|What does a
string look like?
Fig. 1 Graduate level Math
|Not a single example of strings that the theorists illustrate is anything other than 2-D or 3-D! The
mathematicians use the word dimension inconsistently. On the one hand, they say that a string is
mathematically 1-D: it takes a single number to specify a position along a string. On the other they
say that they have trouble seeing one, now referring to physical dimensions (length, width, and
height). They are now alluding to the fact that a string is devoid of width or height. String theorists
use unscientific language to communicate their thoughts. This is the source of most of their
|I don't know about 1-D, Steve!
I can see these circus acrobats hanging
onto something that looks more like 3-D.
|String Theory holds that every particle -- photons, electrons, quarks, protons,
etc., -- is really a vibrating string. However, String Theory also holds that every
string is in turn made of points. This is a circular argument.
