THE THEORY OF
EVERYTHING – 2014
This is a very beautiful film
that shows love, dedication and commitment. To fall in love so fast and be
faithful so long – till death them parts – is a fairy tale, an untellable story
and the film tries to tell it.
Doctors when they are confronted
to a disease they do not know or understand are ready to tell you will die
within two years. This film, this Stephen Hawking is the most brilliant proof
that doctors’ predictions, and alas sometimes their prescriptions, are useless
and nonsensical. They can just not admit they do not know.
Stephen Hawking is also the proof
that your body can become completely obsolete, unreactive, dilapidated and yet
your mind may keep all its power, and the first power man’s mind has is to be
able to choose between ending the suffering of the body before intended by
nature or using his mind to its full potential till the end of time, till the
natural end of his time.
As for the famous theory of the
black holes, of the limitless universe in space and time, and of the big bang
that starts from something that is not considered as being the beginning, which
is obvious since it existed before the big bang otherwise there would not have
been a big bang, I will not here discuss the few details I could discuss. For
example that time is a human invention and that nature only contains duration. This
is so true that we still have not been able to configure some time counting
machine that would come to the perfect dimension of a second, minute, hour, day,
month, year that would enable us to skip the leap years and other silly little
corrections like that.
The fake debate about God or no
God is just what it is a fake debate. If the universe is limitless it has no
beginning point, hence it has no creator. If there is a creator somewhere we
can always wonder the way Buddha used to wonder: but who in the cosmos created
that God, and that opens a door that leads to so many other doors that there is
no logic along that line. The myth that you can find the perfect mathematical
equation that will demonstrate the big bang theory is what it is a myth that
cannot anyway evade the fact that if the big bang and the universe can be
described by mathematical formulas, then it is obvious this universe is
logical, is rational. Can anything rational exist all by itself outside the
brain of a sentient and rational being? And that cannot be man since man is so
young in this universe. We can always say it is the result of the architecture
of the universe and that architecture cannot stand one minute if it does not
respect some balancing elements, etc.
And you see the result. My
grandmother is turning over and over in her tomb and she is losing her last
teeth because she is chattering with fear, she is shattered by fear.
I can very precisely explain the origin
and the phylogeny of human language that started somewhere around 250,000 years
ago because it is the product of a very clearly definable situation, but to
look for an origin of the universe which implies the universe is not limitless,
or to accept the idea that the universe is limitless which implies always is
not quantifiable and forever really means forever, does not answer the question
about where all that comes from.
Luckily the film avoided that
level of theory and concentrated on the human side of this heroic suffering and
brilliant inventiveness, though, after one rebuffing session with scientists
that sees several men of science leaving the room in furor and anger before
some Soviet scientist turned the wind around, it does not even hint at the fact
there might be some serious objection against that theory because it is nothing
but a theory, hence a model constructed by the mind of a man, the minds of a
few men. Hence something that has to be taken as what it is: only a human
representation of what man understands about the universe at one moment in
time, one moment in man’s history, and man’s history is the basis of man’s time.
Of course no one expects a film
to give us the final truth about what we do not even know how to imagine.
