So Many Book, So Little Time…

HYPERSPACE A Scientific Odyssey Through Parallel Universes, Time Warps, and the 10th Dimension by Michio Kaku

An intriguing book to say the very least.  This book walks you through many of the sciences; mostly theoretical in nature.  You do not have to be a science geek to read it, but trust me it would be helpful in understanding a greater portion of the book.  Regardless of that fact, it was at the very least a rollercoaster ride learning a bit about many differing theories about hyperspace, wormholes, black holes, time travel, parallel universes, and other dimensions.  In some parts it was an easy read, and other parts were a tough read.  Overall, I found it to be a great book that touched on many theories and subjects of science which I have always been interested in, but just never read about or studied.  I left this book with several questions and thoughts, such as: As civilizations mature they tend to disappear; as these civilizations rise to power and harness the power of the atom, are they destined to destroy themselves?  Is the galaxy destined to continue to expand, or will it eventually – at some point in time – begin to contract?

I have seen Michio Kaku on several programs on the news channels, Discovery and Science channels.  He is a very interesting individual who seems to be able to put very tough subjects into very simplistic terms.

  1. I’ve never read it, but I’m going to have to add it to my reading list!

    This sounds an interesting book. But some of the speculation about civilisations harnessing the atom and then suffering some fate are a bit premature – as far as we know ours is the only one to do this and we’re still around and more or less OK. This question will be answered but probably not by us.

      I would agree with you, but considering how vast this universe is can anyone really believe that we are the only life forms that exist? Also, we could not be the only ones that have attempted to capture the power of the atom within this universe, let alone other potential parallel universes.
