Okay, Most know Michio Kaku's 3 Type's of Alien Civilizations. Described as follows:
Kaku defines a Type 1 civilization as one that is truly a planetary society, who has mastered all forms of terrestrial energy. Their energy output is
much greater than ours. It would take at least 3,200 years to reach Type 2.
A Type 2 civilization is a civilization who have an energy output of a small star. They would be so advanced that they could build a sphere around
their planet to maximize their energy output.
A Type 3 civilization is so advanced that they have begun colonizing other star systems. Their energy output is massive compared to ours. A
civilization this advanced would be able to bend space and time at will. They would probably be capable of interdimensional travel and even time
Now, in 2007 when asked what type we are, he responded:
Well, we are Type 0. We still get our energy from dead plants. Pretty pathetic, if you ask me. I could only imagine what an advanced alien
civilizations thinks of us. With our racism, wars, and class struggles we will be luck if we ever get to a Type 1. At the current rate, in my opinion
the human race is Headed Toward Extinction.
Interesting, Hear that, headed for Extinction and'll be lucky to reach Type 1. Yet, just a year and a half after declaring we are headed for
extinction he say's we are but 100 years from becoming a Type 1 Civilization.
Now, remember a Type 1 civilization means "mastering terrestrial energy"
Why would such an intelligent man have such a rash, unfounded change of heart?
He wouldn't, unless he knew something we didn't.
What he knows?
No clue, however, I found it also interesting that after achieving all of his credentials he was drafted into the US Army. What he did for the Army is
unknown, however he was quoted as disliking "Hiding in foxholes for the US Army". But his Bio says the war ended before he got out of Basic
Training, so why would be hiding in foxholes and why would an accredited scientist who co-founded the String Theory be drafted as anything other than
No answers for you Just Fact's and Question's. I'd love to hear how other members feel about him.
