I agree that the nature will take always the road if we cannot solve or if we disappear, but we have the possibility to solve.


Hawking genious is solving problems about black holes that do not exist.

What a great thread! I'm just looking at it and am glad to see so many friends (in spite of differing views) from previous contests. In particular Christian Corda congratulations and a big hurrah! And Lorraine Ford I like your physics and political courage in support of senseable science (IMHO). And Akinbo thanks for your previous support and level headedness. And hello to everyone else.

And Pentcho if I were coach of a football team I would want you on my line, I have not seen anyone...
