Hawking's PhD

Post by Rum » Mon Oct 23, 2017 6:14 pm

2 Democrats fix public spending to normal...8 years

His ideas are interesting. Prefer the gravistar alternative idea myself....singularities where the laws of the universe cease to function, that's like Marvel comic universe territory (too bizarre even for me).

He knows his wrong - he's aware of the possibilities in his own field. Too much credibility at stake though.

I read the entire theses last night.

It's about physics.
