I have never heard of anyone talk about the knotting of superstrings? Is it reasonable to imagine huge collections tangled superstrings stuck together in knots? Would these be huge clusters of knots withing 10 dimensions (in a static state)?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I do realize that I am arguably sitting on a huge cluster of knotted strings called my chair, but this give me a completely different picture of what superstrings might look like - and behave.

For example, over distances of an atoms diameter and larger, there are really only three dimensions. But strings are 10^-34 meters in length and exist in 10 or 11 dimensions. Would huge knot clusters have 3D properties while still having tiny pathways into some invisible hyperdimensional 10-D space?

Thanks
