Michio Kaku: Is God a Mathematician?


Some people ask the question of what good
is math?  What is the relationship between math and physics?  Well, sometimes math leads. 
Sometimes physics leads.  Sometimes they come together because, of course, there’s
a use for the mathematics.  For example, in the 1600s Isaac Newton asked a simple question:
if an apple falls then does the moon also fall?  That is perhaps one of the greatest
questions ever asked by a member of Homo sapiens since the six million years since we parted
ways with the apes.  If an apple falls, does the moon also fall? 
Isaac Newton said yes, the moon falls because of the Inverse Square Law.  So does an apple. 
He had a unified theory of the heavens, but he didn’t have the mathematics to solve the
falling moon problem.  So what did he do?  He invented calculus.  So calculus is a direct
consequence of solving the falling moon problem.  In fact, when you learn calculus for the first
time, what is the first thing you do?  The first thing you do with calculus is you calculate
the motion of falling bodies, which is exactly how Newton calculated the falling moon, which
opened up celestial mechanics. So here is a situation where math and physics
were almost conjoined like Siamese twins, born together for a very practical question,
how do you calculate the motion of celestial bodies?  Then here comes Einstein asking
a different question and that is, what is the nature and origin of gravity?  Einstein
said that gravity is nothing but the byproduct of curved space.  So why am I sitting in
this chair?  A normal person would say I’m sitting in this chair because gravity pulls
me to the ground, but Einstein said no, no, no, there is no such thing as gravitational
pull; the earth has curved the space over my head and around my body, so space is pushing
me into my chair.  So to summarize Einstein’s theory, gravity does not pull; space pushes. 
But, you see, the pushing of the fabric of space and time requires differential calculus. 
That is the language of curved surfaces, differential calculus, which you learn in fourth year calculus.
So again, here is a situation where math and physics were very closely combined, but this
time math came first.  The theory of curved surfaces came first.  Einstein took that
theory of curved surfaces and then imported it into physics.
Now we have string theory.  It turns out that 100 years ago math and physics parted
ways.  In fact, when Einstein proposed special relativity in 1905, that was also around the
time of the birth of topology, the topology of hyper-dimensional objects, spheres in 10,
11, 12, 26, whatever dimension you want, so physics and mathematics parted ways.  Math
went into hyperspace and mathematicians said to themselves, aha, finally we have found
an area of mathematics that has no physical application whatsoever.  Mathematicians pride
themselves on being useless.  They love being useless.  It’s a badge of courage being useless,
and they said the most useless thing of all is a theory of differential topology and higher
dimensions. Well, physics plotted along for many decades. 
We worked out atomic bombs.  We worked out stars.  We worked out laser beams, but recently
we discovered string theory, and string theory exists in 10 and 11 dimensional hyperspace. 
Not only that, but these dimensions are super.  They’re super symmetric.  A new kind of numbers
that mathematicians never talked about evolved within string theory.  That’s how we call
it “super string theory.”  Well, the mathematicians were floored.  They were shocked
because all of a sudden out of physics came new mathematics, super numbers, super topology,
super differential geometry.  All of a sudden we had super symmetric theories
coming out of physics that then revolutionized mathematics, and so the goal of physics we
believe is to find an equation perhaps no more than one inch long which will allow us
to unify all the forces of nature and allow us to read the mind of God.  And what is
the key to that one inch equation?  Super symmetry, a symmetry that comes out of physics,
not mathematics, and has shocked the world of mathematics.  But you see, all this is
pure mathematics and so the final resolution could be that God is a mathematician.  And
when you read the mind of God, we actually have a candidate for the mind of God.  The
mind of God we believe is cosmic music, the music of strings resonating through 11 dimensional
hyperspace.  That is the mind of God.

  1. If you know whom God is , then you could explain all your problems. The aliens are the angels from the bible. They created Adam and Eve.
    They lived in this world long before the human race. Just remember that there are two different kinds of aliens. Extremely advanced in every respect of the word. Comunicate in telecanises. Fly around in starships.

