasm and success.
so at 21... he received his doctorate with restricted ability to communicate...
interesting... very interesting...
Note mods.. I have to quote for the walk through forgive me
born 8 January 1942
21 makes it 1963
using wheelchair end of the 1960s
From 1974 he could not feed himself or get out of bed, so graduate students helped, receiving free accommodation in return. His speech became so
slurred that he could be understood only by people who knew him well. During a visit to CERN in Geneva in 1985, Hawking contracted pneumonia,
which in his condition was life-threatening as it further restricted his already limited respiratory capacity. He had an emergency tracheotomy, losing
what remained of his ability to speak.
1974 he could not feed himself...
the speech thing
and 1985 lost altogether
The point for this hypothetical occurrence would have been in 1974 to 85..
now during this window the wife is out emotionally by 77
Divorced in 90
however if graduate students are doing the care of day to day...
80s would be the time for it..
The next question is the tech..
To keep a man alive is much different...
we go back over this here.. (mods again I plead for tolerance)
Late stage disease symptoms
Difficulty swallowing and chewing make eating normally very difficult and increase the risk of choking or aspirating food into the lungs. In later
stages of the disease, aspiration pneumonia and maintaining a healthy weight can become a significant problem and may require insertion of a feeding
tube. As the diaphragm and intercostal muscles (rib cage) that support breathing weaken, measures of lung function such as forced vital capacity and
inspiratory pressure diminish. In respiratory onset ALS, this may occur before significant limb weakness is apparent. External machines such as
bilevel positive pressure ventilation (frequently referred to by the tradename BiPAP) are frequently used to support breathing, first at night, and
later during the daytime as well. BiPAP is only a temporary remedy, however, and it is recommended that long before BiPAP stops being effective,
patients should decide whether to have a tracheotomy and long term mechanical ventilation. At this point, some patients choose palliative hospice
care. Most people with ALS die of respiratory failure or pneumonia.
Although respiratory support can ease problems with breathing and prolong survival, it does not affect the progression of ALS. Most people with ALS
die from respiratory failure, usually within three to five years from the onset of symptoms. The median survival time from onset to death is around 39
months, and only 4% survive longer than 10 years. The best-known person with ALS, Stephen Hawking, has lived with the disease for more than 50
years, though his is an unusual case.
looking over this with other research... this man is supposed to be dead...
ten years is the expected life span post diagnosis with symptoms... Hawking's is 50 years post diagnosis
Imagine, he's just this lump of flesh that cannot do anything for himself- those buttons he is pushing do nothing. The TPTB are controling everything
he says because they know that we've grown to respect his ideas (ARE THEY HIS?).
Love and light x
i dont watch him hardly at all because he does not display intelligence.
he regards the big bang theory as fact.
he regards the black hole hypothesis as fact.
then he decides that time would slow down as you approached a black hole therefore eventually stop. another theory.
from there he jumps in and says god cannot exist because in a timeless area the question as to whether god exists cannot be put.
