Type 0 civilization to Type 1 Civilization: Humanity's Future - Michio Kaku



  • Our most advanced robot has a collective IQ of a retarded cockroach, in 40 to 50 years we might be able to create a robot as smart as a monkey. By 2112 we might have a robot as smart as an average human.

  • قصیر ندیم بھائی .. مچی کاکو کی چولوں کا کوئی جواب نہیں .. ایسے ایسے مفروضے بناتا ہے -- کہ عام بندا بھی بنا سکتا ہے .. وقت میں سفر کرنے کو پرریل یونیورس سے ملا دیا . ٹائم ٹریول میں کچھ مسائل ہیں -- مثال کے طور میں وقت سفر کرتا ہوں -- اور اپنے باپ کے وقت پونچ جاتا ہوں جب وہ جوان تھا جب اس کی شددی نہیں ہوئی --میں اس کو قتل کر دیتا ہوں --- تو میں بھی ختم ہو جاؤں گا -- لیکن مچی کاکو کہتا ہے کہ پرلیل یونیورس نے اس کانسپٹ کو حل کر دیا .. یعنی اپ نے کسی اور یونیورس میں اپنے باپ کو ختم کیا -- یہ سپر تہذیبوں والی بات سے وقت میں سفر والی بات یاد ا گئی -- یعنی کوئی ایسی سپر تہذیب ہے جو ہم سے بہت پہلے وجود میں آیی ہو اور اس کے پاس کوئی بہت سپر ٹائم مشین ہو تو سے سپر ٹائم مشین سے ہم فرعون کو دیکھ سکتے ہیں -- ورنہ ہم نہیں جا سکتے کبی -- حضرت مچی کاکو -- یہ عقیدے تب اتے ہیں ذہن میں جب انسان خدا سے دور ہو جاے -- اور وہ سمجے کے شائد ہماری تخلیق حادثہ ہے

    مچی کاکو کہتا ہے ہماری تہذیب سفر میں ہیں ..یہ جب سفر سے ٹائپ ون میں جاتے گی تو بہت تیل لگے گا اس کو -- ٹائپ فور تہذیب ساری کہکشاں کے وسائل کھاتی ہے



  • Dr Michio Kaku is simply presenting the best ideas of around 300 top notch scientists.

    The idea of type 0 to 3 civilizations was first presented by two Russian scientists.They were focused on our use of energy sources.We are presently going through transition from 0 civilization to type 1.One has to be really blind not to notice it.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kardashev_scale

    Only a few centuries ago who could have imagined telephones, automobile, aeroplanes and internet.

    The comments by the likes of "Fear" make may think Dr Kaku's apprehensions regarding terrorists to hold us back are based on reality.

    The above video has been crudely edited.

    Here is another video of a thoght provoking talk by Michio Kaku..

  • 'By 2112 we might have a robot as smart as an average human.'

    We will all be dead by that time. As Dr. Siddiqui of University of Colarado in his TV series Islam and Science once said:

    "Human being life span is short and he/she is not going to live to wait for Scientific discoveries. For example the Scientists were talking "utter non-sense" about the surface of the moon several decades ago and most theories were drasticaly revised recently. Therefore, I am not going to wait for riddles of science to invent/discover something new and my best bet is to believe in the Divine revelations and prepare myselff for the next life".

    "At least 17 billion Earth-size planets are in Milky Way, new estimate says."

    And we have billions of galaxies like Milky Way. Can Scientists fathom these massive cosmic worlds out there? Man has not even reached the nearest star-Alpha Centuari which is several light years away. Even if you try to travel to it with the most modern space ship it will take millions of years just to reach it.

    Just say Allahu Akbar Subhan Allah



  • When the first set of mass produced helicopters came as mode of transportation in 1944, engineers of that time bragged that the era of automobile was over. Soon everyone would have a mini-copter parked outside their home. Opinion makers and journalists wrote fascinating stories about the ubiquity and usefulness of this new invention.

    It has been about 70 year since the prediction of obsolescence of a car but we are still stuck in traffic jams and gas lines. Other than long haul routes, there has been no major change in the air transportation since the 1960s. As a matter of fact, the services are going down day by day. In Arizona USA, a cryogenic lab has been freezing human heads as a fulfilment of living wills of rich people. So that these head could one day be transplanted to future bodies or some structures and these wealthy dead could relive civilization 1 & 2. What a fantasy.



  • "At least 17 billion Earth-size planets are in Milky Way, new estimate says."


    And there are hundreds of billions of galaxies like our Milky Way.I wonder how many planets have intelligent life with their own gods, prophets and religions.

    It is too bad they haven't yet figured out which galaxy is honoured with the so called "Throne of God".



  • When the telephone was first invented, there were people who opposed the idea claiming we will forget how to talk to real people.