  2. What good we get after proving string theory and travel through time? Would it eradicate the sufferings of humans? Sun would never be controlled by us. Prof Kaku Sir you've got a wonderful brain. Use it for good. E=mc square has brought us to the brink of extinction. This is not negative thinking, its the real world.. more nuclear weapons and test and power generation and more close we are to be doomed. Earthquakes cyclones..severe weather conditions are realities…

  3. I bet you can't find or can't read the mind of God with your own wisdom little bro. It seems like you don't fear the Lord, so how will you find and read the mind of God. Your theory of everything will definitely fail.

  4. It is Allah Who begins (the process of) creation; then repeats it; then shall ye be brought back to Him.
    .
    And at the time when the hour shall come the guilty shall be in despair.

    And they shall not have any intercessors from among their gods they have joined with Allah, and they shall be deniers of their associate-gods.

    And at the time when the hour shall come, at that time they shall become separated one from the other.

    Then as to those who believed and did good, they shall be made happy in a garden

    And as to those who disbelieved and rejected Our communications and the meeting of the hereafter, these shall be brought over to the chastisement.

    Therefore glory be to Allah when you enter upon the time of the evening and when you enter upon the time of the morning.

    And to Him belongs praise in the heavens and the earth, and at nightfall and when you are at midday.

    He brings forth the living from the dead and brings forth the dead from the living, and gives life to the earth after its death, and thus shall you be brought forth.

    And of His signs is this: He created you of dust, and behold you human beings, ranging widely!

    And one of His signs is that He created mates for you from yourselves that you may find rest in them, and He put between you love and compassion; most surely there are signs in this for a people who reflect

    And one of His signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth and the diversity of your tongues and colors; most surely there are signs in this for the learned.

    And one of His signs is your sleeping and your seeking of His grace by night and (by) day; most surely there are signs in this for a people who would hear.

    And one of His signs is that He shows you the lightning for fear and for hope, and sends down water from the clouds then gives life therewith to the earth after its death; most surely there are signs in this for a people who understand

    And one of His signs is that the heaven and the earth subsist by His command, then when He calls you with a (single) call from out of the earth, lo! you come forth.

    And His is whosoever is in the heavens and the earth; all are obedient to Him.

    And He it is Who originates the creation, then reproduces it, and it is easy to Him; and His are the most exalted attributes in the heavens and the earth, and He is the Mighty, the Wise.

    Al-Room verse 30 chapter 10 – 27

  5. How real is your mathematician "God" ? Think about it before you state that "God" watches over you , or that "God" listens to you , or that "God" created this and that ! Because you are about to be presented with the simplest and yet most tangible evidence for "God" non-existence , just to give you an example : if you were to cut your hand , accidentally , and then you pray to "God" for help with the bleeding on your injured hand , does this bleeding actually stop by praying ? No , it doesn't ! Why not ? Because your 'God' is only an abstract symbol and not a real entity that actually exists out there in the physical world of nature . Therefore "God" does not have any real means to interfere in the physical nature of our world either . That's why , no matter how long you will be praying to "God" for help with this bleeding hand of yours , the bleeding will not really stop by praying , and that is a fact . A prayer to "God" is only a futile exercise in ritualistic practices and a fruiitless repetitive behaviour , which has no effect whatsoever on the outcome of any physical event of nature . If your 'God' was real and with real power to match , then a sincere and heartfelt prayer to "God" for help with the bleeding on your hand , should certainly be sufficient in stopping the bleeding outright ! But the fact is that a prayer to "God" for help , however sincere and heartfelt , isn't sufficient in stopping anything at all , and that is another fact . In order to really stop the bleeding , you will need : human intervention , which is certainly real , and a bandage dressing , which is also real , and time to allow for the damaged tissues on your hand to repair themselves and finally heal . That's how you stop a bleeding from an injury , not by praying to "God" for help . Of course you can't prove that "God" does not exist directly , but you can certainly prove that "God" does not actually exist indirectly , simply by observing the effects that a non-existent 'God' does not have on any physical event of nature , such as a bleeding from an injury , or anything else you care to think about , which can be tested for the effects "God" power has on their predictable outcome , such as earthquakes , or tsunamis , or hurricanes , or volcanic eruptions , or floods , etc. As you can see for yourself , things in the real and physical world of nature , would have to be totally different from what they really are , if your 'God' was real and with real power to match , which is obviously not the case . Thanks for reading it .

