Dr Michio Kaku will be making his first trip down to Australia for a series of public lectures this June:
Thursday June 5th at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre.
Friday June 6th at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre.
Saturday June 7th at Sydney Town Hall.
Think Inc is bringing Michio Kaku down under to promote rational thought and discussion.
Public discussions will run for 90 minutes with a 60 minute free-side chat followed up by another 30 minutes of public Q & A.
Kaku is a professor of theoretical physics at the City University of New York. He is well known for his enthusiasm in bringing science to the public sphere.
As a co-founder of String Field Theory, Michio Kaku raises the possibility that our universe may be just one bubble floating in a sea of other bubble universes in a 'multiverse'.
String Theory suggests that parallel universes may exist and that wormholes (which might lie in the centre of black holes which have been observed at the centre of galaxies) may be portals to these other universes.
But if we were to ever pass through a wormhole, we would still have to master the physics of eleven spatial dimensions (as String Theory suggests) in order to do it.
We currently live in a 3 Dimensional world where you can go up and down, side to side, and forward/backward. But String Theory suggests that there are more 'directions' out there in Hyperspace that we cannot observe.
It sounds very bizarre but String Theory suggests that this could be a serious possibility.To learn more on this, click here.
But Michio Kaku says that we are a long way off from mastering the abilities and knowledge to travel through hyperspace.
He says, "We're at a precipice; we are experiencing the birth pangs of a 'Type 1 Civilisation'. And there's no guarantee that we'll make it."
The video below will explain what he means by a 'Type 1 Civilisation' and how he defines other types of civilizations:
String Theory also combines the theory of general relativity (how gravity works in our universe) with quantum mechanics (explaining the way matter behaves and how it interacts with energy in the form of atoms and particles). If you want to read more on this, feel free to click here.
Michio Kaku's latest book 'The Future of The Mind' has also been released where the secrets of the brain are being unraveled by scientists. Learn how it is possible to record memories, videotape dreams, control minds, and use telekinesis. In fact, these things already exist and are being practiced in laboratories
It's rare to be sitting in the same room with one of the most terrific thinkers of our time so come along and listen in to some of the most revolutionary ideas of the physical world.
