Hawking's PhD

Postby Rum » Mon Oct 23, 2017 6:14 pm

Written in 1966 and no doubt completely unintelligible to me - if not a few clever clogses here it is now available to download from Cambridge University. The demand was so great this morning that the site crashed. It is all about what happens when the universe expands and you can find it here:

Jonson, like most of his colleagues, detested Puritans; the Puritans hated the theater right back, and abolished it as soon as they took power, along with Christmas, bright clothes and the female orgasm.

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.
