I know that as inexperienced as I am with this subject as well as higher math, I shouldn't be challenging those that are more experienced than me. However, just going by instinct, doesn't anyone else feel like I do that all of this multi-dimensional stuff, strings, p-branes, supersymmetry, fractional spin, et cetera, are missing the big picture or possibly even the gallery, and are products of us making things more complicated than they really are? I mean "simplicity is the ultimate sophistication," (-Leonardo da Vinci) and all this stuff seems just so sci-fi that it's hard for me to believe that this is the way it really is. I'm not trying to insult the whole forum or the entire physics community or anything, because I admire and share the same interest in answering the same questions, but I can't imagine that the universe is this unexpectedly complex. I would expect the secrets of the universe that we are trying to uncover would be more simple, brilliant, kind of like Dan Brown-ian if you know what I mean. Unfortunately, I have no ToE to propose, I'm just a 15 year old looking at the feild and the subject from a more philosophical view tonight.
