brian greene explains superstring theory

24 April 2008 at 7:42 pm (science, ted)

he uses non-technical language to explain this most technical of subjects and i almost understand it now.  i understand the words he is saying, but the concepts are so big and foreign to me that my imagination struggles to grasp them.  i will watch it again soon.  wanted to share it with you because i found it so fascinating.

from the ted website: “In clear, nontechnical language, string theorist Brian Greene explains how our understanding of the universe has evolved from Einstein’s notions of gravity and space-time to superstring theory, where minuscule strands of energy vibrating in 11 dimensions create every particle and force in the universe. (This mind-bending theory may soon be put to the test at the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva.)

this is part of a performance of swan lake by the acrobats of the great chinese state circus.  the thing that gets me is that some of the moves look impossible.
