Max Tegmark, PhD Professor of Physics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology.  Max Tegmark has a proud reputation as a fearless and unconventional thinker.

In this evening's discussion, to be recorded in BMC's Studio A for television, Dr. Tegmark talks about his new book, which presents fundamental reality as a mathematical entity, his well-known concept of multiple universes, and also how his concepts have developed and what it takes to think outside the box at a time when many scientists are fearful of the risk.

In addition to his own ideas, he describes how many of the conceptual leaps in science --certainly in physics and cosmology-- were initially ignored or rejected.
