String Theory
    #3421762 - 11/29/04 01:57 AM (12 years, 6 months ago)

Someone mentioned a little about this to me, earlier today. It made me curious.

To start, the theory is saying that atoms are not the smallest unit, that it goes beyond that to corks and then to vibrating strings. Basicly scientist are trying to finish the theory of realitivity. With string theory it creates 4th dementions and parallel universes. and proves them through mathmatical equations.

Now, I remember a plenty of trips where I have been engulfed in geometric patterns and also I've had plenty of reoccuring 'visits.' I've talked to friends and such, and they have visits from the same kinds of characters. gnomish/alien/discolored creatures. It makes me think a lot about psychadelics and this 4th 'dimension.' The reoccuring visuals and beings have been the same for the entire lifespan of the psychadelic drugs.

I want to read more about this and discover more about this...it very much interests me. Not just the connection between psychadelics and this 4th dimension, but the 4th dimension alltogether.

There's also a technique called 'astral projection.' By a meditation of sorts, you leave your physical body and move to your 'astral' body. Anyone ever try this? Anyone ever try this under the influence of a hallucinagen?

Anyone care to add? Argue? Enlighten? :P

I'm up for anything...my ears are wide open. I want to learn. :smile:

Not exactly. String theory hasn't been proven yet, hence it is still theory. It uses mathematical equations to explain these other dimensions, but does not prove their existence.

well im not entirely too sure about this topic however i think the whole basis of it is saying that atoms and other even smaller particles arent units at all. Just magnitudes of displacement on some dimensional string. The atoms are energy which is just the vibration of the string. The string is some fundamental factor like time, or energy or something. i dont really know though i think its an interesting topic and i also would like to learn about it if someone has any information on it.

I see. It's still pretty crazy. Do you happen to have any sorces that you could reccomend to perhaps help in my quest for knowledge? :P

The theories behind it all are very thought provoking and pretty cool. I've always tried to kind of develop my own theories, but the 'proof' behind it makes it that much more intruiging to me.

Read some of Stephen Hawking's work. He can explain this sort of stuff in relatively simple terms which are easy to understand. I recommend either The Universe in a Nutshell or A Brief History of Time.

I will most definitely check these out. I appreciate your comments. :smile:

I'm just starting to explore my spirituality a bit more, ironically this is in my sober days. I took advantage of psychadellics, but that will no longer happen. Spiritual guidence will be the 'reason' for my next trip...but I intend on a lot of preperation/clensing/research before I embark on this journey, as I want it to be a special one...I think reading about a forth dimension or even realities hidden inside our own could help me answer some of my questions and definitely help me along my path.

I like reading collective opinions and theories on WHY things are the way they are and the WHAT IF other things were out there and able to interact with us? Knowledge is gained from every response. :smile:

Or whatevers inbetween the elctrons, which so far is "nothing".

Protons, neutrons, pions, quarks, and other sub-atomic particles are
"smaller" than electrons. Having said that I will make the disclaimer that
it is not accurate to talk about the "size" of an electron or other atomic
and sub-atomic particles. They do not have a "size" in the sense that a
bowling ball or baseball do. How "big" the atomic/sub-atomic particle is
depends upon how it is measured and its surroundings. For example, an
electron in a hydrogen atom has a different size than a "free" electron. The
reason for this is that in quantum mechanics, which is the only correct way
to discuss electrons and other "smaller" particles, the term
"size" loses its meaning -- in fact it has no meaning.
Scientists, teachers, and texts continue to associate the behavior of
atomic and sub-atomic species (I will not even call them particles, because
that too is not rigorously defined either) with familiar concepts from
classical, Newtonian mechanics -- like size, position, speed etc. These
atomic / sub-atomic particles behave paradoxically when described in
classical terms. An electron is surely a "wave" because it can be
diffracted, and that is clearly a property of "waves". But electrons can be
"scattered" deflected like little bullets, and that is clearly a property of
particles.
To the best of my readings into the matter (at varying levels of
mathematical sophistication), the particle / wave duality of electrons,
photons, etc. has not really been resolved. Young's double slit experiment
(look up on some web sites) has not, or maybe cannot be explained.

Pick up a book by Brian Greene, called "The Elegant Universe".

It is all about string theory.