    Google already has a driverless car and cars that can fly are also becoming a reality.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Google_driverless_car

    I'm sure some of the ideas speculated by Dr Michio Kaku will never materialize but lot of them will become a reality.

    They have already succeeded in growing some human organs like bladder and larynx and are very close to growing a liver from human cells.

    The advancement being made just in medical field is mind-blowing.



  • Fear,

    Michio Kaku is a pioneer of string theory which has many critics with in the scientific community I.e. Lawrence Krauss etc. I have no opinion on string theory as my knowledge of basic physics is very limited (high school level) let alone astro physics, quantum mechanics etc. You don't have to agree to his string theory but that doesn't mean Michio Kaku is an incoherent bum. I am more interested in what Michio said about the future of humanity. It doesn't seem that far fetched considering how radically the world has changed over the last century.

    Abdul sb,

    What do you think the odds are of intelligent living beings inhibiting one of those planets in our galaxy? Please reply in the light of Quran, sunnah and Hadith as you always do :)



  • Qaiser,

    The opening chapter in Quran says Alahumdulillahi Rabb al Alameen. Alameen is plural of worlds. That itself is indication of infinite worlds and infinte beings out there.

    The Holy Quran tells us that there is intelligent life in outer space, where Allah (Praise to Him) is also worshipped and glorified.

    In Chapter 30, Verse 26, Allah (Praise to Him) says:

    To Him belongs whom are in the heavens and the Earth, all are devoutly obedient to Him.

    وَلَهُ ۥ مَن فِى ٱلسَّمَـٰوَٲتِ وَٱلأرۡضِ‌ۖ ڪُلٌّ۬ لَّهُ ۥ قَـٰنِتُونَ

    In Chapter 3, Verse 83, Allah (Praise to Him) also tells us about life in outer space saying:

    Do they want other than the Religion of Allah? While (all) who are in the heavens and the Earth have willingly, or unwillingly, submitted to Him (as Muslims do), and to Him shall they be returned.

    أَفَغَيۡرَ دِينِ ٱللَّهِ يَبۡغُونَ وَلَهُ ۥۤ أَسۡلَمَ مَن فِى ٱلسَّمَـٰوَٲتِ وَٱلأرۡضِ طَوۡعً۬ا وَڪَرۡهً۬ا وَإِلَيۡهِ يُرۡجَعُونَ

    In Chapter 19, Verse 93-95, Allah (Praise to Him) also says:

    There is none in the heavens and the Earth but comes (on the Day of Judgment) to the Beneficent (Allah) as a (helpless) slave.

    He does take an account of them, and has counted them exactly.

    And all of them (are coming to Him) on the Day of Resurrection individually (alone) (Maryam, 19: 92-95).

    إِن كُلُّ مَن فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ إِلَّا آتِي الرَّحْمَـٰنِ عَبْدًا

    لَّقَدْ أَحْصَاهُمْ وَعَدَّهُمْ عَدًّا

    وَكُلُّهُمْ آتِيهِ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ فَرْدًا (مريم ، 19: 93-95).

    In Chapter 24, Verse 41, Allah (Praise to Him) also says:

    Do not you see that Allah is praised by whoever in the heavens and the Earth, and (that) the birds are flying in lines? Each (category of creatures) knows its own prayer and praise. And Allah knows that they do.

    أَلَمۡ تَرَ أَنَّ ٱللَّهَ يُسَبِّحُ لَهُ ۥ مَن فِى ٱلسَّمَـٰوَٲتِ وَٱلأًرۡضِ وَٱلطَّيۡرُ صَـٰٓفَّـٰتٍ۬‌ۖ كُلٌّ۬ قَدۡ عَلِمَ صلاتَهُ ۥ وَتَسۡبِيحَهُ ۥ‌ۗ وَٱللَّهُ عَلِيمُۢ بِمَا يَفۡعَلُونَ



  • Most of religions speculate regarding other worlds or even universes.

    Long before Abrahamic religion, Hinduism talked about the concept of Multiverses.

    Here are some excerpts from Hindu Scriptures...

    Every universe is covered by seven layers — earth, water, fire, air, sky, the total energy and false ego — each ten times greater than the previous one. There are innumerable universes besides this one, and although they are unlimitedly large, they move about like atoms in You. Therefore You are called unlimited (Bhagavata Purana 6.16.37)

    Lord Śiva said: "My dear son, I, Lord Brahmā and the other devas, who move within this universe under the misconception of our greatness, cannot exhibit any power to compete with the Supreme Personality of Godhead, for innumerable universes and their inhabitants come into existence and are annihilated by the simple direction of the Lord" (Bhagavata Purana 9.4.56)

    After separating the different universes, the gigantic universal form of the Lord, which came out of the causal ocean, the place of appearance for the first puruṣa-avatāra, entered into each of the separate universes, desiring to lie on the created transcendental water (Bhagavata Purana 2.10.10)

