you mean like some models don't predict a singularity, it just starts from there...
...isn't the proof for string in the maths and that is fundamentally sound, i mean isn't eveything maths based and as long as that stacks up then it's sweet ???
I don't get why it has to make a clear and unique prediction of the output of an experiment ???
...and just cos it doesn't people want to bin it in favour of what ???
surely there has to be some sort of fundamental minimum scale particle that operates string like in 4d ???
so perhaps a rose by another name...
The one great thing that String physics has going for it is the sweet math. It is impressive, but then the mathematicians have gobs of sweet math, and that isn't physics. The point is that if the only things you can say about the universe are things that can't possibly be checked, then what good is your theory? Is it only an art form, to be admired without doing anything?
