Michio Kaku: “The Scientific Quest to Understand, Enhance and Empower The Mind”

Dr. Michio Kaku takes us on a grand tour of what the future holds, giving us not only a solid sense of how the brain functions but also how these technologies will change our daily lives. He even presents a radically new way to think about “consciousness.” Kaku says that one day we might have a “smart pill” to enhance our cognition; upload our ain to a computer, neuron for neuron; send thoughts and emotions around the world on a “brain-net”; control computers and robots with our minds; push the limits of immortality, sending consciousness across the universe.

We May Already Know How We Will Cure Death—But Should We?

The quest for humans to live forever is elegantly laid out in “The Immortalists,” a new documentary making its away around the film festival circuit.

The Immortalists is really a film about death, not life, which is what makes it so fascinating.
