Stephen Hawking may have had the best comeback in human history.
John Oliver: You've stated that there could be an infinite number of parallel universes, does that mean that there is a universe out there where I am smarter than you?
Stephen Hawking: Yes, and also a universe where you're funny.
Also, seeing Stephen Hawking smile makes me smile for no reason.
since he is only able to write 1 word every 30 sek. its not possible for him to have a conversation like that. there for he has to prepare everything he said in that interview days before. i also doubt that he wrote that, i think it were some comedy-writers from the show who gave him the lines.
It is. If something is infinite, then anything that has a non-zero probability of occurring within that space has an infinite chance of occurring, & will hence occur an infinite amount of times, however anything with a zero probability of occurring will not occur, regardless.
Yes, that's because >2 or <1 does not fit within that range, hence it's impossible to occur there. If there's a zero possibility of it occurring it will not occur. >=1 & <=2 is possible within that range, & occurs an infinite amount of times. I'm not trying to say impossibilities will happen in an infinite space, I clearly stated that they won't happen, I'm saying all possibilities will occur, & will occur an infinite amount of times. You literally just stated that with your own analogy.
not necessarily, your ignoring the fact that probability is just probability. there is also the chance that there isn't a single universe in which he is cleverer than hawking, thus making your argument self contradicting! consider the following, you have a dice and you roll it a hundred times are you guaranteed to roll a two? how about a thousand? a Million? even a Googleplex amount of times? so why does this rule change for an infinite amount of rolls. My point is there is an infinite amount of possibilities within an infinite amount of attempts, does not mean that any particular outcome is guaranteed.
There is no universe in which there are no universes where there are no universes where he is not cleverer than hawking. It's impossible. A multiverse hosts a universes with their own laws, & not the other way around, the same way a virtual machine can't do anything to a host physical machine. Anyway, you're too busy treating infinity as though it's finite, which it is not. Although you can roll something 10^100 times & still get no result, infinity isn't a googol, it doesn't have a size, it's a way of stating something doesn't end, & hence even if a result is not satisfied, it will simply test a bigger number each time, until a result is satisfied. & then test even bigger numbers until a result is satisfied again. There's no limit to how many times infinity can test a probability, & hence regardless of how small, it'll eventually occur, since you can simply keep adding zeros until something happens, & you quite literally have all the space/time in the world to do that.
Sure, it starts small. Little robotic pets and mechanical butlers, and then before you know it they're stealing signs and sailing out to international waters to throw beer bashes to get around laws restricting the sale-times of alcohol.
