PART 8 of MICHIO KAKU INTERVIEW


Imagine you're in a room and many radio frequencies are in the same room. Your radio is turned into one frequency but you're very comfortable being in a room with many frequencies, right? But you tune into one.

Well these frequencies are now wave functions.

In this room there's the wave function of dinosaurs.
In this room... because they never died 65 million years ago!
Because a cosmic event prevented the extinction of the dinosaurs!

In this room, there's the wave function of aliens, because perhaps aliens decide to colonize the Earth millions of years ago.

In this room, there's the wave function of Alexander the Great, perhaps he came all the way to the Americas instead of being... just conquering most of the old world.

Think about it.
Your mind goes crazy!

This is the multiverse. So, Welcome to the multiverse.

We now believe that perhaps there are infinite number of universes out there.

Most of them probably dead universes, but some of them may be separated from our universe by a single quantum event.

The smallest quantum event is a cosmic ray.

Let's say a cosmic ray goes through Hitler's mother. Hitler's mother has a miscarriage. Hitler is never born. All of a sudden, perhaps 40 or 50 million people didn't have to die and they're living with us today.

Or perhaps a cosmic ray went through Roosevelt's mother, and Roosevelt never roused the American people to oppose the forces of the Axis, and I'm speaking German today and there's a swastika behind me right now.

I mean, one quantum event separates us from these parallel worlds!

Now some people ask me the question, well, Professor, if Nobel laureates are even arguing about this, then the question is: is Elvis Presley still alive in one of these universes?

INTERVIEWER: Many would say yes.

KAKU: Well, believe it or not, there are physicists at oxford university, David Deutsch, for example, who would say, yes, there's a universe where the King is still alive.

INTERVIEWER: Wow, we've got some things to think about... We're blown away, we act like it's such a phenomenon if our dead Aunt Lily talking through a medium to us and you're talking about many different potential...

KAKU: Nobel laureates argue about this question.

This is one of the greatest unresolved questions in all of physics. Physics is fantastic, it's incredibly accurate, but it's based on the cat. And at the present time, there's no consensus on the cat problem.

There are hundreds of physics conferences. My friends attend these conferences. Physicists yell at each other, they scream at each other. Because what is at stake is reality itself. The nature of existence... that is what is at stake.

INTERVIEWER: Professor, thank you so much for taking the time.

KAKU: My pleasure.


NARRATOR: His newest book, Parallel Worlds, focuses on the newest multiverse theories. I also loved his book, Visions, which extrapolates what our lives will look like fifty, a hundred, a thousand, and even more years into the future. Like this interview, his writing is wonderfully entertaining. You can look at a complete section of his work on his website listed beside his name on the menu.

Until next time, thanks for watching.

I've had the chance to hear this guy at seminars, he's fantastic at popularizing science.

He's also in a ton of Science Channel programs such as 2057. I'm pretty sure he was on Coast to Coast as well. I first heard the "retarded cockroach" line back in RoboSapiens.

Anyways, the interesting bit is the probes he described from the type 3 civilization. We already have NASA pictures which show airbrushed objects, some blatantly clear of towers, complex, large factory like structures. What if?

Awesome video!

once again this was an excellent video interview with dr michio kaku. i have no doubt in his theories about the different types of civilization and i also think that he could be the new 'einstein' when it comes to the new understanding of modern physics. most of what he said was not to far beyond possibility and also the time frame he gave for an evolving type 0 civilization like us was really accurate imo. i hope to see more of his ideas and scenarios in future and right now i'm actually thinking about the acquistion of some of his books which can be also found on his website! Dr Michio Kaku - a great physicist in our modern time!

Absolutely recommended for anyone.

Schroedingers cat still gets me anytime i think about it....choosing between "god" and "everything you do or don't creates a universe"...tough choice

Thanks for the excellent video chupa. I have expanded my knowledge today. The plans NASA, DARPA and countless others may bring the type one civilization much sooner within the next 20 years. Please give this report a good read.

www.wtec.org...

