Firstly, I'm new here. I looked around a bit to see if there was another thread about String Theory. Didn't see any so I said what the hey. I certainly hope that this subject hasn't been beatin to death. I'm not a physicist, nor am I overly educated. But I like to think that I understand physics, relativity, and quantum mechanics better than the average bear. To the best of my knowledge. Strings are supposed to be the basic building blocks of everything. They resonate just like the strings on a stringed instrument. And somehow, the way they vibrate contains all the stuff of the universe. (told ya I wasn't very educated) Also, If I understand correctly. There are multiple dimensions that are explained in string theory. Along with the thought that perhaps each string is somehow connected to some sort of a membrane. And that each membrane is a seperate universe unto itself. So anyway, I'd like to hear all of your thoughts. I see that this forum has some educational functions. So if you could provide some for the average joe that is just curious, that would be much appreciated!
