Heralded from the 21st Century: String Theory
I know not how, may find their way to the minds of humanity in Some Dimensionality, and may stir up a race of rebels who shall refuse to be confined to limited Dimensionality.” from Flatland, by E. A. Abbott It … Continue reading

IN Search of Mandelstam’s Holy Grail
There are two posts that reflect the purpose of this post today. One is Clifford’s linked through Lee Smolin’s comment and the other, at Backreaction. Good Physics is Conflict A lot of you may never understand the significance of the … Continue reading

Finiteness of String Theory and Mandelstam
It might be that the laws change absolutely with time; that gravity for instance varies with time and that this inverse square law has a strength which depends on how long it is since the beginning of time. In other … Continue reading

Quantum Computation and Evolution?
We used to think that if we knew one, we knew two, because one and one are two. We are finding out that we must learn a great deal more about ‘and’.” Sir Arthur Eddington (18821944) Of course a lot … Continue reading
"Lead by Physics," Faces the "Trouble With Physics"
The Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) at Brookhaven National Laboratory is a worldclass scientific research facility that began operation in 2000, following 10 years of development and construction. Hundreds of physicists from around the world use RHIC to study what … Continue reading

What’s on the Condense Matter Theorist’s Mind?
The Theory of Everything Prof. Robert B. Laughlin The crystalline state is the simplest known example of a quantum , a stable state of matter whose generic lowenergy properties are determined by a higher organizing principle and nothing else. Robert … Continue reading

Ask yourself this? What is the new kernel to be, if we had for one moment presented the opportunities for the using Riemann hypothesis, and contained the very idea as a philosophy presented within this blog? A VIEW OF MATHEMATICS … Continue reading

Is the door open to the eruption of the sociology of knowledge?
Nobody really thinks about the subtle perceptions that can make their way into the scientist’s mind? Do they? While, I had talked about the quiet places we like to go to find that peace of mind, it might be different … Continue reading

What the M really stands for
A more serious problem: The name Mtheory is slightly ambiguous. It can be used to refer to both the particular elevendimensional theory which Witten first proposed, or it can be used to refer to a kind of Uber theory which … Continue reading
Laughlin, Reductionism, Emergence
I am still operating from the idea of XtraDimensions. What motivating force would have brought such a quantum gravity group together and the aspect it might have spoken from? What mysterious forces motivates all these ladies/ gentlemen? Everyone knows that … Continue reading
