The jump from conventional field theories of point-like objects to a theory of one-dimensional objects has striking implications. The vibration spectrum of the string contains a massless spin-2 particle: the graviton. Its long wavelength interactions are described by Einstein’s theory of General Relativity. Thus General Relativity may be viewed as a prediction of string theory! Author Unknown
We understand I think the relevance in regards ot the cosmological views that GR helps us understand in the curvatures inherent as an expression of the cosmos.
What we may have trouble with is the value we may assign such curvatures taken down to the quantum regime. This may seem incompatible, yet, the dynamical nature of the energy is never really that far from speaking from the particle/energy inhernet in nature, as a energy determinant value?
Why would you treat the quantum realm any different then you would the cosmological one, if the assumption is that GR is predicted?
I like to think of the “roots and the rings of history” here so that you may see the comparative value of thinking of the “building blocks” not so much as “boxes” but as energy values related to the circle.
There really was a reason to fear pathological entities like the Koch coastline and Peano’s monster curve. Here were creations so twisted and distorted that they did not fit into the box of contemporary mathematics. Luckily, mathematics was fortified by the study of the monsters and not destroyed by them. Whatever doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger.
Take the Koch coastline and examine it through a badly focused lens. It appears to have a certain length. Let’s call it 1 unit. Sharpen the focus a bit so that you can resolve details that are ⅓ as big as those seen with the first approximation. The curve is now four times longer or 4 units. Double the resolution by the same factor. Using a focus that reveals details 1/9 the first focus gives us a coastline 16 times longer and so on. Such an activity hints at the existence of a quantifiable characteristic.
To be a bit more precise, every space that feels “real” has associated with it a sense of distance between any two points. On a line segment like the Koch coastline, we arbitrarily chose the length of one side of the first iterate as a unit length. On the Euclidean coordinate plane the distance between any two points is given by the Pythagorean theorem
Planck time and what new physics would we have shown once we got down to these lengths? The energy of discernation has deluded us into what was once uncertainty has now QGP idealizations and the inherency of the thinking along side of high energy considerations.
Discretium and continuity are not at odds here just that the “realm of thinking” is limited to the GR suppositons about what the world is in cosmological discretium views? Yet, we know at such levels, the “continuity” of the energy has taken over. The coast lines appear fuzzy, yet in “box counting” it doesn’t seem that way. What are it’s limitations then, when our views meet uncertainty about what discribes the coast line? Shall we now refer to the days, weeks, months, as an energy valuation of the circle, in the trees root and the history it contains?
Pick a “ring/circle” of the tree and tell me what happen during that time?