  6. Just to give you a reality check about what these extra spatial dimensions this video is talking about are really like , they are so tightly folded in the fabric of space time itself , that if you able to split a human hair into a million slices , then you may be able to fit one single slice of a millionth of human hair in diameter , into one of these extra spatial dimensions ! Who actually inhabits these extra spatial dimensions ? Nobody ! These extra spatial dimensions , beyond our three spatial dimensions we live in our everyday lives , are so utterly and so ridiculously tiny as to be inaccessible to everyone and everything that remotely approaches human-size , or even mouse-size , or ant-size , or bacteria-size organisms ! That's how microscopically small they actually are . If they really exist at all , and that is a big "if" too . Thanks for reading it .

  7. This loser is definitely dumb. God is a creator not a mathematician. Maths n science are just tools to understand world arnd us. Yes! God make both maths n mathematicians

  8. Very Poetic Michio – but you can NEVER summarise who God is… God is BEYOND the Human Mind, and beyond tangible explanation.. Try Ari Films, Kabbalah to get a little closer, though… : )

  9. I don't think we should call them strings because what is a line in 3D is a plane in 4D and a hypercube in 10D. This means that they should be flexible and compressible in multiple dimensions and it is essential in string theory to respect those other manifestations.

    Also, is this Big Think room a freaking SAUNA??

  10. His eyes were gloomy red. Very Suspicious. God is our Creator, He's Everything & Knows Everything. Mr. Kaku your wrong there when you said he's just Cosmic Music & Strings LOL.

  11. Basic Math and Physics came from the observation of nature first, and only then came the modern physics and math that tells us about a non observable nature. I think not telling grad students that fact is the greatest flaw of our educational system.

  12. But still exist discussion about math if is invention or really part of universe who is there for us discovery ..

  13. GOD IS A REDHEAD, BECAUSE HE CARES, HE GAVE YOU THIS WORLD, MADE THE UNIVERSE ENDLESS SO YOU DONT LIVE IN A BOX OR PRISON, THUS ON EARTH, ACCORING TO MOHAMMAD, GOD AND THE ANGELS WAS REDHEAD, SO I SAY, WE ARE MESSIAH, WE RUN THE WORLD, WE CARE, WE MAY BE EXTINCT SO THE DEVIL LUCIFER THE FALLEN REDHEAD, CAN TRICK YOU TO BEAT PEOPLE UP, BLOW YOURSELF UP, YOU SEE HES EGO….. 1000 % BYE

  18. hahahahaha the music of god, the cosmic music is nothing but what in hindu scriptures have said the sound of "OM" hahahahahahahahaha

  19. All of this is peanuts. If you need answers really go watch actualized.org

    These people have no clue as what they are dealing with.

    Don't judge the book by the cover, and leo is certainly the best thing you will ever find youtube.

  20. Why do humans need Gods, mere figments of brains tortured by thoughts of mortality and that pathetic need for redemption?

  21. Of course God knows everything He call the trillions of stars by their names. Mankind and everything in the Universe was created by God. Mankind is just learning how to use some of God's creations.

  22. You want to know about God? Get to know Him by His Names. Look up His 99 names from Wikipedia online. Get the load of these Definitions and Functionalities.

  23. So, he's basically saying God loves being useless? Since God is a mathematician and mathematicians take pride in being useless 😀

  24. Michio Kaku is 100% correct!

    Look at the these factors >

    > How mathematical balanced
    the universe and work according to physical and mathematical laws with extreme
    precision

    > The fact that math and physics even exist

    > The probability of usable protein forming is 1.0E+43

    > The probability of DNA forming from protein is 1.0E+243

    > Why earth has an ozone layer that works to regulates the earth’s temperature

    > Why the earth has a moon that pulls on the earth’s water to prevent the oceans water from becoming stagnant

    > Why the earth has a magnetic field that protects the earth’s atmosphere from being blown away by solar winds

