Mind reading, recording memories, downloading dreams, telekinesis- no longer are these the province of science fiction. In some laboratories, they already exist. Michio Kaku takes us on a thrilling tour of the latest advances in brain science – in this life, and beyond. ‘A mind-bending study of the possibilities of the brain . . . a clear and readable guide to what is going on at a time of astonishingly rapid change.’ Caspar Henderson, Daily Telegraph ‘Compelling . . . Kaku thinks with great breadth, and the vistas he presents us are worth the trip.’ Adam Frank, The New York Times Book Review ‘Kaku turns his crystal ball to brain science and the future of human minds. His new book spans everything from smart pills that enhance cognition to placing our neural blueprint on laser beams sent out into space.’ New Scientist

Michio Kaku
The God Equation The Quest for a Theory of Everything

INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

The epic story of the greatest quest in all of science–the holy grail of physics that would explain the creation of the universe–from renowned theoretical physicist and author of The Future of the Mind and The Future of Humanity

When Newton discovered the law of gravity, he unified the rules governing the heavens and the Earth. Since then, physicists have been placing new forces into ever-grander theories.

But perhaps the ultimate challenge is achieving a monumental synthesis of the two remaining theories–relativity and the quantum theory. This would be the crowning achievement of science, a profound merging of all the forces of nature into one beautiful, magnificent equation to unlock the deepest mysteries in science: What happened before the Big Bang? What lies on the other side of a black hole? Are there other universes and dimensions? Is time travel possible? Why are we here?

Kaku also explains the intense controversy swirling around this theory, with Nobel laureates taking opposite sides on this vital question. It is a captivating, gripping story; what’s at stake is nothing less than our conception of the universe.

Written with Kaku’s trademark enthusiasm and clarity, this epic and engaging journey is the story of The God Equation.

The Future of Humanity Terraforming Mars, Interstellar Travel, Immortality, and Our Destiny Beyond


A SUNDAY TIMES BOOK OF THE YEAR
The #1 bestselling author of The Future of the Mind brings us a stunning new vision of our future in space

Human civilization is on the verge of spreading beyond Earth. More than a possibility, it is becoming a necessity: whether our hand is forced by climate change and resource depletion or whether future catastrophes compel us to abandon Earth, one day we will make our homes among the stars.

World-renowned physicist and futurist Michio Kaku explores in rich, accessible detail how humanity might gradually develop a sustainable civilization in outer space. With his trademark storytelling verve, Kaku shows us how science fiction is becoming reality: mind-boggling developments in robotics, nanotechnology, and biotechnology could enable us to build habitable cities on Mars; nearby stars might be reached by microscopic spaceships sailing through space on laser beams; and technology might one day allow us to transcend our physical bodies entirely.

With irrepressible enthusiasm and wonder, Dr. Kaku takes readers on a fascinating journey to a future in which humanity could finally fulfil its long-awaited destiny among the stars – and perhaps even achieve immortality.
