I just recently started studying the string theory and I don't understand one major part. I can't find anything about what the strings exactly are. I think I have an idea from what I've read but I'm not sure. Now if anyone is considering answering this you have to know that I'm just a highschool student so if you could explain it in a way I would understand that would really help. I can usually catch on pretty quick but still if you could explain it in a simple way it would really help.