It is not fake, these are the people with the power and the big bucks that are shooting for sci-fi goals and are reaching them ever quickly. Type one is not 100 years away but less than 20.

Great interview, thanks for posting.

I have one of his books, Hyperspace, but I regretfully say I've never read it. I think it's time to pull it off the shelf and give it a read.

Would it be appropriate to post links of all Michio Kaku interviews in this thread or can we open a new thread to catalog his videos?

I thought that by "new Einstein", we meant the new great world-changing scientist. Didn't know he or she HAD to be a physicist. In that case, David Bohm was the new Einstein until he died in 92. My point was that, though he's a great popularizer, Michio Kaku has not put out a theory that equals relativity in importance. He is an amazing interpreter of science; he's essential for showing us the implications of science to human civilization.

Once accepted by the establishment, Sheldrake's theory of morphic fields and morphic resonance will prove as transformative as relativity was. That was my point. Though Sheldrake is a biologist, his theories are blurring the line between physics and biology in a big way.

Bah..Pseudo Science and hypothetical at best, you can't compare us to Type 1, 2, & 3 Civilizations without knowing at least one. You guys do realize Type 1 = NWO, that is what Kaku is proposes lol. I'm not for the NWO so I guess that makes me a terrorist? This is Kaku BS.

Here's a theory, we can move on to a Type I civilization without the NWO bs attached to it. Anyway, this is mostly based on the kardashev scale.

Really great watch! I've seen this guy before on a "string theory" documentary on the discovery channel. Really, very smart individual.. and the things he is talking about is agreed upon by thousands of the worlds most intelligent physisists.

What he was talking about in the end seems to destroy the theory of time travel being possible. The smallest cosmic event, a cosmic array, can change the world and I believe time travel would be considered a cosmic event? (I'm not as smart as him.)

Great watch none-the-less, and I wish NASA great success with those satellites around the sun b/c they cant even get thier space station working right. (I think they are still running windows 95)

Okay, first off everyone is well aware that Dr Kaku's references to the Kardashev scale are based on his beliefs and assumptions.


Researcher Michio Kaku quotes Dyson as calculating that Earth will achieve a Type I civilization around the year 2200. [12] This estimate is based on a simple extrapolation of the current development rate of Earth's energy budget.


It's speculation and theory, like all science (the uncertainty principle ensures that). To call it BS, NWO, Pseudo Science is, well BS in itself.

Plus to say a global culture/society is 'NWO' in the sense of evil people ruling us all is a little pessimistic. I agree there will be a New World Order, but I would put it to you that it will be a democratic one, run by the people for the people. As I've said in another post:

There are of course those who fear change, who shout of NWO's and conspiracies of control. As long as the system has local, regional and national assemblies of elected representatives, how can Unions be a bad thing? I've always thought that humanity can't progress unless we unite.

We the people, have to always protect our democratic rights, if we get lazy, people will take them from us.

P. Richard-



From his own Quantum Physics analysis, he concludes that there are dimensions that are above this, the material plane, and that the ultimate goal is to become a God who can traverse the higher dimensions and be able to completely control one's planetary atmosphere and environment.


If you could leave this universe why would you care about altering a planet's atmosphere? Actually he said we are a Type 0 civilization transitioning to a Type 1. A Type 1 civilization would be able to better control the atmosphere and environment of the planet. A Type 3 would be the spacetime tearing God.



Alas...if Michio only knew the importance of using HCR, and performed it daily until his death, he would find himself reaching those goals far sooner than the time-frame he anticipates.


HCR? You mean the House Concurrent Resolution in Missouri where the legislature is trying to turn the place into a Christian Theocracy? Hmm, so all that work, research, discussions, earning his PhD was all for not? He could have stayed home and drank a cold one and said a few prayers and he would have been way a.!

Sounds about right... or not.



