Michio Kaku – Will Mankind Destroy Itself?

“It’s humbling to realize that the developmental gulf between a minuscule ant colony and our modern human civilization is only a tiny fraction of the distance between a Type 0 and a Type III civilization – a factor of 100 billion billion, in fact. Yet we have such a highly regarded view of ourselves, we believe a Type III civilization would find us irresistible and would rush to make contact with us. The truth is, however, they may be as interested in communicating with humans as we are keen to communicate with ants.”
Michio Kaku

Mister Rogers & the US Senate

“This is what I give. I give an expression of care every day to each child, to help him realize that he is unique. I end each program by saying, ‘You’ve made this day a special day by just your being you. There’s no person in the whole world like you. And I like you just the way you are.’ And I feel that if we in public television can only make it clear that feelings are mentionable and manageable, we will have done a great service.”
Fred Rogers
