Stephen Hawking is one of the greatest mind ever. He is popular around the world for his work in theoretical physics. Stephan was born on January 8, 1942, (exactly 300 years after the death of Galileo) in Oxford, England. He graduated natural science at Cambridge but when he was only 21 years old he noticed the first signs of ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis). The medical experts predicted only 2 and a half years to live.
Today, he is 74 years old, and he teaches, researches and gives the world wonderful messages. Because his expectations were lowered to 0, he considers everything as a reward.
He was very strong and he didn’t let that condition to stop him. He continued studying and now has 12 honorary degrees. He is researching about the Big Bang, the universe, and scientific theories. Unfortunately, he is in a wheelchair and is not able to speak or move. But, this condition doesn’t stop him to sends important messages. He says that we should always look up at the stars and not down look down at feet; that we should never quit from anything; that our life would be empty if we don’t have a work that will give us purpose. Adds that if someone is lucky enough to find love, he should never throw it away.
During his recent lecture at the Royal Institute in London, he compared the black holes to the depression. He chose them because they are both impossible to escape. His message for the black holes is that actually, they are not that black as they are believed. No one can be trapped inside forever because the things go outside from the black hole potentially to another universe. So, if someone is feeling like he is in a black hole, he should not give up because there is a way out of there.
He was also talking about his disabilities. He says that every victim should have the right to end his life if he wants to do that. But, according to Stephan that is a big mistake, because when there is life, there is hope. He says that it is no one’s fault if someone is a disabled person. He should not blame the world for his condition. According to Stephan, he should have a positive thinking. He adds that disabled people have to focus on the activities in which their disability won’t represent them a severe handicap. Maybe they cannot be winners at Olympic Games, but the science is an amazing area for the people with a handicap because it is the work of the mind.
Stephan says that his disabilities are not a substantial handicap, but they have actually helped him because they protected him from lecturing and administrative work that otherwise he would have to do. Stephan succeeded because of the enormous help from his associates, wife, students, and kids. He explains that some people are always ready to help, but they need inspiration in order to feel that their efforts to help will be worth.
Stephen Hawking is motivating the rest of us to pay attention that there is a relation between the stars and each one of us.
Lucy, his daughter, took part at the lecture saying that Stephan’s enviable desire is to keep going. He has the ability to point out all his energy, his reserves, his psychological focus to that idea of keeping to go on. Stephan does not want to keep going in order to survive, but he wants to produce amazing work and gives lectures, writes books, and motivates other people with disabilities.
