So not sure if many of you know much about this but i will try to give a quick description String theory is a scientific (mor emathematic really) theory that there are more dimensions than the 3 we currently know of. These dimensions are at every single point in space and are the building blocks of the entire universe. They are believed many times smaller than an atom, so small that we may never see them. The basic idea was started by Einstein who theorised that there is a single formula that is at the base of everything and can be used to describe everything. (His theory lost steam when weak and strong forces were discovered) Anyway current string theory demands that there be a further six dimensions of lots of curled up little wierd shaps all bunched together. A dude by the name of Kline I think has described it best as the following From a distance if you look at an electric wire its looks flat, but close up from say an ants perspective you will see lots of curled up wires together you can explore the usual dimensions of up down, back forward, side to side. However a new dimension then comes into being which is around. This is the heart of string theory. So now to what I want to know. especially from the Zealot. - If and when string theory is proven, how many dimensions do you believe will be discovered? - What will this do for your world view? For mine this concept is completely mind blowing because we have been led to believe that there are only 3 dimensions, man that changes a lot you dont realise if there are more and will give us the knowledge to play ummm GOD.
