What would Einstein think of string theory?

    If you could magically go back in time, and spend two hours with Einstein shortly before he died in 1955, could you explain to him current modern superstring theory? If so, what would he think of it?

    He would say: "I always knew that we can go further with kind of deterministic and geometric theory" He would say: "Gro├čartig!" lol

    String theory is geometric, but AFAIK, its still not deterministic in the sense that Einstein wished.
