To me, one trys to encapsulate all of the following.

M Theory represents eleven dimensions, as a bubble? That's me though. Pelastrian has a very similar perspective All of the physics we know is in there.

One would have to understand how the symmetry arises in the equations?

Calabi-Yau spaces are important in string theory, where one model posits the geometry of the universe to consist of a ten-dimensional space of the form , where M is a four dimensional manifold (space-time) and V is a six dimensional compact Calabi-Yau space. They are related to Kummer surfaces. Although the main application of Calabi-Yau spaces is in theoretical physics,they are also interesting from a purely mathematical standpoint.Consequently, they go by slightly different names, depending mostly on context, such as Calabi-Yau manifolds or Calabi-Yau varieties.

I would advise not to begin by this technical subject. I am not sure it that important any more.

Do you know the recent : "A First Course in String Theory" Barton Zwiebach, Cambridge University Press 2004 ? http://titles.cambridge.org/catalogue.asp?isbn=0521831431

I am not a specialist, but I would advise to begin by this, IMHO very good and up-to-date introductory text.
