What is String Theory?

What is String Theory?
For the past decade, physicists all over are focusing their attention on string theory. But what is string theory? A simple explanation to string theory is that it is the basic fundamental building block for everything. When all the matter in the universe is broken down to its most basic component, it will be tiny particles that look like strings; String Theory. That basically is the most simple answer to what String Theory is. But going one step further is where things get really complicated. When we look an object, we know it is made up of molecules. According to string theory, these quarks (including the electron) can still be broken up into smaller units. What string theory suggests is that the whole universe is made up of these strings. Based on the math, for these strings to exists, the universe has to be made up of not just three dimensions, but ten dimensions.

Nothing Is Solid & Everything Is Energy – Scientists Explain The World of Quantum Physics It has been written about before, over and over again, but cannot be emphasized enough. The world of quantum physics is an eerie one, one that sheds light on the truth about our world in ways that challenge the existing framework of accepted knowledge. What we perceive as our physical material world, is really not physical or material at all, in fact, it is far from it. This has been proven time and time again by multiple Nobel Prize (among many other scientists around the world) winning physicists, one of them being Niels Bohr, a Danish Physicist who made significant contributions to understanding atomic structure and quantum theory.

How the Universe Responds to Your Energetic Vibration, Explained EmailShare HJ: The universe is not static — it is dynamically responding to your every thought and emotion, the combination of which is known as your energetic vibration. Despite what mainstream science might have you believe, we actually live in an intelligent, aware universe that is literally programmed to be a mirror of our the content of our mind and the vibration of our emotional state. Many of you are likely familiar with the Law of Attraction, which is but one of many universal laws (like gravity and the laws of phsyics in a certain sense) that govern our existence. The Law of Attraction is in large part responsive directly to your personal vibration. If it is not clear to you how this is so, then you are in for a treat, because the article below outlines the mechanism of how this operates.

Proof That the Human Body is a Projection of Consciousness Brandon West, ContributorWaking Times In this article we will explore how your body is a holographic projection of your consciousness, and how you directly influence that hologram and thus have complete control over the physical health of your body. We will also specifically explore the exact mechanism behind this principle, and don’t worry, I will provide scientific evidence so let your rational mind be at ease. But first … how is this even possible? Human Thought Determines Reality One of the key principles of quantum physics is that our thoughts determine reality.

Captive Snake With No Male Companion Gives Birth, Again (ST. LOUIS) — For the second time in two years, a captive snake in southeast Missouri has given birth without any interaction with a member of the opposite sex. Officials at the Missouri Department of Conservation’s Cape Girardeau Conservation Nature Center say a female yellow-bellied water snake reproduced on her own in 2014 and again this summer. The snake has been living in captivity, without a male companion, for nearly eight years. An intern who cares for the snake found the freshly laid membranes in July.

Do Parallel Universes Interact With Each Other? (Video) Parallel universes exist and interact with one another, according to researchers at Griffith University in Queensland, Australia who found that our universe is one of a “gigantic number of worlds” that all collide with one another. We look at the theory of “Many Interacting Worlds,” in this Lip News clip with Elliot Hill and Mark Sovel. Newest Lip News playlist: BUZZSAW interview clips –

Unusual quantum effect discovered in earliest stages of photosynthesis Quantum physics and plant biology seem like two branches of science that could not be more different, but surprisingly they may in fact be intimately tied. Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory and the Notre Dame Radiation Laboratory at the University of Notre Dame used ultrafast spectroscopy to see what happens at the subatomic level during the very first stage of photosynthesis. "If you think of photosynthesis as a marathon, we're getting a snapshot of what a runner looks like just as he leaves the blocks," said Argonne biochemist David Tiede.

DNA molecules can 'teleport', Nobel Prize winner claims A Nobel Prize winning biologist has ignited controversy after publishing details of an experiment in which a fragment of DNA appeared to ‘teleport’ or imprint itself between test tubes. According to a team headed by Luc Montagnier, previously known for his work on HIV and AIDS, two test tubes, one of which contained a tiny piece of bacterial DNA, the other pure water, were surrounded by a weak electromagnetic field of 7Hz. Eighteen hours later, after DNA amplification using a polymerase chain reaction, as if by magic the DNA was detectable in the test tube containing pure water. Oddly, the original DNA sample had to be diluted many times over for the experiment to work, which might explain why the phenomenon has not been detected before, assuming that this is what has happened. The phenomenon might be very loosely described as 'teleportation' except that the bases project or imprint themselves across space rather than simply moving from one place to another. What does all of this mean?

e Photographs of Male Relationships in Everyday American Photography From Before the Civil War to the 1950s There was a time in America when two men pictured with their arms wrapped around each other, or perhaps holding hands, weren’t necessarily seen as sexually involved—a time when such gestures could be seen simply as those of intimate friendship rather than homoeroticism. The photographs, spanning from before the Civil War to the 1950s, reveal a lost world. They present men of different ages, classes, and races in a range of settings: posed in photographers' studios, on beaches, in lumber camps, on farms, on ships, indoors and out. They show men comfortably sitting on each other's laps, embracing, holding hands, and expressing their various relationships through countless examples of simple physical contact. Men as Friends
