We’ve taken a complex theory and broken it down in the easiest way so it’s understandable for everyone.
Stephen Hawking, arguably the greatest physicist and theoretical physicist of the 21st century, always dreamed of developing a theory of everything which was illustrated in his book and a motion picture movie. String theory is a candidate for the theory of everything.
String theory is a theory that combines the four forces of nature… Electromagnetism, gravity, strong nuclear forces, and weak nuclear forces.
An easy way to understand the four forces is as follows;
Let’s imagine you’re in your living room, but you have a metal ceiling. If you reached up and placed a magnet on the ceiling, it would stay there because of electromagnetism, while gravity would try to bring it down to the center of the earth. You can look at them as two opposite pulling forces.
String theory does however require higher dimensions, seven more to be exact. If you consider ”time” a physical dimension, then string theory would require us to believe in eleven dimensions in total.
This may sound impossible, but leading physicists don’t have much of an arguments against it and are trying to figure out a way to detect higher dimensions.
It seems great on the surface, but without testing every aspect of it, string theory remains as just that, a theory.
Physicists and scientists will continue to try and solve the theory of everything, but it could take some time before that happens, maybe not even in our lifetime unless we get help from SIAs and then we could have a theory of everything immediately.
