Michio Kaku is just a Sesame Street Puppet on TV. Did he say anything innovative or is he just reading a script? I'm dumbfounded by how these people on TV are so dumb.
I want to teach Stephen Hawking how to lucid dream. Being a smart person I'm sure he's heard of it and can use his body again for a brief period. Why is it all considered hog-wash? I'm serious!
Anyway, as a lucid dreamer I can tell you, whatever the brain activity is for eating 'a chocolate cake' in reality is based upon past experience, and it's also activated in a lucid dream when you eat the illusion of 'a chocolate cake'. I am amazed by muscle movement too and how you can do a pull-up or climb a wall in a lucid dream and feel every muscle and every tendon stretch and work just like real life. (It's rare, but it has happened to me a few times). Stephen Hawking wasn't born in a wheel chair and it happened later in life due to disease, and (I shouldn't pick on him, but it sums up all scientists in general), he should learn to lucid dream!
I want them all to, and then come back to me with something important to say.

(It was an invitation to vent and kick a little Science-TV-Puppets around and I could have been worse!)
