If you cannot find the truth right where you are,
where else do you expect to find it?

I think he's right that people need both. However, there are far more forms and practices of mysticism than Eastern. Physics is universal, but different societies have found different ways to explain "what happens" in nature. Western physics makes predictions about what happens outside the nature we can perceive, and then it attempts to explain how. If someone wants to learn how to live on the moon or Mars, it will require a different way of thinking. But, on the moon, people will still have, and maybe need, mysticism.

A Buddhist monk on the moon will still have to breathe. If members of six different religions are on Mars, who decides what's "right" and "wrong"? What decisions will be made based on different ideas about the creation of the universe? It's only relatively safe for religion and mysticism to conflict with science. Space doesn't care.

I finally got to the end of the Kaku book and he starts to bring up metaphysics.

Even if we figure out the unified theory, what happened before the Big Bang, is there a metaverse, etc.? Where do these unified laws of physics come from? Physics would still have zero idea ... so metaphysics, religion, philosophy will have to do it.
