Michio Kaku Quotes
- “It is often stated that of all the theories proposed in this century, the silliest is quantum theory. In fact, some say that the only thing that quantum theory has going for it is that it is unquestionably correct.”
- “…the “Mind of God,” which Einstein wrote eloquently about, is cosmic music resonating throughout hyperspace.”
- “Some people seek meaning in life through personal gain, through personal relationship, or through personal experiences. However, it seems to me that being blessed with the intellect to divine the ultimate secrets of nature gives meaning enough to life.”

Michio Kaku God
Michio Kaku, co-founderof string field theory and physicist, made waves last year— or at least appeared — when it was reported that he had proved God’s existence. The Geophilosophical Association of Anthropological and Cultural Studies quoted Kaku as saying, “I have concluded that we are in a world made up of rules created by intelligence. It is clear to me that we are in a plan governed by rules created by universal intelligence and not by chance.”
Reacting to that public comment, Kaku said: “This is one of the disadvantages of being in a public sphere: sometimes you are incorrectly quoted. My own point of view is that you can not prove or disprove God’s existence.”
Hyperspace Michio Kaku
Hyperspace: A Scientific Odyssey Through Parallel Universes, Time Warps, and the 10th Dimension (1994, ISBN 0-19-286189-1) is a book written by New York City College theoretical physicist Michio Kaku. It focuses on higher-dimensional studies by Kaku called hyperspace. The book’s recurring theme is that all four universe forces (strong force, weak force, electromagnetism, and gravity) become more coherent and in higher dimensions their description is simpler.
Michio Kaku Parallel Worlds
Parallel Worlds: A Journey Through Creation, Higher Dimensions, and the Future of the Cosmos is a popular science book by Michio Kaku first published in 2004.
Michio Kaku String Theory | Michio Kaku Theories
String field theory (SFT) is a string theory formalism in which relativistic string dynamics are reformulated in the quantum field theory language. This is accomplished by finding a collection of vertices for joining and splitting strings as well as string propagators at the level of perturbation theory, which give a Feynman diagram-like expansion for string scattering amplitudes. This expansion is encoded in most string field theories by a classical action found by quantizing the free string second and adding terms of interaction.
As is usually the case in second quantization, a wave function in the original theory gives a classical field configuration of the second-quantized theory. In the case of string field theory, this implies that an element of the free string Fock space gives a classical configuration, usually called the string field.
Michio Kaku Movies & TV Shows
Kaku has appeared in many forms of media and on many programs and networks, including Good Morning America, The Screen Savers, Larry King Live, 60 Minutes, Imus In The Morning, Nightline, 20/20, Naked Science, CNN, ABC News, CBS News, NBC News, Al Jazeera English, Fox News Channel, The History Channel, Conan, The Science Channel, The Discovery Channel, TLC, Countdown with Keith Olbermann, The Colbert Report, The Art Bell Show and its successor, Coast to Coast AM, BBC World News America, The Covino & Rich Show, Head Rush, Late Show with David Letterman, and Real Time with Bill Maher.
Michio Kaku Physics Of The Future
Future Physics: How Science Will Shape Human Destiny and Our Daily Lives By the Year 2100 is a book published in 2011 by the theoretical physicist Michio Kaku, author of Hyperspace and Physics of the Impossible. Kaku speculates in it over the next 100 years about possible future technological development. He interviews notable scientists on their research fields and outlines his vision of future developments in medicine, computing, artificial intelligence, nanotechnology, and energy production. The book spent five weeks on the New York Times Bestseller List.
Michio Kaku Physics Of The Impossible
Impossible Physics: A Scientific Exploration Into the World of Phasers, Force Fields, Teleportation, and Time Travel is a book written by theoretical physicist Michio Kaku. Kaku uses speculative technology discussion to introduce the reader to basic physics topics. The invisibility topic becomes a discussion about why the speed of light in water is slower than in vacuum, that electromagnetism is similar to ripples in a pond, and Kaku discusses newly developed composite materials.
Michio Kaku Education
Kaku attended Cubberley High School in Palo Alto. While attending Cubberley High School in Palo Alto, Kaku assembled a particle accelerator in his parents’ garage for a science fair project. Kaku graduated summa cum laude from Harvard University in 1968 and was first in his physics class. He attended the Berkeley Radiation Laboratory at the University of California, Berkeley, and received a Ph.D. in 1972, and that same year held a lectureship at Princeton University.
