An Excellent Interview with Michio Kaku…

Michio Kaku is a very smart man, with some prescient notions. My favorite is this one, because it is pretty much the motto of every artist and intellectual I know.

5. What is the first thing you would make if you had your own matter-fabricator?
A. Some people may ask for diamonds, gold bullions or truckloads of cash. However, I have never desired to be wealthy. Money does not interest me. I’ve always wanted something that a replicator can never create: ideas. Wealth is something that corrupts and dies with you. But ideas can live forever and change the world.[/quote]
