Reflections of Disability

I was just reading Kay's blog as I do every so often. And I noticed the quote she has in her header image. I don't know if it's a new one or if she's had it there for a while and I never noticed it before but I really liked it.

This is the quote:
Not only do physically disabled people have experiences which are not available to the able-bodied, they are in a better position to transcend cultural mythologies about the body, because they cannot do things the able-bodied feel they must do in order to be happy, 'normal,' and sane....If disabled people were truly heard, an explosion of knowledge of the human body and psyche would take place.

I've often thought this about Stephen Hawking. If he was able bodied would he have been as successful intellectually?
