    Just curious, what colors do people associate with String Theory? Give reasons please.

    I picked yellow. Just because, for some reason, when I think of strings floating around in space, I see them as being yellow strings. Kinda weird.

    Green, because of brian :tongue2:

    Red because althought I do not understand string theory I think it has something to do with the curvature of space (which I visualise as red).

    black because I don't know the math behind it and thus its just an empty blackness that i'd like to shed some light on once I learn some more advanced math and physics

    That's funny.

    I picked 'other'. I see my strings in multicolor...kinda like candy sticks.

    I picked blue. No reason, I just like blue. Perhaps we should ask Holly's cats what color strings they like too :-)

    :eek: we've got seven votes and ALL for a different color!!
    conclusion: there is no general color association to strings.. :(

    I find this all oddly strange, almost to the extent of distrubing. I'm liking the answers you guys are getting. Specifically the Green and the :confused: red space :confused: ? Hehe, Bob, why don't you see it as black?

    I don't see black as it is not a colour :tongue2: . It is the absense of light.

    But seriously (if possible) I see red because that is how I imagine the nets and structural lines of 3-D shapes. Sometimes green but normally red. Black or blue is normally the spacing but I don't understand the string theory yet so that is my excuse. :tongue2:

    The strings are violet. Further, they extend all over, then double back, like a porcupine's coat that got bent. Then the whole thing turns inside out, like an inside-outted ball, and the strings lengthen to infinity inside the ball. However, this is one of those finite infinities.

    Whatever you're eating (or other appropriate verb)...can I get some of it ?

    I chose red, but actually it's more of a pinkish color.
     
  15. Jul 9, 2004 #14
    Gokul, there are too finite infinities. That Cantor person said so, just the other night. I thought up the porcupine bit, though.

    I dun see colors so well, so I usually don't associate anything with them... Therefore, I'll abstain.

    Ah. You see, I see the structural lines as blue.
    Please, somebody help this poor girl.

    Everything looks pretty diverse so far. Tell your friends about this post everybody. I am pretty interested in what people think.

    Oh ok. That is a bit strange to me.

    Violet. I don't know why though.

    Yellow, with a greenish tinge for me.

    I don't associate any color with string theory. I have no idea what string theory is. It sounds whacky.
