I’m a science-buff at heart. In college, I took 2 semesters of calculus, physics, and organic chemistry each. Admittedly, I skipped out on P-Chem (Physical Chemistry) after starting down the computer science path (and eventually becoming a Java programmer for IBM), but I still love and miss studying natural science. I find myself most fascinated by String Theory…and in particular “M-Theory”. It attempts to explain the essence of all time and matter, and defines our existence over 11 dimensions.
String theory is a developing theory in particle physics that attempts to concile quantum mechanics and general relativity. It is a contender for the theory of everything (TOE), a manner of describing the known fundamental forces and matter in a mathematically complete system. The theory has yet to make testable experimental predictions, which a theory must do in order to be considered a part of science.
