I have trouble enough navigating 3 dimensions


WARNING *NERD ALERT*

So I ran across this neat little website that explains how to imagine 10 dimensions. I was like wow so my head is going to implode, but after listening to the explainations it really is not that hard to imagine believe it or not. This flash animation that is displayed is actually quite engaging. The website itself is setup to sell a book called "Imagining the tenth dimension". The book I believe is trying to give a basic understanding of how string theory works.
So what is string theory? Well seeing as I do not have a degree in advanced physics I don't think I could give you a complete explaination, but I can give you a basic understanding of it, but first a little background (oh yeah I love giving background information). Lets start with the unified field theory.

Unified Field Theory is the theoretical explaination of how the 4 fundamental forces in physics react to each other. Those forces would be Strong nuclear force, weak nuclear force, Electromagnetic force, and gravitation force. Einstein tried to bridge his General Relativity Theory with that of eltromagnetism, but was never able to do so (if anyone has any free time you can try to give it a go yourself, I would but chose not too ;-P). Because this answer has been so elusize to physicists many theories have sprung up to try to explain this relationship.

One of the most popular theories currently is that of string theory. String Theory is a branch of the more general discipline of physics known as particle physics which has to do with the interactions of subatomic particles or the pieces that make up the atom such as electrons, protons, and neutrons. String theory tries to explain the interations of these subatomic particles not as particles, but as strings or 1-dimensional p-branes. In addition to explain this theory additional theories need to be used such as quantum gravity and Supersymmetry. Now proving either one of these does not necessarily prove string theory becuase these theories can exist outside string theory, which makes proving the theory quite difficult. Another problem proving string theory is that it is based on approximations and not exact solutions. As scientists delve deeper into theory and are able to create more precise experiments hopefully this will go on to either prove the theory or disprove it and point to a better theory.

Another interesting part of String theory is that of Dualities. Again not being an expert I cannot properly explain the intricacies, but there are multiple versions of string theories 5 including additional unstable bosonic theory. The first 5 all include 10 dimensions while the bosonic has around 26 dimensions. What the duality went to prove is that all of the theories were just different mathematical models proving the same phenomena. There are basically 2 different dualites T-duality and S-Duality. These different explain how each one of the versions relate to each other.

The eventual point of all of these theories brings us back to trying to help scientists prove the unfied field theory or The Theory of Everything. I am not sure what the eventual discovery will lead to, but the more we learn the closer we are to discovering how everything works. Maybe it will help use discover how the universe was born, or why. It could help us explain if there are parralel universes, if wormholes exist, and help us disover dark matter and blackholes. Who know only time will tell. What do you think?
