在史蒂芬·霍金教授明确地否定了上帝创造宇宙的观点,并声称大爆炸是物理学的必然结果之后,本文盘点了霍金的10句智慧之言。
After Professor Stephen Hawking apparently rubbished the idea of a God, claiming the Big Bang was an inevitable result of physics, here are ten of our favourite quotes.
霍金谈宇宙为什么存在:
Stephen Hawking on why the universe exists:
“如果我们找到了这个问题的答案,那将会是人类理性的最终胜利——那时候我们将能够了解上帝的思想。”
"If we find the answer to that, it would be the ultimate triumph of human reason – for then we would know the mind of God."
——《时间简史》
Stephen Hawking on God:
霍金谈上帝:
"Because there is a law such as gravity, the Universe can and will create itself from nothing ... It is not necessary to invoke God to light the blue touch paper and set the Universe going."
“因为存在像万有引力这样一种物理定律,所以宇宙能够并且也将从无到有创造自身...没有必要祈求上帝点燃宇宙起始之火并让宇宙运转。”

——霍金:《上帝没有创造宇宙》/《泰晤士报》
Stephen Hawking on the possibility of contact with alien life:
霍金谈与外星生命接触的可能性:
"I think it would be a disaster. The extraterrestrials would probably be far in advance of us. The history of advanced races meeting more primitive people on this planet is not very happy, and they were the same species. I think we should keep our heads low."
“我认为这将会是一场灾难。外星生命将很可能比我们先进许多。在地球上先进种族与更为原始的种族相遇的历史并不十分愉快,而且相同的人种尚且如此,更何况与我们不同的外星生命呢。我认为我们应当不要主动接触外星生命。”

Stephen Hawking on authorship:
霍金谈著作
"Someone told me that each equation I included in the book would halve the sales. I therefore resolved not to have any equations at all."
“一些人告诉我,每在书里引用一个方程式销量就会减半。因此我决定完全不引用方程式。”

——《时间简史》
Stephen Hawking on computer viruses:
霍金谈电脑病毒:
"Maybe it says something about human nature, that the only form of life we have created so far is purely destructive"
“当谈论电脑病毒时,我们可能是在说一些人性的东西,电脑病毒是目前为止人类创造的唯一一种纯粹有害的生命形式。”

Stephen Hawking on euthanasia:
霍金谈安乐死:
"The victim should have the right to end his life, if he wants. But I think it would be a great mistake. However bad life may seem, there is always something you can do, and succeed at. While there's life, there is hope."
“疾病的受害者应当拥有结束自己生命的权利,如果他想的话。不过我认为这将是一个巨大的错误。不管生命可能看起来有多糟糕,你往往都能够做些什么,并且能够取得成功。当生命还在的时候,希望就在。”
People's Daily Online
——中国《人民日报》
Stephen Hawking on celebrity:
霍金谈名声:
"The downside of my celebrity is that I cannot go anywhere in the world without being recognised. It is not enough for me to wear dark sunglasses and a wig. The wheelchair gives me away."
“我的名声带来的不好之处就是,我去世界任何地方都会被认出来。我戴上墨镜与假发都还不够。因为我的轮椅把我出卖了。”
Interview on Israeli television
——以色列电视台访谈
Stephen Hawking on cutting corners:
霍金谈削减教育投入:
"To show this diagram properly, I would really need a four dimensional screen. However, because of government cuts, we could manage to provide only a two dimensional screen."
“为了恰当地呈现这个图表,我真的将需要一个四维的屏幕。然而,由于政府削减了预算,我将想办法提供仅有二维的屏幕。”

——《时间之始》,公开演讲
Stephen Hawking on imperfection:
霍金谈缺陷:
"Without imperfection, you or I would not exist."
“如果没有缺陷,你或我都将不复存在。”

Stephen Hawking on Stephen Hawking:
霍金谈霍金:
"It is a waste of time to be angry about my disability. One has to get on with life and I haven't done badly. People won't have time for you if you are always angry or complaining."
“为自己的残疾生气,那是浪费时间。一个人必须与生命友善相处,而我做得还不是太好。如果你总是生气或者抱怨,那么你的生命将不会有多少时间。”
