DIANNE BUTLER OUT OF THE BOX
STEPHEN Hawking’s interior renovation series continues. After dispatching God last week he’s moved on to The Meaning of Life. Is there any? And what about free will? I don’t know if you’ve been watching this but at the start he says how even though he can’t move, in his mind he’s free. Interesting idea. But is he delusional? Are we all delusional, thinking we make our own choices? Or is the mind subject to the laws of nature? Anyway, I’m sure you’ll still be discussing these things on Tuesday. Hawking reckons philosophy is dead. He would say that though, he’s a scientist.
