I never tire of listening to this man.  First found out about him 3 years ago on you tube when searching for some vid on worm holes and Michio showed up. For those interested in  Space travel, time travel, parallel worlds, black holes worm holes you name it Kaku will most likely know about it.  According to physicists parallel universes could exist where there is another copy of ourselves living out a different life on another earth in another universe eg: I missed the bus to an important event in my life so lost that opportunity to go down that path cause someone else grab it, but in another universe I caught the bus...  Even the thought of that blows me away. Though no way to prove it yet just all theories.

Anyway I have a week of work so guess what I'm doing Youtubing Kaku and trying to find out if there are any full documentaries on him speaking.

Here's one of him on Parallel universes

Yes, for me also a pleasure watching or reading the books of a person with such an enthusiatic and open minded view, especially that of the future.

I'm quite interested in theoretical physics, quantum physics, astronomy, and things of that nature so I've read a couple of his books. He is the co-founder of string theory so you can definitely say he knows his stuff.

I've read a few books on this kind of topic by different authors and what I like most about him is his ability to explain complex theories and concepts in a way that everyone can understand.

Hmm ... and in black holes you caught the bus backwards didn't you? (time happens in reverse in those chambers right) ... wait a minute ... do black holes exist? i do admire physicists for their abilities but theoreorising (?spell check) on things that are not humanly possible to prove or disprove (or is it?!) must make some miserable to the point of ... errr ... jumping into black holes!

Now just think for a moment what you just said.  You disagree with the parallel theory but in another parallel universe on another earth that same you just different dimension would of been in Geekzone & said it differently. My head hurts just thinking about the different possibilities of a parellel universes.
