Kaku: Transition To Type “One” Civilization Will Determine “Fate Of Mankind.” Dr. Michio Kaku says that there are three types of civilizations and we are a type zero civilization which means we get our energy from dead things, and the transition to a type one or “planetary” civilization that could very well lead to our demise. Dr. Michio Kaku, physicist, sees two major trends in the world today: the first is toward a multicultural, scientific, tolerant society; the other, as evidenced by terrorism, is fundamentalist and monocultural.
Whichever one wins out will determine the fate of mankind.