    The number of universes seems to be uncountable according to the Puranic literature:

    Even though over a period of time I might count all the atoms of the universe, I could not count all of My opulences which I manifest within innumerable universes (Bhagavata Purana 11.16.39)

    Analogies to describe multiple universes also exist in the Puranic literature:

    What am I, a small creature measuring seven spans of my own hand? I am enclosed in a potlike universe composed of material nature, the total material energy, false ego, ether, air, water and earth. And what is Your glory? Unlimited universes pass through the pores of Your body just as particles of dust pass through the openings of a screened window (Bhagavata Purana 10.14.11)

    Because You are unlimited, neither the lords of heaven nor even You Yourself can ever reach the end of Your glories. The countless universes, each enveloped in its shell, are compelled by the wheel of time to wander within You, like particles of dust blowing about in the sky. The śrutis, following their method of eliminating everything separate from the Supreme, become successful by revealing You as their final conclusion (Bhagavata Purana 10.87.41)

    The layers or elements covering the universes are each ten times thicker than the one before, and all the universes clustered together appear like atoms in a huge combination (Bhagavata Purana 3.11.41)

    The concept of parallel universes appears in the Brahma Vaivarta Purana:

    And who will search through the wide infinities of space to count the universes side by side, each containing its Brahma, its Vishnu, its Shiva? Who can count the Indras in them all--those Indras side by side, who reign at once in all the innumerable worlds; those others who passed away before them; or even the Indras who succeed each other in any given line, ascending to godly kingship, one by one, and, one by one, passing away? (Brahma Vaivarta Purana)



  • Dear Qaiser Nadeem and Dear Ziam -- Let us begin the ritual of reality

    :) :) :)

    جب انسان حقیقت سے بہت زیادہ دور اور مشینون اور سائنس کا بہت زیادہ اس پہ اثر ہو جاتا ہے تو وہ مچی کاکو بن جاتا ہے - اور پھر اس کے ذہن میں اس کی تھیوری کے مطلق خیالات اتے ہیں - میں یہ نہیں کہ رہا کہ مچی کاکو چول انسان ہے . مچی کاکو اصل میں تھیوریٹیکل طبیعات دان ہے - تھیوریز کی بیس خیالات بناتا ہے - وہ ایکسپیریمنٹل طبیعات دان نہیں ہے - یعنی اس کی باتیں تھیوری پر ہوتی ہیں نہ کہ تجربے کی بنیاد پر یا مشدے -- اور اکثر بہت بڑی چول مارتا ہے


    ٹائپ زیرو سے جب کوئی تہذیب ٹائپ ؤن میں جاتی ہے تو اس کو بہت وسائل چاہے ہوتے ہیں -- اور مچی کاکو کے بقول یہ واقعہ اگلے پچاس تک ہو جاے گا -- ابی دنیا سیدھی نہیں ہوئی اور یہ باتیں کیسی کر رہا ہے -- ٹائپ ؤن تہذیب اپنے پلانٹ یا سیارے کے سارے وسائل استعمال کرتی ہے -- ابھی اپ سوچیں کہ زمین پر امریکا نے انت ڈالی ہوئی ہے ---سارے وسائل اپنے قابو میں کر رہا ہے -- اور مچی کاکو لوگوں کو بقوف بنا رہا ہے -- اور دنیا میں ایسی جگہیں جہاں ابھی انسان پونچا ہی نہیں


    کیا میں غلط کہ رہا ہوں --- اور بقول مچی کاکو کے ٹائپ ؤن تہذیب ملٹی کلچر ہے یعنی جب دنیا ٹائپ زیرو سے ٹائپ ؤن میں جائے گی تو کچھ لوگ اس واقعہ کی مخالفت کریں گے -- جن کو وہ دہشت گرد کہ رہا ہے - یہ مسلمان دہشت گرد نہیں ہیں بلکے وہ لوگ جو ٹائپ زیرو سے ٹائپ ؤن میں نہیں جانا چاہتے -- اور اپنے کلچر سے پیار کرتے ہیں ---

    ایک چھوٹا سے شعر مچی کاکو کی چولوں کے اپر

    ہم کو معلوم ہے مچی کاکو کی حقیقت

    دل کو خوش رکھنے کے لئے یہ خیال اچھا ہے

    آج سائنس کا دور ہے لیکن عقیدے ووہی پرانے ہیں -- کہ زمین کسی بہت بڑی گاۓ کے سر پر ہے --

    اگر مچی کاکو کے حساب سے دیکھا جاے تو سب سے پہلے امریکا اس ٹرانزیشن یا واقعہ کی مخالفت کرے گا-- کیوں کہ طاقت میں اس وقت وہ ہے ..-- اور مچی کاکو کا دہشت گرد ہو گا -- یا فر ٹائپ ؤن میں جس کی حکمرانی ہو گی وہ خود امریکا ہو گا---اور ساری ملٹی کلچررل والی کہانی جھوٹ ہے -- یعنی امریکا کا کلچر چلے گا -- جس کی طاقت اس کی تفسیر ... -- اور ساری ٹائپ ؤن کا ستیا ناس کر دے گا

    :):):)

    A hell of way to end michi kaku imaginary world...



