Probably a bit abstract,but I was thinking if 4D closed strings could form knots? I mean if a closed string in 4-dimensional spacetime can be considered an unknot and a knot polynomial be associated with every closed string. I also wondered that if the fundamental strings vibrate in the knotted state, their harmonics could represent something entirely different!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
