The 3rd episode of this four-part series with string theory pioneer Michio Kaku’s exploration of time. The most powerful effect of time on our lives is the way it limits us. Our knowledge of death is so embedded in our lives and spirituality that, were immortality possible, would we lose the sense that makes us human? Segment 1 (10 min)
This is the 2nd episode of this four-part series with string theory pioneer Michio Kaku’s exploration of time. Our awareness that time stretches back long before we were born, and will continue to stretch into the future long after we’re gone, lies at the heart of our humanity. Without this sense we couldn’t learn from the past, and wouldn’t plan for the future. But where did we come from, and where are we going in time? Every culture mythologizes time and attempts to answer the ultimate questions: was there a beginning? And will there be an end? Segment 1 (10:05 min)
In this four-part series, string theory pioneer Michio Kaku goes on an extraordinary exploration of the world in search of time.

Finally, he takes us on a cosmic journey in search of the beginning (and the end) of time itself.
