Dr. Michio Kaku.

Is the light of some stars and galaxies hidden by dark matter, or is dark matter translucent?

The Unabomber. I’d want to know what made an otherwise brilliant man into a multiple killer. What insights did he have that we might learn from.

I would have loved to interview Mark Twain.
Unfortunately rumours of his demise seem to have been verified.

Alan Turing

He probably won us WW2 and pretty much invented the modern computer and met a tragic end.

It’s hard to say if I would love interviewing someone or not. It would really depend on how they answered my questions and frankly, even if he were alive, I have a hard time imagining Miles Davis wanting to spend much time with me. But maybe he liked to talk shop. And I suppose if I had the power to bring him back to life for an interview, he might be willing to open up.

Other than that, I think I might like to interview a porn actress. Although, once again, I don’t know why she’d want to answer my questions. Although now I’m curious. What’s the official line in porn about how much size matters? On the one hand, you have the myth of size that is what keeps porn sites funded, but on the other, I’d think you’d want to give the little guy some hope.

I would like to interview Frank Zappa at his home in Los Angeles. I would like to know what he has to say about current politics but mostly I would like to hear him describe the process of composing music and where he got his musical ideas.

@Charles I don’t think you would get any real satisfaction out of that. His response would probably be rather simple and predictable:

1. Those people aren’t innocent.
2. I did it for Germany.

Several of them but atheist and afterlife researcher Michael Roll and his support of the evidence pointing to an afterlife. Roll’s case for the survival of our consciousness after the end of our physical lives allegedly has nothing to do with faith, religion or god, but instead credits this phenomena to natural laws and physics.

I somewhat share Roll’s (and other like minded people) view of the afterlife (without the religious dogma) but I have a few questions that I would like to ask these researchers and scientists behind this growing movement. The one thing that I would want to ask him is how he can accept Findley’s assumption that the universe is governed by Mind, but yet deny that you’re a theist. I have always attributted the concept of a disembodied intelligence (mind) to being what most religionists refer to as ‘God’.

I would also like to interview Brian Josephson, Dr. Louis Essen, Micheal Shermer and James Randi. No particular setting is important to me.

I would want to interview Emma Stone. The setting would be my bedroom, and some of the questions I would ask are “does that feel good?” and “what about when I do this?”

Based on talks I’ve seen from him, I’d love to interview Stephen King. One thing I’ve always been curious about is whether or not he believes in God.

mazingerz88's avatar

@augustlan Great choice. If I did that interview, I’ll start by saying, Mr. King, I’m here to pick your brain. And then I swing a hammer in an X shape. Lol. Wouldn’t it be a hoot to scare the living daylights out of someone who made a living doing just that? I love reading King’s commencement addresses at various universities.