    > Why the earth is located at the perfect distance from the sun

    > Why the earth and everything around us is designed like a classroom

    > Why the earth is able to recycle itself and all its resources

    > Why every living thing on the planet is dependent upon the sun for its energy in one way or another

    > Why the periodic table of elements works in such a way that elements are able to combine together to form compounds necessary for the existence for life

    > Why E=MC2 is only 5 characters in length but the equation is able to summarizes all the matter and energy in the universe

    > Why Jupiter is positioned in such a way that Jupiter is able to catch all stray meteors before they collide with earth

    > Why the human body consists of over a trillion cells and still manages to function as a single self aware conscious organism / being  

    > Why the properties of water are such that water expands when water freezes (which allows aquatic life to live in colder temperatures)

    > Why fish and aquatic animals are able to extract oxygen from the water

    > Why plants are able to use the CO2 animals breathe out and produce O2 which humans and animals require

    > Why plants are able to recycle the waste and decomposition of living organisms

    > Why something as simple as a seed cannot be made with all the knowledge that humanity has had in all of human
    history

    Is everything just a coincidence or is God REAL?

    …and lastly, why is the Bible flawless even when the Bible has had over 40 different authors?

  25. String Theory relies on supersymetry which I believe to be incorrect. If anyone can prove string theory, supersymetry and can solve the dimension dilemma or prove there are more than 3/4 dimensions then they are greater than Einstein

  26. This propagandist is mainstream media news puppet of the Luciferian doctrine and their junk science academia. Einstein was a buffoon, and this guy is full of nonsense. God is love and created us in his image. God created all math and physics. All true science and physics are in the Bible and Book of Noah, rather man can understand it without Jesus is another question.

  27. Amazing! This reminds me of the scientist Tom Campbell, you may want to visit his youtube channel. his MBT theory is about our universe being a virtual reality and that's why it seems so mathematical. His explanation to our existence blew my mind.

  28. Ross: You don't believe in evolution?
    Phoebe: I don't know, it's just, you know…monkeys, Darwin, you know, it's a, it's a nice story, I just think it's a little too easy.
    Ross: Too easy? Too…. The process of every living thing on this planet evolving over millions of years from single-celled organisms is… is too easy?
    Phoebe: Yeah, I just don't buy it.
    Ross: Uh, excuse me. Evolution is not for you to buy, Phoebe. Evolution is scientific fact, like, like, like the air we breathe, like gravity.
    Phoebe: Oh, okay, don't get me started on gravity.
    Ross: You uh, you don't believe in gravity?
    Phoebe: Well, it's not so much that you know, like I don't believe in it, you know, it's just…I don't know, lately I get the feeling that I'm not so much being pulled down as I am being pushed.
    [There's a knock at the door]
    Chandler: Uh-Oh. It's Isaac Newton, and he's pissed.

  29. Dr Michio Kaku, sir.

    What do you think about advertising that force to watch their products by spending data a little but very intens, from an ordinary citizen viewer like me?

    Isnt opposite act must be in taking place, is it? Because of data must be bought and werent free fallen from the sky, they have to pay me then.

    Can this act be called as civilize manner of human being, cant it?

    Also, I believe that I am not the only one here.

    Thank you.

  30. I just ate an apple, but are you sure Math ain't just God? Heck, maybe you're God… HELL, maybe we all are….anyways, Eye think this guy should smoke DMT with Jordan Peterson sometime and you all should go smoke a joint! 😀

  31. I think all of this is just a simulator and we exist because the people who made this simulation is trying to find much more complex than einstein's theory, idk if this is true but I gotta admit it is pretty ridiculous

  32. You have to prove that god exists before thinking about his job or his hobbies or whatever.
    There, i watched & commented. Happy? Now stop recommending this video to me, youtube.

  33. Selamun Alleykum

    ALLAH a.k.a GOD sent thousands of prophets to the humanity.

    And the last prophet Mohammad was sent by GOD, 1400 yeas ago.

    Last updated religion is Islam and the last messenger is Mohammad.

    God wants us to believe his last prophet Mohammad.

    If we don't believe him, we will be sent to the Hell.

    Hell is the one of other universies and nobody wants to go there.

    Please let everyone be muslim to rescue themselves from the hell.

    Regards
