Elaboration on Superstring Theory

  1. Dec 1, 2009 #1
    What is meant when one says that everything we see is the lowest vibrations of the strings (According to String Theory)?

    I understand the very fundamental concepts of this theory, like how it only works in 10 dimensions, but the above statement confuses me.

    The massless modes, or the modes with rest mass=0 if you prefer.
