Quotations on Intelligent Life and Universe

 

1) “Even if there is only one possible unified theory, it is just a set of rules and equations. What is it that breathes fire into the equations and makes a universe for them to describe?” – Stephen Hawking

2) “God not only plays dice, He also sometimes throws the dice where they cannot be seen.” -Stephen Hawking

3) “If we do discover a complete theory, it should be in time understandable in broad principle by everyone. Then we shall all, philosophers, scientists, and just ordinary people be able to take part in the discussion of why we and the universe exist.” – Stephen Hawking

4) “Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change.” – Stephen Hawking

5) “It is no good getting furious if you get stuck. What I do is keep thinking about the problem but work on something else. Sometimes it is years before I see the way forward. In the case of information loss and black holes, it was 29 years.” – Stephen Hawking

6) “It is not clear that intelligence has any long-term survival value.” – Stephen Hawking

7) “My goal is simple. It is a complete understanding of the universe, why it is as it is and why it exists at all.” – Stephen Hawking

8) “The usual approach of science of constructing a mathematical model cannot answer the questions of why there should be a universe for the model to describe. Why does the universe go to all the bother of existing?” – Stephen Hawking

9) “To confine our attention to terrestrial matters would be to limit the human spirit.” – Stephen Hawking

10) “We are just an advanced breed of monkeys on a minor planet of a very average star. But we can understand the Universe. That makes us something very special.” – Stephen Hawking
