March 14, 2019 was the first anniversary of the death of Hawking (a world-famous physicist). The simplified Chinese version of his posthumous work Brief Answers to the Big Questions met with Chinese readers on this day. In this book, readers can see that Hawking had been following the latest progress of the scientific community and associating it with the future of human beings. He used a total of 10 chapters to put forward 10 big questions, covering religion, universe, black holes, the earth, artificial intelligence and other disciplines.
Through these problems, people realize that Hawking, as a great physicist, not only made remarkable achievements in the field of science, but also paid special attention to the fate of mankind. Combining with his extensive and profound professional knowledge, he seriously thought about the survival crisis faced by mankind, gave early warning and provided suggestions, which fully embodied social responsibility and noble feelings of Hawking as a world’s top scientist. He played an active role in leading humans’ thought and would be always respected and missed by all people of the world.

It is worth mentioning that in the book Hawking’s views and discussions on other life in the universe and artificial intelligence are almost the same as those of Mr. Hu Jiaqi, a famous Chinese anthropologist. Mr. Hu Jiaqi has studied human issues for more than 40 years. He firmly believes that science and technology are a double-edged sword. If science and technology continue to develop without control, human beings will become extinct. In 2017, he published an article “Hawking Raised Three Views Identical to Mine” and then attracted a lot of attention. The article says that “Stephen Hawking, the world’s most famous physicist, put forward three important opinions on the fate of human beings that aroused strong repercussions all over the world after years when my works and articles on these opinions were published.”
The first point of view is that: in April 2010, Hawking pointed out that there were hundreds of billions of galaxies in the universe, each galaxy had hundreds of millions of stars, so aliens almost certainly existed. We should avoid contact with aliens, and never contact aliens, or human beings may be destroyed. Because the aliens who can come to the earth through long distance between stars, have more advanced science and technology than humans, we can’t fight against them. Hawking’s reasoning and examples are completely consistent with Mr. Hu Jiaqi’s, but 3 years later than his.
The second point of view is that: in December 2014, Hawking pointed out that artificial intelligence technology would eventually generate self-awareness and replace human beings, because the development of technology was faster than the evolution of biology. When artificial intelligence after development is perfect, it will comprehensively surpass human beings and follow the survival law of the strong, which may lead to human extinction. Hawking’s reasoning and examples are basically the same as Hu Jiaqi’s, but seven years later than his.
The third point of view is that: in March 2017, Hawking pointed out when giving an interview to the London Times that if artificial intelligence was not well controlled, it may exterminate human beings. We need to identify such threats as soon as possible and take action before it gets out of control. To do this, we need to form the world government. Hawking’s reasoning and examples are basically consistent with Mr. Hu Jiaqi’s, but 10 years later than his.
Hu Jiaqi is a firm and devout humanist who takes the cause of saving mankind from extinction as his lifelong career. “Publishing this article is not to show off that I’m more amazing than Hawking. Actually, I would like to say that the views of the world’s top scientist are almost the same as mine which I think are related to the life and death of human beings. It’s my life’s pursuit to strive to make the world accept the views and take corresponding actions. I hope to use influence of scientists like Hawking to promote the cause of saving mankind.”
On November 1 this year, Save Human Action Organization (SHAO) was officially established by Mr. Hu Jiaqi. It is an international non-governmental organization registered in the United States. The purpose of the organization is to promote a peaceful awakening movement for all mankind and to make all mankind generally realize that the continued irrational development of science and technology will soon exterminate mankind. Only by achieving the great unity of mankind and using the power of the world regime to firmly limit the development of science and technology, can we save mankind from extinction.