  • Zia,

    Forget Hinduism. The teachings of Bhagwat Geeta may have been true but were adulterated eons ago. Christianity was latest in its adulteration phase due to ravages of time and nations ands hence the advent of Divine revelation in Quran for mankind that was incidentally confirmed in its very text that Creator has taken upon himself to safeguard it in every word and comma and fullstop. The Quran in Topkapi museum written 1400 years ago is exactly same as a 2013 print. This is the living miracle of Quran for mankind's guidance.

    Let us therefore focus on 2 latest monotheistic religions and read Maurice Buccaile book, Bible , Quran and Science and after his vivid description of historical and cosmic events came to conclusion about the authenticity of Quran and embraced Islam.

  • Fear,

    To me it seems like you are concentrating a bit too much on the accuracy of Michio Kaku's speculation cum predictions about future and I am not interested in those i.e. whether we create a human like robot in 100 or 500 years or how long it will take for us to become type one civilization etc.

    I am sure that not every country, culture, ethnicity etc will enter type 1 civilization all at once rather it will be a gradual process, starting from group and than spreading to others. There will definitely be a lot of resistance as it happens whenever status quo is threatened. My point is that it is bound to happend one day or the other, and I think your point of view is that it will not happen, Right?

    Talking about global culture, with the advent high speed internet, people are evermore connected to each other regardless of distances between them. Last year when I was in Pakistan, I had a USB internet stick which kept me connected to the world even when I was in one the most remote parts of Pakistan.

    Jeans are one example of one universal culture, they are popular amongst all youngsters, recently the song "gangnum style" became so popular across the globe so fast, this can be taken as a global culture.

    Theoretical physics is a very important field of Physics, it lays the foundation for innovation. Almost every modern technology owes a great deal to theoretical physics.

    If you have time and you are interested, watch this documentary with Jim Al Khalili called "Order and Disorder" to see how theoretical physics contributes to the field of science.

    AR

    The word of God is immutable, humans can't change it.You have a very childish concept of "God" Who didn't know that humans are going to alter His message and failed to preserve it from the very beginning.

    True word of "God" is The Universal Laws of Physics also known as Laws of Nature.They are understood in any language and no one has the power to change them.Everything else is just interesting stories.



  • اور دنیا میں ایسی جگہیں جہاں ابھی انسان پونچا ہی نہی

    By "Duniya", you mean planet earth, right? If earth than yes you are correct, scientists know more about cosmos than the oceans. Land has been explored almost to each and every corner and nook, though scientists did come across a tribe in Amazon which has never been in contact with modern humans. They were filmed with a high power camera from an airplane flying about 1km distance. Also, I read somewhere that 1 billion human beings to this day live the way they did 6000 years ago i.e. with the same technology which was available 6000 years ago.

    Regardless, this doesn't mean that we will not enter type 1 civilization.



  • Abdul Rahman Sb.,

    Is Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) the last Prophet (PBUH) to those intelligent life forms as well which dwell in far away planets? Is Quran the divine Book for them as well? Or was Prophet (PBUH) simultaneously sent on all living planets with the divine Holy Quran?

    Or is Prophet Mohammad(PBUH) Naouzbillah only sent for homo sapiens of the planet Earth of a solar system in the Milky Way galaxy of the universe?



  • Quran and Science and after his vivid description of historical and cosmic events came to conclusion about the authenticity of Quran and embraced Islam.


    I know Maurice Buccaile made lot of money writing some books but I don't think he embraced Islam.

    He was personal physician to the Saudi King if he became Muslim doesn't mean anything.



  • I think calculating formula of these scientists is similar to Dr. Qadri. He said 4 millions and they are saying 17 million.



  • @ Zia M

    He was personal physician to the Saudi King if he became Muslim doesn't mean anything

    Al-Quran. Surah Baqarah.

    13. And when it is told to them, ‘believe as other people have believed’ [17], they say ‘shall we believe like fools?’ [18]; verily, they are the fools but they know it not [19].

    17. Their parable is as if someone lit a fire, and when it illuminated whatever was around it, Allah took their light away and left them in darkness so they could not see [25].

    18. Deaf, dumb and blind, then they won’t return.

    19. Or as the water descending from the sky, containing in it darkness, thunderclap, and lightning [26]; they are clogging their fingers in their ears due to the thunderclaps, afraid of death [27], and Allah has surrounded the kafirs [28].
