In partnership with the 92nd Street Y’s 7 Days of Genius, a series of events that invite the public to consider what genius is, why it matters, and how it evolves. Sixth & I’s Genius Festival is made possibly by the generosity of the Emanuel J. Friedman Philanthropies.

In The Future of the Mind, Dr. Michio Kaku—a theoretical physicist, renowned futurist, and popularizer of science— tackles the most fascinating and complex object in the known universe: the human brain. Dr. Kaku brings a topic that once belonged solely to the province of science fiction into a startling new reality. He joins us on the occasion of the paperback release of the #1 New York Times bestseller,

The Future of the Mind
 unveils the astonishing research being done in top laboratories around the world—all based on the latest advancements in neuroscience and physics—including recent experiments in telepathy, mind control, avatars, telekinesis, and recording memories and dreams.

Dr. Kaku looks toward the day when we may achieve the ability to upload the human brain to a computer, neuron for neuron; project thoughts and emotions around the world on a brain-net; take a “smart pill” to enhance cognition; send our consciousness across the universe; and push the very limits of immortality.

As co-founder of String Field Theory, Dr. Kaku carries on Einstein’s quest to unite the four fundamental forces of nature into a single grand unified theory of everything. He is also the author of Physics of the Impossible and Physics of the Future.
