Discussion of theories involving time as a dimension, time travel, relativity, branes, and so on, usually applying to the "real" universe which we live in.

Particles as worps in space time

Postby anderscolingustafson » Sat Jan 29, 2011 12:45 am

I know that in string theory it is believed that all of the smallest of particles are strings and that the difference between the particles is how the strings vibrate. Could it be possible though that instead of each particle being a string that it could be a warp in space time? Is it possible that the difference between particles is what directions the warps in space time face instead of the way the strings vibrate? Is it also possible that not only gravity but all forces are caused by a warp in a particular dimension? Could this be an alternative to strings?

There is actually some theories that treat the other fundamental forces besides gravity as curvatures in some other dimensions.
But I forgot what those theories are

Some theories are fundamentally write and they provide the desired results, but there are others that are just myths.
