  1. I have always wondered how these people who think about such principles are then able to switch their mind to the mundane such as a grocery list, sorting laundry, and such.

  2. Here's a video that represents a fresh take on the creation / evolution debate and is something I am sure you will find thought-provoking.

  3. What is a string made from? What is a particle made from? What is a force made from?
    These abstract entities may mimic reality but they do not begin to help us understand the true nature of reality.

  4. I’m 4 mins in. But Einstein just had to invent a particle called a bosun to explain how an object exerts gravitational influence on another.

    Maybe I need to study the theory in depth and mathematically to see what the actually said.
    The 2D representation relying, ironically enough, on gravity in the 3rd dimension to help us intuit the effect of curved space just doesn’t do anything for me. Because it’s so fake.
    Ok so in 3D sure space can be curved.
    Now tell me how that ‘transmits’ gravitational forces?
    Sorry Brian!

  5. I have a question. Why is going for a UNIFIED theory an assumed goal?
    Why not have everything different?
    Where does this assumptive end goal come from?
    Is it a deep spiritual logical / intuition that the nature of reality is ONENESS?

  6. How does one make sense of nonsense? At least the video says at the beginning that no one of this is true or not. Einstein was wrong about everything. He invited nothing, and holds no patents.

  7. 3:03 I'm rolling on the floor, wait… wait I can't get up. Gravity is pulling me into a circle that doesn't exist. Warped brain power should get me out! SHAZAM! A disk of nothing space did the trick. 3:32 I just tested here on my floor. It does work because I did get up! 5:30 Amazing facts and non-disputable logic.

  8. I am not a physicist, but a musician. What are plucking those strings, or are you saying they vibrate on their own? I know you are saying that their geometry my dictate the atomic structure, but why are the strings vibrating already? Is that a dimensional artifact… I mean is the wind blowing the horn a constant?

  10. Sir the beautiful thing about The Cosmos, The Universe, The Solar Systems, The 8-9 rocks orbiting The Sun, The 3rd Rock with 1 moon … is that it's perpetual miraculous harmony equilibrium perfection … we can witness on the surface of the earth within our DNA designed "out-fits" bags of mostly water … filled with all of the elements of the cosmos … so we are made of stardust which is EVERTHING that was will be expanding stretching out, laced out like infinite numbers of "STRINGS" into infinite!

    A fascinating spectacle witnessed projected … as only "c" with "m" into the silver screens within our minds!

    We are the only beings with the capacity to split atoms and split everything into +'s and -'s, ying and yang, up and down, male and female!

    Before the beginning there was NO THINGS pure darkness no shapes or figures.

    0 => 1 Big Bang = Blasting and scattering “that” into One Thing filled with an infinite number of chaotic bits of infinity of things = The Beginning of Everything = Cosmos = Singularity = Universe = GOD => Everything coalescing congealing into Harmony Equilibrium => = Sun = Earth = DNA = Earthlings we, you, me, flea, bumblebee, tree, wallabies, manatee, and chimpanzees is 1 Single Family!

    Earth + Sun = Us:

    Sun Energy + Earth Inorganic materials “periodic table” + Atmosphere = Organic Carbon Based >=> Amino Acids <=> 1 DNA ⇌ 1 Cell Organisms are true Earthling <=> Plants Cells v Animal Cells <=> Dinosaurs <=> Boggers => Us.

  11. Big Bang Created "=" Us … yielded "⇌" the Birth of Relativity! "=" means absolute equal = singularity means … Sun Energy + Earth Inorganic materials “periodic table” + Atmosphere = Organic Carbon Based >=> Amino Acids <=> 1 DNA ⇌ 1 Cell Organisms are true Earthling <=> Plants Cells v Animal Cells <=> Dinosaurs <=> Boggers => Us which is where relativity begins

    The Mathematics of You, Me, We, Amoebae, Flea, Bumblebee, Tree, Wallaby, Manatee, Chimpanzee = Me!

    DNA evidence proves we are 100% Pure Whole Earth, Moon, Sun and Star Dust … as are all Earthlings are = Us!

  12. This guy would make a fabulous university professor. I mean of the traditional type, not the type that seems popular today.

  13. God says "Worlds without number have I created." And it's based on obedience, which keeps order. And how can there be obedience with intelligence? I would exhort anyone who understands these simple principles to read the Book of Mormon. The answers and understanding are explained in simple form. Truth never changes.

