Stephen Hawking’s Eventual Goal of Science

- To Provide a Single Theory that Describes the Whole Universe -

Most scientists separate this problem into two separate parts

1. Laws tellings us how the universe changes over time

"If we know what the universe is like at any one time then these laws can tell us what the universe is like at any later time"

2. Question of the Initial State of the Universe

"Some scientists believe that science should only be concerned with the first part, regarding the second part as a matter of religion or metaphysics."

”Science separates all these problems into partial theories describing and predicting a certain limited class of observations - It may be that this approach is completely wrong. If everything in the universe depends on everything else in a fundamental way. It might be impossible to get to a full solution by investigating parts of the problem in isolation.”
