  • Published on: 01 March 2018
  • Is String Theory the final solution for all of physic’s questions or an overhyped dead end?

    Love the video but I would like to see a video going into the idea of dimensions beyond our 4 explained

    Careful thinking gravity is derived from closed strings. An argument might be to witch gravity is established from open ended contact between strings. No such contact can be made without a force, and resulting in an opposing force.

    well he got the uncertainty principle incorrect, it's not because we change it by observing

    I have a stupid doubt and a potential solution please help:To see the particles why don't we fire waves of different wavelength from different directions simultaneously and then violently shakes the elementary particles, some of the low energy wavelength would surely hit and reflect right?

    All universe exist as one same points in the same time in an infinite Collapse and expansion no universe can exist without the other remember you can’t separate something from itself or it doesn’t exist your result will always be it doesn’t exist there it’s solve it keep it simple

    Sometimes we get so lost in the belief of existing IN the Universe;we forget that we ARE the Universe.
