Have you ever wondered if there are parallel universes? Earlier this year, a NASA study suggested there might be another universe where time goes backwards. Could that be a universe made of antimatter? Why did matter win over antimatter after the Big Bang? If there is an antimatter universe out there, does that mean we all have evil twins? Join Pet…
 
What do we really know about octopuses? For starters, they don't have 8 tentacles...they're called arms. Did you know they had 3 hearts? 9 brains? And that some people believe they aren't originally from Earth? If you've been lucky enough to catch the Netflix documentary "My Octopus Teacher”, then you also know they are capable of so much more than…

Assuming we'd be considering this, it'd be safe to say there's a pretty good reason, i.e. an asteroid is on a collision co…
 
It's easy to forget that long standing scientific theories are in fact, theories and therefore are subject to revision and change as new information comes to light or we develop new ways to understand our Universe. The current accepted theory on the creation of our Universe is, of course, "The Big Bang Theory". But cutting edge new work is threaten…

So imagine that all of the reports of UFO's, visitations and alien abductions were true...but sort of not? Confused? How about instead of "aliens" being alien, they were actually humans travelling back in time from the future to study their origins as a species? This is the thesis of "identified Flying Objects", a book by Dr. Mike Masters who took …
 
Have you ever wondered what it might be like to have lived like a Pharaoh? Walked like an Egyptian? Reached the top of the Pyramid? Ancient Egypt continues to be one of the most enduring mysteries for our modern world, a source of never ending fascination. But as much as we know about pyramids and mummy's, we know very little about what life might …

Does size really matter when it comes to our brains? Does a bigger brain mean a smarter person? And how much do we really know about our brains? Michio Kaku, one of the world's most popular science communicators, will join Richard and Peter to help try to answer the big "What IF". He will also blow our minds with his insights on "The Future of the …
 
Mark Twain once said...Well, Mark Twain said a lot of things but in this particular context, his "it's difficult to make predictions, particularly about the future" is as apropos as it is yogi Berra-ish. But these days, futurism is not only harder than it's probably ever been, but also not for the faint of heart. Everything from AI to quantum compu…
 
There's perhaps no bigger "What If" that will ever be asked. As long as we have been able to look up at the stars and understand the vastness of space, humans have pondered whether we are indeed alone in the universe. But perhaps no one has "been on the case" in a more serious way and for as long as the former Director of SETI - Search for Extra Te…
 
What has long been explored in science-fiction as well as prophesied as the next step in the evolution of human beings by "Singularity" proponents like Ray Kurzweil is now not only predicted as an eventuality...it's already happening!!!

Do you consider yourself a pioneer? An explorer perhaps? Would you "go boldly where no one has gone before" - well, almost no one. And would you stay?

"What Is Real?" Many remember the now famous quote from Lawrence Fishburne's character "Morpheus" in the smash hit phenomenon "The Matrix" to the Keanu Reeves' character NEO when pondering whether they might be living in a computer simulation.

Each week on “What If Discussed”, we explore the big hypotheticals and ponder the possibilities. This week is different.

Do you ever feel like you're being watched... by aliens? The "Zoo Hypothesis" as it is known in science circles speculates that some form of advanced, alien beings are watching us but deliberately not contacting us so as to not interfere with our evolution.
