Physicist Stephen Hawking Walks in his Dreams, Times Reports

Stephen Hawking, the physicist whose motor neuron disease left him virtually unable to move, escapes his wheelchair when he dreams, according to an interview in the London-based Times today.

Hawking, 71, is always able-bodied in his dreams, the newspaper cited him as saying. The Cambridge University professor and best-selling author was diagnosed with the debilitating condition when he was 21. He lost the use of his hands and voice and communicates with a computerized voice.

International fame has affected his personal life, the newspaper cited him as saying. “I can’t disguise myself with a beard and dark glasses. The wheelchair gives me away.”
