Universe Structure

  1. Oct 2, 2007 #1
    I am a Sophomore (not the college type) and I know next to nothing about the math that is involved here. But this is my career goal, so I am studying it as much as I possibly can.

    Now what I want to know is how to unify the M-Theory and Quantum Mechanics models of universe formation and structure. What I've read says that strings are bound to a membrane (at least the open strings are) and that when two membranes touch, they make another membrane with a universe on/ in it (which ever way that works). And Quantum Mechanics says that for every possibility creates a new universe. So how would these two methods of universe creation go together? Of course string theory hasn't been completely finished yet, I just wanted to know if this part had been done yet.

    I don't know the math, but I worked out a way that it may work. Say you have one string. It is tied to a membrane, and all its counterparts from parallel universes are next to it. So they bump in to each other, which explains the way particles suddenly change direction or teleport. So since all the universes are occupying the same space, I guess weird stuff would happen, and they would either switch places, or bump each other. And the reason we don't see all the strings is because one of the dimensions they vibrate in has something to do with the universe they are in/ causes everything to be separated into universes. So all these universes have the same laws, just different histories.

    And the different membranes have different laws of physics.

    Am I just a total idiot who wants to know what's going on? Or am I actually on to something?

    P.S. Are the strings tied to the membrane or actually inside it?
