    Whereas quantum mechanics (or physics), seeks to understand and apply the knowledge of the minuteness of our universe, the theory of relativity seeks to understand and apply the knowledge of the immensity of our universe. But what is the ‘string’ that connects or holds everything together? This is called (believe it or not), ‘String Theory.’

    Think of a stringed instrument that has been tuned by stretching the string under tension. Depending on how the string is plucked and how much tension is in the string, different musical notes will be produced by the string. These musical notes could be said to be excitation modes of the string under tension.

   In a similar manner, in string theory, the elementary particles could be thought of as the “musical notes” or excitation modes of elementary strings. The string theory seeks to bring together particles and relativity by ‘strings’ or bands of energy everywhere within our universe however small or immense.

   A basic principle of science is cause and effect. For every cause there is a corresponding effect. Another way to state this is:

There is a reason for everything.

   Perhaps the reason or reasons for everything are tied to these strings? To illustrate string theory I designed a work that I call, ‘String Theory.’ I share it here with you to follow. What is my reason? What is the cause and what is the effect? Well, the cause is, ‘cuz (cause), I like it and it effects me in a positive way. My intentions are that you have cause to like it and that its effects, affect you in a positive way as well.   🙂

   Standing at a distance you may observe a park during the annual ‘Lilac Festival’ in Rochester, NY Perhaps this view would be ‘relative.’  🙂

   Up closer you may observe by naked eye or under microscope, a lilac bush. Perhaps this would be be paticle or quantumm theory.  🙂

   Connecting the two would be these bands of energy or ‘strings.’  🙂
