I think, pretty much - never mind. I tried to watch Integral's link to the PBS video, but I need to use Ivan's computer with the high-speed connection and that just isn't going to happen any time soon. I have so many questions, even I can't get them sorted out enough to make sensible posts. I can try to find more basic info about LQG and string theory somewhere on the net. Guess I'll first google "LQG for Dummies" first... Also probably "String Theory for Dolts". Once I have that all figured out, I'll be back with some questions. Maybe in my next life I'll be hard-wired for this stuff... (GOOD LORD! WHAT AM I WISHING FOR????) Can anyone guide me to some sites about these two theories where they don't speak Greek? (you know, Greek - like 'sumthinorother diffeomorphism' - What the h*** IS THAT?) Thanx anyway... i should seek professinal help... i marry a nerd and i hang out with him and all his friends who just scramble my brains... YOU'RE ALL OUT TO GET ME, AREN'T YOU???!!! IT'S A CONSPIRACY!!! hmm.... professional help it IS... Is there a 12-step group for physics wives?
