Stephen Hawking's illness was a cultural icon

Stephen  Hawking's  illness  was  a  cultural  icon

Stephen Hawking's illness was a cultural icon. Because, American writer John Updike once said: “Most writers need a wound, either physical or spiritual”. It could be disease, separation, accidents, otherwise at least an annoying abscess -something. God gave Stephen Hawking a little more than this blessing. When doctors told the length of his life at very young age, indeed which was not the last word in his life, albeit rather no good news for him was waiting anywhere. The bad news of inactivity in a solid prison has been written in his fate. As stated by John Updike, no way to describe as ‘blessing’ to Stephen Hawking's illness. But many years later, Hawking said in an interview, “I can communicate better now than before I lost my voice. I have lived most of my life in the expectation of an early death, so time has always been precious to me,” Hawking said in 2006. “I have so much that I want to do. I hate wasting time.”
It seems to him that the disease brings good luck in his life. He is happier than ever, while only around 10 percent of people survive more than 10 years with the disease. Life was full of boring before. On the basis of his close proximity to death, he realized that life is a very living matter. Hawking has lived in his brain much more than his outer stone-life. Who would say, whether the prison had made Hawking a writer? For being a writer it may be that this physical impediment has freed his mind, the release, which did not match with the destination of other people who were suffering before from this disability.
Remember, while writing brief history, he also lost his ability to speak for pneumonia; As a result, it was not possible to take advantage of giving dictation. Since then, he has to choose the option of writing in an alternative method. It is not for anyone to be able to pass this difficult path without being a strictly persistent person.

Hawking's writing table will not match with any writer's table in the world. He wrote in a very difficult process. A special technique made by the engineer had to choose the desired word or letter from the probable Vocabulary and write it down through the computer. The method of writing is very complex. Hawking's writing pen was strange and acute. Owing to the software which made by 'swiftkey' company, how was Hawking's words out from the machine pen so neat, and how was filled with comical perspective in each page, It is another mystery.

His wheelchair, which he could no longer drive independently and could not move his neck it has been turned into a cultural icon, while there is no evidence that more intelligent people live longer with ALS.

Stephen Hawking's world was not just in science

Stephen Hawking was a brilliant theoretical physicist of this era in the world. Stephen Hawking is no longer, what is this "no"? Especially in the wonderful world of space and time, how is it to be 'no'? If Stephen Hawking was alive, he would have fun in this context, would have given an intellectual answer. And already gave answers to questions about death.

His view about death was candid. He was not afraid of death, has no hurry to die before that has to do a lot of things. He has a brain like a computer, whose tools if destroyed will not work anymore. And no heaven or hell is waiting for a damaged computer. According to him, Heaven or Hell is a mythical story created by humans who fear in the dark. Hawking had to face severe criticism after highlighting such a statement in the book 'The Grand Design' published in 2010. He directly said in the book -There is no need one God to operate the universe.

Hawking made a controversial statement by the sentence,  "I am an atheist,” and "God didn't exist " in 2014 during an interview with Pablo Jauregui, a journalist from El Mundo, a Spanish language newspaper. His full quote below:
 “Before we understand science, it is natural to believe that God created the universe. But now science offers a more convincing explanation. What I meant by ‘we would know the mind of God’ is, we would know everything that God would know if there were a God, which there isn’t. I’m an atheist.”

In the condolence of his colleagues at the departure times of Hawking, not only came up his scientist entity but there is also his humorous, vivid presence, conjecture, bizarre activities, and humorous comments - all of them, are as important as his theory, where has permanently put a full stop instead of comma now. This aspect was also found on Twitter while Hawking's fans and many people remember his contribution to the advancement of theoretical physics as well as his humorous memory.

Some examples of Hawking's humor can be given. On June 28, 2009, in honor of the Time travelers (who thinks they can travel in the past and the future) Hawking threw a cocktail party. But no one came because the invitation was not sent to the guests to attend the party. The invitation was sent the next day, i.e., on June 29th. Time travel is impossible, Hawking's merry explanation, this is the experimental evidence, While everyone is shocked.
In 2010, in a lecture titled 'My Brief History', Hawking said something about his school life, as - all the meritorious were his classmates, and he was very chaotic, the handwriting was the cause of disappointment for his teachers. But his classmates gave him the title of Einstein. The situation was such that at the age of 12, his two friends made a bet among themselves. The issue of bet is - whether he can do anything or not in life. The one who wins he will get a bag sweet. He does not know if it has been a settlement of this bet, then what is it? '

Stephen Hawking used to bet on various topics of science. But his fate of the win was bad.  On December 10, 1974, Hawking made a bet with US physicist Kip Throne, that the cosmic X-ray source is Cygnus X-1, not a black hole. In 1990, defeated Hawking agreed to gave his fellow physicist KipThorne a one-year subscription to Adult Magazine 'Penthouse'.In 1997 he was made another bet with physicist John Presskill. Subject, black hole information will also be lost. In 2004, he accepted the mistake and issued the Ultimate Baseball Encyclopedia to Dr. John Presskill. And on July 04, 2012, Hawking had a bet with Gordon Kane of Michigan University that the Higgs particle wouldn’t be found. He acknowledges he has just lost $100.

