Hyperspace: A Scientific Odyssey Through Parallel Universes, Time Warps, and the 10th Dimension

4 stars out of 5

  Hyperspace: A Scientific Odyssey Through Parallel Universes, Time Warps, and the 10th Dimension  This book, as the name might imply, discusses different dimensions such as the 10th and the 26th dimension. Michio Kaku refers to another book called “Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions” in order to coherently explain why higher dimensions can simplify the laws of physics rather than complicating them. 

Pro: This book is great for people who want to learn more about higher dimensions and how it might affect future civilizations as we go from what we currently are a Type 0 civilization to what we potentially could be which would be a Type III civilization.

Con: Unfortunately, a lot of what he talks about cannot be proven in the lab. We simply do not have the technology or know how to show experimental evidence for higher dimensions. The author knows this but is still rather fascinated by the idea that there might be.

The Future of the Mind

4 stars out of 5

download (1)  Michio Kaku is a great author. I have many of his books. This book dives into consciousness and the evolving brain. It also describes Drake’s equation, talks about telepathy and telekinesis, and discusses Einstein’s brain, and much more. If you love these topics, then, you will enjoy this easy to read book.

Con: Although, he turns “complicated scientific theories and turns them into readable tales”, some people may not get a lot out of the book if they already know a thing or two about the mind, physics, or the future.
