Dr. Michio Kaku is a theoretical physicist and the author of international best-selling books such as Beyond Einstein, Hyperspace and Visions. He is also an acclaimed public speaker, renowned futurist and popularizer of science.
As co-founder of String Field Theory, Dr. Kaku carries on Einstein’s quest to unite the four fundamental forces of nature – gravitation, electromagnetism, strong nuclear force, weak nuclear force—together into a single grand unified theory of everything.
Here are some of my favourite quotes by Dr. Kaku – a spiritual scientist:
“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.”
“…the laws of physics, carefully constructed after thousands of years of experimentation, are nothing but the laws of harmony one can write down for strings and membranes. The laws of chemistry are the melodies that one can play on these strings. the universe is a symphony of strings. And the “Mind of God,” which Einstein wrote eloquently about, is cosmic music resonating throughout hyperspace.”
“The most complex object in the known universe: brain, only uses 20 watts of power. It would require a nuclear power plant to energize a computer the size of a city block to mimic your brain, and your brain does it with just 20 watts. So if someone calls you a dim bulb, that’s a compliment.”
“The idea that excites me the most concerns the two greatest puzzles in science: the origin of the universe, and the origin of consciousness. The origin of the universe is what I do for a living, working on string theory. But I am also fascinated by consciousness.”
“To me it is clear that we exist in a plan which is governed by rules that were created, shaped by a universal intelligence and not by chance.”
“For those who believe, no explanation is necessary; for those who do not believe, no explanation will suffice.”
