Professor Michio Kaku, famous Theoretical Physicist and one of the inventors of Light Cone String Field Theory (one of the Relativistic forms of M-Theory), hosts a documentary on the use of the body of scientific knowledge on quantum mechanics that will lead to "The Quantum Revolution".
In this documentary, Michio Kaku explores the cutting edge of quantum science today, tomorrow, and beyond. He argues that humankind is at a turning point in history. Dr. Kaku's observation of the progress in human knowledge, and our increasing technology to experiment on this knowledge, will mean that in this century, we are going to make the historic transition from the 'Age of Discovery' to the 'Age of Mastery', a period in which we will move from being passive observers of nature to its active choreographers.
This will give us not only unparalleled possibilities but also great responsibilities.
Everything in our world depends on quantum mechanics working at the fundamental levels of atoms and electrons generating chemistry, atomic and nuclear physics that powers our universe and drives the forces that govern our lives and civilization.
By mastering classical physics we invented the industrial world in less than 200 years and by partially understanding the rules of quantum mechanics we have created the technological revolution, seen in the 20th-21st centuries in 60 years which has been accelerating to the point of a complete singularity.
