The Lesson: While mainstream media may paint the future of humanity as all doom and gloom, this theoretical physicist has some intriguing ideas on why we should feel optimistically about the years ahead. In this podcast, Michio Kaku describes how his family background influenced his outlook on life; how to create and develop wonder in the human mind; his process of discovery and what keeps him curious; and what the future of humanity looks like.

Notable Excerpt: “Well, let’s take a look at the timeline; NASA has published it now. We’re going back to the moon next year. Think about that – after a 50-year gap, next year in December 2019, we’re going to send an unmanned Orion space capsule right around the moon. Four years after that in 2023, we’re back to the moon with astronauts. Now it takes 3 days to go to the moon and 3 days to come back. You could do it in one week. [So] I firmly believe that our grandkids will honeymoon on the moon. Three days! Instead of simply waxing eloquently about the moon at night, ‘honey, why not just visit the moon?’ It’s going to be that cheap and that close to us.”

The GuestMichio Kaku is a theoretical physicist who is “following in the footsteps of Einstein”. With his String Field Theory, he aims to crack open the answers of the universe. His gift for making such an intimidating subject so accessible is his way of helping to popularize science for others to digest and explore on their own. In addition to being a professor of theoretical physics in the City College of New York and CUNY Graduate Center, Kaku is a bestselling author, radio shot host, and a highly-demanded guest speaker for media and television.

The Host: Tom Bilyeu is the American entrepreneur responsible for co-founding Quest Nutrition: a health food brand that has been called the second fastest growing company in North America. Additionally, he is the co-founder and host of Impact Theory: a podcast dedicated towards educating the masses about business and success.
