At MKaku.org, we're soon to be launching a new monthly publication written by Theoretical Physicist Dr. Michio Kaku.

We'd like PF member feedback on the most fascinating areas in Physics today. Fill out the questionnaire and you will receive a free issue of the new publication when it debuts, as well as a chance to win a signed copy of Dr. Kaku's new book, Parallel Worlds.

You talk of metaphysic... Sure we understand very well mechanism, but there is alot more to discover within the range of mathematical physic, I am sure of it.

Concerning the most fascinating area of modern physics, the quest for the Theory of Everything and the proposed candidates for that theory (LQG, string theory, etc) is a very interesting field of study currently.

That's a lot of physics to cover; especially since this an opinion based query you posted. It would be interesting to read a magazine with suh diverse topics though. :smile:

Cosmology tells us that only about five percent of the matter in the universe is baryonic. To even speak of a theory of everything, when we are clueless about 95% of the stuff in the universe, is misguided at best.

What does that mean when matter is said to be 'baryonic'? I'm not familiar with the term.
