DIANNE BUT­LER OUT OF THE BOX

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Gadgets - STEPHEN HAWK­ING’S GRAND DE­SIGN, SBS One, 8.35pm

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.
