All new theories are! Experimentation will determine the outcome.

Heinz likely knows a lot more about the strand model than I, but reading the strand thread I sure did not think Schiller was proposing a single strand, but rather multiple strands of infinite length to horizons....he even says strands are separated by Planck Lengths....
Schiller says that all strands are "infinite" in the sense that they reach the "border of space". In practice, the border is the cosmic horizon. Schiller also argues that at the horizon, all strands are connected. From a local viewpoint, strands are thus "infinite for all practical purposes"; from a global viewpoint, they are all "one and the same".