Stephen Hawking's comment about the discovery is also memorable. In a speech to the Arizona State University explaining exactly how the Eureka moment of scientific discovery, he said,” I wouldn’t compare it to sex, but it lasts longer”. Suchlike there are many juicy comments of Hawking. He was also aware of the history of the world. His commentary on the creatures of another planet is evidence of this.

Hawking is warned when everyone is saying that he is quite thrilled to talk about alien creatures or aliens. In 2010, in a lecture on 'Into the Universe with Stephen Hawking', he said, " if aliens visit us, the outcome would be much as when Columbus landed in America, which didn’t turn out well for the Native Americans. We only have to look at ourselves to see how intelligent life might develop into something we wouldn’t want to meet.”

Not only was history-conscious, Stephen Hawking did not even forget about standing against repression. In 2013, Hawking boycotted a major conference of scientists held in Israel in response to the request from Palestinian academics. He expressed his apprehension after receiving the Donald Trump Republican nomination in the last presidential election in 2016. In an interview with the New York Times, he commented that the brain of Donald Trump might be a cause for concern.
Stephen Hawking always emphasized on free will and work rather than fate. His statement about destiny is quite obvious. In 'Black Holes and Baby Universe and Other Essays', he wrote, 'I have noticed that even people who claim everything is predetermined and that we can do nothing to change it, look before they cross the road.”
Stephen Hawking has never been discontinued from the research even when he is suffering from incurable disease, Motor Neurone, at the age of 21. He contributed immensely to the new development of physics. And it was possible due to the fact of denying things like destiny. He has given importance to this achievement issue of the people.

Stephen Hawking advice to the next generations in an interview with Diane Sawyer of ABC News, June 2010, “One, remember to look up at the star and not down at your feet. Two, never give up work. Work gives you meaning and purpose and life is empty without it. Three, if you are lucky enough to find love, remember it is there and don’t throw it away.”

Five ways Stephen Hawking predicted that the mankind will end

Famous physicist Stephen Hawking has predicted some of the terrible things about how human civilization will face destruction. He died at the age of 76. From artificial intelligence to nuclear war, many issues have created the risk of human civilization. Mankind should be careful about his prophecies. Cambridge News has made a list of the top 5 predictions of Hawking.

Stephen Hawking's 5 terrifying Predictions are given below


1 The earth will be destroyed by the fireball

Hawking said in his view of the possible reason for the destruction of the earth -We will all die in less than 600 years. Because, the earth will overpopulate and we have to need a huge amount of energy consumption, that will make the planet burned. That causes the whole world to become red-hot. Prof Hawking gave this theory at Tencent WE Summit Beijing conference in November, where scientists from different countries of the world presented to share their ideas. Hawking said, "By the year 2600, the world’s population would be standing shoulder to shoulder, and the electricity consumption would make the Earth glow red-hot.” To protect the world, we have to take ideas from the American TV series 'Star Trek' and boldly go where no one has gone before,” he said in the appearance, and develop the technology to travel at the speed of light.

2 Robots will occupy the world

The Terminator 'movie you must have seen. This year, Professor Hawking said that artificial intelligence will replace humans. In an interview with Wired magazine, Hawking expressed his fear, “We need to move forward on artificial intelligence development but we also need to be mindful of its very real dangers”. He also said, ""I fear that AI may replace humans altogether. If people design computer viruses, someone will design AI that replicates itself. This will be a new form of life that will outperform humans."

3 Earth will be destroyed by nuclear technology and human aggression

At present, many countries in the world have nuclear weapons. War may be fixed at any time. In an interview given to the BBC on his 75th birthday celebrations, he said, “I fear evolution has inbuilt greed and aggression to the human genome. There is no sign of conflict lessening, and the development of militarised technology and weapons of mass destruction could make that disastrous. The best hope for the survival of the human race might be independent colonies in space.

4 We have to find a place fast on the other planet.

In order to prevent the extinction of humans in the world, they have to look for technical capability. In particular, there is a need to create a living environment on other planets and have to develop technical systems. Otherwise, mankind will become extinct in climate change, overpopulation and pandemics.

5 Donald Trump

Stephen Hawking did not shy away from criticizing President Donald Trump of the United States. When president Trump was against to signing the climate change agreement in Paris which aims to tackle the threat of global warming Hawking was among his most vocal opponents.The issue of removing the risks caused by climate change in the world get the importance at that conference.  In July, speaking to the BBC Hawking warned, Trump’s decision to withdraw would “push the Earth over the brink. We are close to the tipping point where global warming becomes irreversible. Trump's action could push the Earth over the brink, to become like Venus, with a temperature of two hundred and fifty degrees, and raining sulphuric acid.”

Criticizing the US president Trump, Hawking said, ""By denying the evidence for climate change, and pulling out of the Paris Climate Agreement, Donald Trump will cause avoidable environmental damage to our beautiful planet, endangering the natural world, for us and our children."
