Back in the 1990's I read an article in an encyclopaedia on science that had a photo of Stephen Hawking Ph. D. at the beginning of the article and I was given the impression that he collaborated with the author of the article or perhaps even wrote most of it himself. Several paragraphs jumped out at me on String Theory that reminded me of what I was hearing from near death experiencers about what they saw during their out of the body experience. Basic String Theory, to my thinking, hints at a very different origin for intelligence than the traditional Darwinian model of Evolution postulated. In my opinion.... a true "Theory of Everything" will offer a logical explanation for certain types of paranormal phenomena that does not exactly discredit them.
