Brian GreeneAlbert Einstein spent the latter part of his life pursuing a "single, all encompassing theory of the universe" to describe all of nature's forces. Brian Greene, who is probably best-known for his NOVA specials, is on this path this path of discovery. He says that achieving this may require a whole new way of looking at the world around us.

A professor of mathematics and physics at Columbia University, Greene explains string theory, the concept that minuscule filaments of energy vibrating in 11 dimensions, tucked into the fabric of space, "create every particle and force in the universe." String theory fills in the gaps of Newtonian physics, especially in regards to how gravity works.

Einstein's Unification Theory depends on the existence of extra dimensions, which contain these filaments. Don't miss this peek into the "ultramicroscopic landscape" of our reality — and our upcoming show with string theorist S. James Gates!

Hume: A Treatise of Human Nature (1739) "In every system of morality, which I have hitherto
met with, I have always remarked, that the author proceeds for some time
in the ordinary ways of reasoning, and establishes the being of a God,
or makes observations concerning human affairs; when all of a sudden I
am surprised to find, that instead of the usual copulations of
propositions, is, and is not, I meet with no proposition that is not connected with an ought, or an ought not. This change is imperceptible; but is however, of the last consequence. For as this ought, or ought not,
expresses some new relation or affirmation, 'tis necessary that it
should be observed and explained; and at the same time that a reason
should be given; for what seems altogether inconceivable, how this new
relation can be a deduction from others, which are entirely different
from it"

Religion is the theory of everything. Believe me!

Could the idea that these strings need extra room to vibrate be wrong maybe that these strings vibrate at all create the extra dimensions; that is, they create the space between them making Super String Theory back ground independent?

LETS NOT PLACE VALUE ON EACH OTHER... FOR EACH SOUL UPON THIS EARTH,
HAS ITS OWN UNIQUE VALUE... AND MEANS OF CONTRIBUTION...
