Given that string theory is built on the idea of one-dimensional entities, which seems much too "nice" given the general fuzziness of interpreting quantum mechanics, would it be possible for a universal theory to be based on a non-integer number of dimensions? I basically know nothing of mathematical formalism, but it was just a thought I had, and I was wondering if it even made any sense or could even be theoretically possible?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
