Dr. Michio Kaku's latest book, Parallel Worlds, reveals what today's trailblazing cosmologists know about the nature of the universe, including its age (13.7 billion years), its composition (73 percent 'dark energy'), and perhaps even its eventual death. Dr. Kaku also offers a glimpse into the future trillions of years from now, when the survival of intelligent life might well depend upon its ability to migrate to another, more hospitable universe or to travel back to a warmer, safer time.
Dr Kaku is on tour promoting his new book. For those who think we have a clue to the fundamental nature of the universe, this one should kick us right in the fundament.

I Blog BooksDr. Michio Kaku's latest book, Parallel Worlds...

I have heard Dr. Kaku speak of his theories, and he may be thinking so far into the ozone that his concepts cannot be communicated with any sense to the layperson.

The alternative is that he really believes in the invasion of Earth by aliens from farther up the evolutionary and entropic curve.

This could be the answer to Fermi's paradox - in our local miniverse - advanced civilizations have come up with the physics to do this sooner rather than later. We're next.
