Lecture Opinons Would be Great I love the theory of everything very much, as was made clear by me annoying everyone with posts about my site, but I am also giving a lecture on it in England. I am 17 years old and was selected from my math and science center for an exchange program with a American Private equivalent (English "public") school named oundle. The name of my lecture I gave was the quest for the theory of everything. As I found out after I was accepted for the trip and lecture, the lecture is suppose to be 45 minutes to an hour long. I have been researching for this as much as I could during my school year and really picked it up since I got out (June 3). I was originally afraid I wouldn't be able to talk for 45 minutes, but now I am afraid that there is so much to talk about I don't know what to leave out. The talk will before a so called "Yale Science Society" which really frightened me for 2 weeks until I found out that they were not from Yale, but was simply the name of the schools science club. So it is aimed at somewhat knowledgeable I assume teenagers around 16-18 I estimate. Anyway I was wondering if anyone would like to suggest some things I should talk about for the lecture. Also if anyone knows of any animations that I could use (aka copyright laws- I have the elegant universe dvd but don't want to risk copy right infraction for my PowerPoint) Right now I was going to talk about the basic way we arrived to the current problem of Uniting QM and GR from the previous two conflicts. Maybe something like I wrote here. Then discuss the development of the idea of the smallest constituent of matter, with something like I wrote here However considering how they kind of are both pre history before the 3rd conflict I may try to intertwine the two (minus the part on strings in the second link). Then I was going to talk about some of the main theories that people are currently hoping could help lead to the theory of everything. With most of the emphasis on string theory, since it is what I know better, then talking a little while on Loop Quantum theory (something i need to research a bit more before i finally leave to feel real comfortable to discuss its details even at a somewhat basic level) Then Finally I was going to end with what it would mean if we would find the grail of physics, and what predicted time frames of this would be. So to summarize right now it would be -Intro -Preview up to 3rd Conflict -String Theory -Loop Quantum Theory -What TOE would mean -Predictions on When -Questions Again any advice on what should be included or not included or on just how to give a lecture that won't make people fall asleep would be great. I plan on doing a power point to accompany my speech.
