  • n. (particle physics) a theory that involves an eleven-dimensional universe in which the weak and strong forces and gravity are unified and to which all the string theories belong

Etymologies

Sorry, no etymologies found.

Examples

  • Bell's theorem, that you refer to, was produced by a man who realized that it was Einstein who proposed a scientific definition of reality and who suggested a possible way to test it (albeit one that, like superstrings or m-theory does not yet seem amenable to testing.)

  • We have relativity and quantum mechanics, some theories which have made steps in showing how they can be reconciled, alethic morphologies like string theory and m-theory which are hotly disputed.

    Bukiet on Brooklyn Books

  • It showed in one fell swoop that all of these other string theories were actually special cases of the more general m-theory case – essentially different manifestations of a more complete theory.

  • In other words we can predict a higgs field, gravitons, dark energy or strings & m-theory, but we expect to be able to prove conclusively at some stage whether they exist or not.

    Please Tell Me What “God” Means

  • Other side effects of m-theory seems to be an infinity (?) of possible multiverses each with a big bang and extremely exotic possible (or do I mean probable?) interconnectivity - absolutely terrible to get your head round!

  • They also use parts of string theory/m-theory, which suggests there are 11 dimensions, including height, width, length and time.

  • The singularity represents the point at which mind really begins to expand into the universe, and is thus the birth of 'proto-God'. hmm this is a hard question, because beyond the singularity, post-humans may have a new perspective on space/time, mortality, and may even be equipped to explore and communicate with the higher dimensions m-theory and thus may experience our "maker" or beings
