When Michio Kaku was a teenager living in the Bay Area, he designed an atom-smasher in his garage.

The design earned him a scholarship to Harvard, and Edward Teller, who invented the atomic bomb with some other Berkeley professors, paid for Kaku to study at Berkeley.

Kaku’s ideas are based on the idea of superstrings vibrating in eleven-dimensional hyperspace. Considered as a whole, the time has come for string theory to pass from speculative exercise to received knowledge. There is no opposition to it.

The string theory is built directly on the foundations left by quantum physics, known in part for inventions like GPS systems, cell phones, and space shuttles. Kaku explains, in great detail, how Einstein’s ideas (built with the ideas of many contemporaries, including Lise Meitner, Werner Heisenberg, and Erwin Schrodinger) influenced the wide-scale invention of new technologies.

When will humans invent something engineered by string theory? Or have we already done so?

Kaku describes, in headline-grabbing ways, the implications of the theory, which includes forms of not only any idea, but any idea originated ever, in any possible multiverse, by any being or non-being. That means that zombies are scientifically (and physically) real, as well as angels, dinosaurs (in your living room right now), and every other bizarre thing you can imagine or not imagine. Elvis would be alive today.

Based on Hawking and Kaku’s interpretations, one can posit that right now, many people are listening to (or thinking or dreaming about) “Elvis’ rhythms,” which are wave functions brought to the United States on slave ships.

When you study Schrodinger’s cat, which Kaku calls the “most profound paradox in the history of the universe,” you notice that one of two things is true. Either:

  • A. The physical universe is determined by the act of human observation,


  • B. Things physically exist in an “uncertain” way, between real and imagined, dead and alive, wave and particle, throughout the universe

96% of the physical universe is composed of dark matter and energy, which tells us only that we are 96% unaware of our physical universe as human beings. This is the meaning of Einstein’s “cosmological constant,” the only thing that would balance out his equation-based model of the universe so that it would not collapse on itself. Einstein said that it was a great mistake, but many physicists today think it may have been his great discovery.

If you were holding dark matter in your hand, it would go through your hand, through the earth, and to the exact opposite point on the other side of Earth, because it is the cause of gravity, unaffected by gravity itself and therefore unobserved in our dimension, which is based on the mystery of gravity, the Law of Attraction.

Causation, however, is a mental construct, and quantum entanglement shows that Einstein’s “spooky action at a distance” actually exists: particles communicate, randomly, across the universe at speeds faster than light. That means that all textbooks that say light is the fastest thing in the universe are absolutely wrong.

There are a lot of caveats for string theory speculations that would seem to prevent it from being observable by the unimaginative in the general public anytime soon. Time travel can’t happen (backwards) for a long, long time, for a long list of reasons, theorized by Kaku, Neil DeGrasse Tyson, and Hawking.

However, nobody seems to have disputed Kaku’s claim that dinosaurs are alive, because their wave functions traverse our dwelling spaces. More closely, living dinosaur wave functions are active and may one day be measurable, as will the after-effects of the origin of the universe. Wave functions are emitted by every object that ever existed, and continue infinitely long after the dissolution of the object. It’s kind of like how we can see stars that do not exist anymore because the speed of light is limited.

The San Francisco Bay Area is the home of Silicon Valley partly because it is the birthplace of the contemporary “Human Potential” or “New Age” movements which have seized on the physical Law of Attraction — and thanks to Deepak Chopra, Quantum Entanglement — as concepts on which people may meditate in order to improve their lives.

Kaku sat down for a short conversation with Chopra and, gracefully, neither confirmed nor denied that Chopra was scientifically right. Kaku did the same thing on a BookTV interview when a caller asked him about Chopra’s Quantum Healing. Richard Dawkins and Chopra argue and insult each other over this quantum idea, even though both are biologists, not physicists. The question (never uttered) is, who knows science better? Who has the right to scientific truth? Who has the right to explain science to others?

If the person who knew science best in the world right now were one of the above-mentioned specialists, we would be in a truly terrible universe. But maybe someone is studying physics right now and working in a “lowly” occupation, or not working at all, apparently invisible, unknown, and unrecognized, like the young Einstein in the Geneva patent office. It could be you. Or maybe it is a group of students jumping through test hoop after test hoop, envisioning lifting off into orbit and traveling in space.
