Karina and I were looking to get out after the blizzard yesterday so we went to see The Theory of Everything about Stephen Hawking. I like seeing movies after the Oscar nominations come out, and had already seen Selma and The Imitation Game. I had first learned about Dr. Hawking in Physics class in high school, and found his work fascinating (especially his struggles about whether to acknowledge a creator of the world). The technology that Dr. Hawking used to speak sounded exactly like I had remembered it.
The one thing I will never understand is how Dr. Hawking is so anti-Israel when the technology that enables him to communicate with the world was produced in Israel. I would hope that Dr. Hawking would learn to appreciate Israel’s technological innovations and appreciate that physics and politics are two separate fields.
