In the chapter; (pg 101)
Stephen Hawking says, he had no choice.
In the next line the writer states, Surely I wanted to say, living creatively with the reality of his disintegrating body was a choice?
What does that really mean, regarding the answer given in meritnation?
This sentence spoken by the narrator is a mockery at the negativity which Stephen Hawkings felt because of his disability. He said that he was not brave. However, what could be a greater example of bravery than the fact that he drew courage and derived productivity out of a completely disintegrating body?
