The Future of the Mind: The Scientific Quest to Understand, Enhance, and Empower the Mind

Fox Theater, 2215 Broadway St., Redwood City


Please join us for a fascinating afternoon with renowned theoretical physicist and noted author, Michio Kaku who will present his latest book, The Future of the Mind.

Dr. Kaku holds the Henry Semat Chair and Professorship in theoretical physics at the City College of New York, where he has taught for over 25 years. He is a co-creator of string field theory, a branch of string theory, and the author of several widely acclaimed science books, including Hyperspace, Beyond Einstein, Physics of the Impossible, and Physics of the Future

Dr. Kaku hosted “The Universe” on the History Channel and has appeared on Discovery, BBC, ABC, the Science Channel, and CNN. He has written for Discover, Wired, and New Scientist, been featured in the documentary Me & Isaac Newton, and hosted many of his own including BBC’s recent series on Time.

In The Future of the Mind, Dr. Kaku gives us a look at the astonishing research being done in top laboratories around the world—all based on the latest advancements in neuroscience and physics. For the first time in history, the secrets of the living brain are being revealed by a battery of high tech brain scans devised by physicists. Now what was once solely the province of science fiction has become a startling reality. Recording memories, telepathy, videotaping our dreams, mind control, avatars, and telekinesis are not only possible; they already exist.

Dr. Kaku takes us on a grand tour of what the future might hold, 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" and applies it to provide fresh insight into mental illness, artificial intelligence and alien consciousness.

Tickets are still available at the Fox Theatre.
