Being Canadian gets better every day. First we have Beer and Maple syrup, and now there’s a chance that the greatest mind of the 20th Century will join our ranks. Even if its only a temporary posting, the prospect of Stephen Hawking joining the Perimeter Institute along side of Neil Turok is great, even if it doesn’t happen.
You’re probably wondering why should I care? Well, for the simple fact that if Mr. Hawking were to leave Cambridge for Waterloo, the minds that would converge on this “small” community in souther Ontario would be huge.
Think of what all those minds could come up with? Maybe the Grand Unified Theory, String Theory, think of the doors this will open?
Makes me proud to be a Canadian.
