A woman finds a Penthouse magazine in a man’s mail and opens it; she places it on a pedestal and flips the pages so that the man can see the pictures and we see a photo of a fully nude woman lying on her stomach (her bare shoulders, back and the side of her breast, nipple and buttocks are seen. However, the scene is quick and it’s hard to see anything other than the side of her breast). A young man is shown in a bathtub and his bare back, chest and shoulders are visible.

A brief history of Hawking’s love — a metaphor for peas and potatoes

I thought it was a biographical film with love elements. In fact, it was a love film with biographical shell. Young Hawking and Jane fell in love, but Hawking was found to have motor neuron disease and was told that he had only two years of life. Jane still married Hawking and hoped to grow old together with him. Here, the story has changed from love drama to marriage drama. The problems in ordinary people’s marriage exist in Hawking’s life. We may be curious about Hawking’s sexual ability and how her wife can tolerate the problems of a lover who can move only with her fingers. These questions are explained in the story and presented in a proper way. The wonderful thing is that these ordinary stories will not make you feel that “great men are just ordinary people” in previous biographical films. On the contrary, what the audience feels is the extraordinary personality of Hawking and his wife, which makes this emotion rise from the part of marriage to a deeper level.

When Hawking and Jane met, they reflected the difference between the two people’s worlds. Jane’s friends teased science students at the party, which showed that Jane’s circle rarely came into contact with people like Hawking. Because of this, they were attracted to each other by their different mysteries. Hawking is a physicist. In his own words, she is a “wise atheist”. Jane believes in the Church of England, and her major is medieval poetry on the Elijah peninsula. Jane comes to Hawking’s house. Hawking’s father asks Jane what painter she likes. Jane answers Turner. Hawking’s father says his portrait has been drenched by fish. Various plots show that Hawking and his family are rational people, and Jane is a perceptual person. Hawking never dances and Jane is eager to dance, but Hawking pretends not to love dancing for Hawking. Fortunately, Hawking took a step for the girl until Hawking was diagnosed with a disease and even sentenced to death. Jane is also willing to be with Hawking. The theory of all things in this scene refers to the attraction of the opposite sex in love. It can let two completely different people come together and make great commitments. But many times, differences are the adhesive when they love each other and will become a hidden danger in marriage.

In his married life, Hawking’s scholarship won the praise of the world, but his physical condition became worse and worse, and he even lost the ability to walk and eat with a spoon. Hawking is suffering from the anxiety of being unable to embrace her lover, and even this anxiety can not be expressed. Jane’s whole life is occupied by taking care of Hawking. She has lost her life, and there are more and more children. On the one hand, it shows that Hawking’s sexual ability is no problem, on the other hand, it also shows that they have to fill the vacancy of emotional life through children.

Facing the handsome teacher of the choir, Jane helped Hawking explain a metaphor of peas and potatoes. In physics, there are two sets of laws to explain the universe, the general theory of relativity controlling the macro universe and the quantum theory of the micro particle world. One potato and one pea. Strangely, the two sets of theories do not follow the same law, as Jane said, It would be much easier if the world were all potatoes. This metaphor is also the core of the whole film. Hawking spent his life trying to reconcile the contradiction between general relativity and quantum mechanics and find a big theory that can explain the whole universe. The so-called macro potato, Jane has also been trying to find the balance between his and Hawking’s two different lives in marriage, that is, the micro pea, and the symbiosis and confrontation of Hawking’s and Jane’s two sets of beliefs, When Hawking proves that the universe has no boundaries, Jane is not happy at all, because Hawking’s every revelation means that he is farther and farther away from Jane’s belief in God. While stripping away the mystery of the universe, he also exhausted the little mystery left by the two people living together day and night.

Hawking tells us in a brief history of time that the universe erupts from a singularity with infinite density and mass and infinitely small volume, gives birth to time and space, condenses into stars under the action of universal gravitation, and the energy in the stellar core resists gravitation to maintain the life of stars. Until one day the stellar energy runs out and cannot resist gravitation, the stars will collapse inward, It becomes a singularity and a black hole until it disappears. If the volume of the star is very huge, it will explode into a super planet, and the dust of the super planet becomes the material to create the planet. However, in the micro sense, our life is not the same. From scratch, combined under the gravity of love, Jane, a great woman, has been resisting the gravity of life with her forbearing energy. But one day, love will be exhausted, love will dissipate, and one day, life will disappear. “Who are we? Why are we here? If we understand this, it will be the ultimate victory of human reason, and then we will know what God really thinks.” Jane was pleased with Hawking’s question. He thought Hawking was finally close to God. Unfortunately, it was just a metaphor out of respect.

Hawking’s life is full of drama and the least dramatic. Such a person who maintains a posture most of his life and has the universe in his mind all the time. The film is the least likely to show his sense of ups and downs in life and the complexity of his heart. Therefore, some people say that the characterization of this film is flat, which is the most irresponsible comment I have ever heard. This is a film driven by emotion. Under the tepid narration, both protagonists hide strong character temperament. On the one hand, Hawking is shaped by the side of Jane. When Hawking is in despair, Jane makes him regain his confidence. At the time of crisis in the hospital bed, it depends on Jane’s bold decision; Then there is Eddie Redmayne, who plays Hawking, once made you forget the existence of the actor. I believe this is Hawking himself. The convulsive face he tried to express is sympathetic. Eddie quietly shows rich emotions from a person who is not allowed to have “play” all over his body, completely resisting the performance of “gravitational collapse”, Will win the Oscar.

Hawking is like Prometheus who stole the fire. God punished him for fear that he would get the truth, but this does not limit Hawking, because time and space are not continuous in Hawking’s world. Just like the end of the film, Hawking and Jane return to the original beauty. In reality, Hawking and Jane are still friends. Even Jane acted as the screenwriter of the film. Their love has become a cross dimensional emotion. Everything goes round and round. The death of stars gives birth to new stars and planets. Hawking and Jane look at their grown-up children. He sighs and looks at all we have created.

The film melts the concept of the theory of everything into the ordinary nuances and disillusionment in life, and the grand and trivial themes map each other. Hawking and Jane find the way to get along with their life theory, and Hawking continues to find the “middle way” in the theory of the universe.

to update

Fortunately, in his later years, Hawking and his second wife divorced and made up with Jane Wilder again, and enjoyed family happiness with their children. Finally, Hawking left on Einstein’s birthday. His life is like a huge fable. In life, he bridged reason and emotion, and intellectually, he transcended time and space. Although he said that miracles and science cannot coexist, he may forget that he himself is miracles and science.
