Invisibility, Shape Shifting, and the Magician

#1 The Magician from the Smith Waite Tarot

Shape shifting and invisible cloaks? It sounds like the work of Tarot’s Magician, but according to Michio Kaku, science is developing both right now.

In the Big Think video below, Kaku says that work on invisibility is already quite advanced. And if that weren’t exciting enough, scientists have turned their attention to shape shifting.

It’s called programmable matter and the idea is that by replacing atoms with micro-chips, something that starts out as one thing could be transformed into something entirely different at the touch of a button.

It really does seem magical. And I’m tempted to say I’ll believe it when I see it, or in the case of invisibility, when I don’t.

But as the Magician himself teaches, to make things real, you need to believe in the vision, then focus your mind to bring it into being.

It looks like the scientists have learnt that lesson well. They’re magicians all.
