So far, every time there is a problem with string theory, they add a few new dimensions. Reminds me of the celestial spheres of days gone by. There has to be a better explanation, but we have not found it yet.


I've always thought that. String theory really isn't necessary anyway.

Not when it's already mentioned in both M-theory and General Relativity...

No, not really.

M-Theory is one of many string theories. String theories are attempts to reconcile the contradictions between General Relativity and Quantum Theory. Neither string theory in general nor M-Theory in particular are mentioned (or even imagined to exist) in Einstein's (1916) General Relativity.

Ever heard of an Einstein-Rosen Bridge? Or the folding of space?

So the best way for me to fold space around me is go total crazy munchin mince pies and plum pudings by the truckload to build up enough mass so that i can worm my way back in time to when i was a younger slim thing.
is`nt causality a wonderfull thing.
cos then i catch up with where i started to expand to the size of a red giant i can do it all over again,
YIPPEEE, what and excuse for a pig out at christmass :¬))
Are you shure it works that way ??

string theory, err, that wot i use if my shoe laces break

Einstein-Rosen Bridge - I hope they dont have a weight limit on it, otherwise they wont let a red giant sized taxi driver pass over it.

Hiya Vic

Indeed, I am somewhat familiar with both. Not sure what your point is, tho.

C'mon you lot, someone has photoshopped part of the Deathstar out of starwars onto a standard picture of the moon. But of course you all knew that .....

And all this time I thought the DeathMoon was our sword and shield... Well at least it's not haunted, so these guys don't need to be called to do any clean up...

We need something new to panic about. The "fiscal cliff" just does not have the same oomf this time around.. Where are we going to get our daily supply of fear and panic?!?
