Could Stephen Hawking’s Final Paper Predict the End of the World – And Prove the Existence of the Multiverse?by 👨‍💻 Graham Pierrepoint

The passing of Professor Stephen Hawking earlier this month hit millions of people from around the world and in multitudes of different fields hard. Professor Hawking’s writing and research has helped us to understand the universe around us in ways through which we may never have been able to appreciate before – and while we may still be decades or even centuries away from being able to fully grasp the meaning of life, or being able to communicate with life forms that may exist elsewhere in the universe, Hawking’s work has helped us to appreciate quite how complex and fascinating our relatively small corner of the universe really is – and he did so with passion and in a way that everyone could understand and learn more about in their own time.

It’s being reported that Hawking submitted one final research paper – ‘A Smooth Exit from Eternal Inflation’ - alongside co-author Professor Thomas Hertog, which could offer incredible new insight into how scientists could effectively predict the end of the world – and how we may have access to, or knowledge of, other universes beyond our reach. The concept of a ‘multiverse’ is something which has not only persisted in theory, but which has bled into science fiction and popular media over the years – and Hawking’s belief that more than one universe may be in play comes into full view in a paper that is being referred to as ‘ground-breaking’ via the media.

Prof Hawking’s theory of ‘no boundaries’ has previously suggested that the Big Bang is responsible for the creation of our universe, and that it has no restrictions – and it is through his work with Prof Hertog that such analysis has been applied to the potential existence of universes parallel to our own. The paper in question is currently being reviewed and will likely be published in due course via journal – with some experts already predicting that the theories published therein could hold the key to incredible new possibilities and analysis. Such was Prof Hawking’s work – breaking down boundaries and looking at incredible new ways as to how we came into existence – all the while looking to the future. Hawking was, for example, concerned greatly with the growth of AI – and while he never got to see its full potential, his warnings and words will always be heeded.

Prof Hertog paid tribute to his co-author in a touching yet bittersweet manner via the media – “He (Hawking) has often been nominated for the Nobel (prize) and should have won it. Now, he never can.”
