I know that this post differs from the usual theme of the site as it’s not explicitly video game, TV or movie related. Rather, it’s a series of videos featuring Harvard-educated physics theorist talking about all sorts of revolutionary scientific happenings, most of which you probably didn’t even know existed.
This may sound boring, and to some it may be, but if you like science fiction as I do, you should be really interested in what Kaku has to say about aliens, time travel, teleportation, invisibility, artificial intelligence, black holes and our universe and perceptions of reality in general.
I spent the better part of the afternoon watching these videos, and by the end, I felt like A) I really should have studied more in school and B) I’m a very small piece of a massive universe (or multiverse as the case may be). I think if you watch a few, you’ll be hooked for the rest like I was, and due to Kaku’s plain spoken explanations, you’ll be able to grasp concepts that have taken geniuses centuries to unearth and really feel like you’ve learned some truly cool shit.