Nonetheless, he is quite a visionary


I fail to see how he is a visionary? Sounds like he wasted his time on all this science junk. A few prayers will get you just as far as an entire species working together and gathering knowledge for millennia.


XPhiles-



You guys do realize Type 1 = NWO, that is what Kaku is proposes lol. I'm not for the NWO so I guess that makes me a terrorist? This is Kaku BS.


I think your missing the point. Kaku never states for certain what he personally "likes or dislikes." He was making a logical and scientific observation.

Imagine if you could go back in time to colonial times. And that you took an airplane with you. I bet many people would have been afraid of such a (flying) machine. But that's just the point. The folks of that age didn't "aim" for the construction of cars or planes. They aimed for progress. And by aiming for progress eventually cars and planes just happened.

This is what Kaku is saying... there is no going back. There is no staying the same. It is human nature to gravite towards newer and better ideas. Progress. Kaku pointed to "terrorists" as one example (albeit an extreme one) of folks who resist change. Change is part of life. Look at yourself in the mirror every 10 years and you'll see change.

Being able to venture outside the Universe is a nice idea but eventually everyone wants to have a safe, stable, and environmentally friendly planet to live on.

Yeah...that must be it




Here's a little secret...I'm not a Christian.

That might make you feel better, but that is not what I was referring to. A number of people here got it. Keep trying.

Many consider him a visionary. Which is not to imply that I agree with everything he espouses. Many do not.

Prayer alone has never been enough to actually create something and science is inherently limited because no instrument can ever be constructed that can actually create matter. A definite problem in physics. How do you create something that cannot be created with physically based technology? Try it sometime.

What you state and what everyone else states here is a matter of opinion. To say that one is "making a logical and scientific observation" is in itself just an opinion.

Nothing "just happened." It is the struggle of the few which improves the lives of the many. That has always been the case.

Well, I don't know about you, but for me that will likely occur in less than ten years. At least in regard to the progressive changes that I and others are a part of.

FANTASTIC!

Kaku is the MAN. We need more abstract, creative thinkers like him to forward science past its current boundaries IMHO. What a fascinating individual this guy is.


Flagged.

Science has no boundaries. I don't know where you're getting that from. What you see in your text books aren't new science but fairly old pieces of theory. The issue is bringing the new and improved science into a setting where it can easily be taught to the general audience.

What I'm saying:

There are far more creative scientists out there who are mainstream to the crowd that's interested in the field of that scientist.

I really liked this interview. Instead of the wannabe "quantum physcists" explaining the science as you create your own reality and if you wish and imagine it then it will become true :coughs: What the Bleepdo we know, The Secret:coughs:, he mixes modern quantum thought to theories and a tiny bit of philosophy.

The Multiverse explanation really got to me, I've been wondering what happened when we died, I don't believe in heaven, hell, reincarnation, etc. What if we just died in this world yet are still existing in other worlds? Well thinking too much about these things makes me depressed

Yes that what would call it, NWO Pseudo Science.

Well, I would bet we never make it to Type 1, I quote Einstein, "I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.” You see Einstein was for a NWO concept as well, he wanted the world to do away with nuclear weapons and prepare our future for a NWO. And here we have Kaku resuming that same ideal again, but flat out says "these people who don't want this transition are the terrorist." What he's really saying is, anyone who is not for or part of the NWO is a terrorist.

9/11 has set the transition stage, however the general public has caught on. A Type 1 will never happen in a NWO way, unless your into population reduction. Sure change is a part of life, but you can not control how people feel about it. You can't brainwash us all... I guess those who are not sheep are terrorist?

XPhiles, a new world order, or world government is not a bad thing at all. If it happens the way some conspiracy theorists say it would, and it is controlled by crazed maniacs who want control, then yeah it would be bad. But having a world government, a joint effortto progress further, no wars over regions and countries and economics because we are one world is not a bad thing. We are far from it and it is impossible right now, but later in the future a joining of ideas so we can become EARTH and not just the US, Britain, India, China, etc. etc. would be a good thing.
