Michio Kaku: Time Travel, Parallel Universes, and Reality

Now, this may not be related to graphic design, but I'll tell you that if you aren't interested in this, you will be. Ricky Potts, a fellow blogger, has just recently talked about NASA and the Hubble telescope, which sparked this post. Also, I will admit that just tonight I went and saw the new Star Trek movie. Great movie! And like they say, it wasn't my dad's Star Trek!

Anywho, Michio Kaku has explained something so complex very easily. You will soon learn how smart this guy is! It involves time travel and parallel universes. According to him, it is theoretically possible to travel back in time and “meet your mother before you were born.” How? Well, first we need an incredible amount of energy, in the case of time travel, the energy of a star!

With this being said, if your mother falls in love with you how were you ever born? Good question! Michio says that there is a simple solution to this. That is, you would be forced into a parallel universe, where your life would then branch off into another path or "stream." I have many questions I would love to ask this guy, but for now, his theories and explanations for everything make me believe it is all possible. One day, technology will easily allow us to do things we can only dream of right now and this scientist is a constant reminder of that!

Watch this video and think about Michio's theories. Do you think they're possible? What are your thoughts on time travel and parallel universes? I'm curious!
