Kardashev scale – What Type of Civilization are we in?


We have reached a turning point in
society. According to renowned theoretical physicists Michio Kaku, The
next 100 years of science will determine Whether we perish or thrive experts
assert that as a civilization grows larger and becomes more advanced its
energy demands will increase rapidly due to its population growth and the energy
requirements of its various machines with this in mind the Kardashev scale was
developed as a way of measuring a civilizations technological advancement
based upon how much usable energy it has at its disposal Type zero or sub global culture
this civilization extract its energy and raw materials from crude organic based
sources such as wood coal and oil any rockets utilized by such a civilization
would necessarily depend on chemical propulsion since such travel is so
pitifully slow a civilization at this level will be for the most part confined
to its home planet unfortunately this is about where we are we haven’t quite made
it to type one yet. This civilization would be
slightly more advanced than those found on earth they would be capable of
utilizing all available resources on their home planet skillfully harnessing
the energy output of an entire world with any luck we will reach the stage in
100 to 200 years so maybe your grandkids will be around to see it there’s some
hope in that assuming you have kids. This civilization would be far more advanced than we are such a society
will be able to harness all the energy of its star not just merely transforming
starlight into energy but controlling the star itself. This civilization would be able to harness the energy output of a galaxy
they have colonized the galaxy itself extracting energy from hundreds of
billions of stars travelling across interstellar space and populating
innumerable worlds This
civilization would be an intergalactic culture spanning the breadth and width of
the universe they would travel across the cosmos commanding the power of a
billion trillion Suns these societies would be capable of attempting projects
of gargantuan superhuman proportions such as changing the structure of space
and time or said civilizations may ultimately become capable of living
inside the event horizon of extra massive black holes for Humanity such
accomplishments might be forever beyond our reach. This civilization will have transcended their universe of origin it would be
capable of universe scale manipulation a civilization such as this would be home
to beings of unimaginable power and ability
hopefully mankind would be able to survive long enough to reach all the
types in this scale