  14. The String Theory (actually a mathematical construct, not a theory at all). ST like most theoretical physics is as imaginary as religion.

  15. Where on earth that it's  sitting on the gravitational wave that is inaccessible to anyone? None! Therefore the existence of gravitational wave must be a bluff! Einstein's famous equation, E=mc^2 is wrong otherwise garbage also can be used to make nuclear bombs as long as it is matter or it has mass. Energy and matter can't interchange one another according to Einstein's famous equation. One must have photons before one can emit out photons. Photons are particles and they have mass. All forms of EMWs including light and heat are dynamic photons per volume per time in different saturations. Therefore the law of conservation of matter, the law of conservation of energy and the law of conservation of charge must always be true in any conditions.  Since string theory doesn't comply to the law of conservation of matter,  the law of conservation of energy and the law of conservation of charge, therefore it must be wrong. If you are interested in real discoveries, I would recommend you to read my book, The Unification Theory – Volume One and you will be amazed with lots of new, interesting discoveries. In God I trust.

  16. I place more trust in the proven fundamentals of vel-cro theory myself because no matter what anybody says to the matter where I go..there I am. facts

  17. String theory is not answering the original question. If you do have to step outside the known dimensions then your string theory is no longer about reality

  18. Quantum field is more fundamental than space, time, big bang/big bounce, inflation, dark matter/energy etc. QF can simulate conscious intelligent 'observer', collapsing the field to produce particles/strings, fine tuned to eliminate randomness, achieving determinism, creating the universe and life with perfection and with probability one, implying divine purpose.

  19. Kind of answered the question: If they were any other number we wouldn't be here, so the only reality where we'd even be having this discussion is the reality where those numbers lined up perfectly.

  20. Why not first explain gravity empirically before you go off on another unexplainable and dubious assertion. Keep those grants a comin'

  21. this was very interesting, but it sounded to me like a brilliant fellow who made one of the most simple mistakes that is known to man: assuming that if we can't measure where the energy went, that it must have gone into a different dimension. There are way too many assumptions that this reasoning follows. Many a man has been unable to measure where energy went. That does not prove that the energy went into a different dimension. That might simply mean that his/our instruments simply can't detect all the energy that is in our known dimensions. even brilliant people make stupid human logic mistakes too. I'm happy to know that even brilliant people can be so simply mistaken too.

  22. I think theres a simple explanation for this quantum field, it is God, it is his essence in the universe because he is everywhere, we can feel him, our electrons tremble in his presence, therefore he is what he is. The eternal essence of the universe scientist are calling "dark energy" because he is a gigantic field of energy that fills the entire universe. No one can explain that beyond the Higgs boson, the God particle there is something else and it's called "spirit" and that is what God is made of: Eternal Spirit. So don't look no more because only God can tell us everything there is to know. So seek him in spirit and truth and you will understand all.

  23. In this video I explain why so many physicists believe in string theory but that it also comes with a number of problems. It requires the existence of additional dimensions of space (which we do not see), of new particles (which we do not see), and of new fields (leading to deviations from Einstein's general relativity). It has trouble coping with the cosmological constant and the dream that string theory would be a unique theory of everything has failed due to the discovery of the string theory landscape. Sabine Hossenfelder

  24. Exactly, not so much electromagnetism, but a combination of intelligent frequency/sound that follows law. It's a privilege to be able to not follow law. That's what sets us apart. Free Will. We are experiencing and event objectively.

  25. Nikola Tesla said Einstein got it wrong, if i'm not mistaken. Tesla said there is no such thing as space, that everything is energy.

  26. Can space and time swap dimensions, in a pinch of high mass ,or high energy?
    Like going from a normal summersalt to high flying back flip? It's Chicken man!

  27. Unified Strings 21 or 19 Dimensions & Aspects of Spacetime is physics' 'Theory of Everything', yet it falls under the umbrella of GOD=7_4 or FOD=6_4 (on Planet Nestor). See . Atheists hate this.

  28. I agree somewhat with this guy. With the string theory it's quite amazing that it's a quantum deduction of the effect of ray tracing the trajectory across it's shortest route to enable the cross compatible light source from the angle of interruption.

  29. String theory needs to be re-named to String-hypothesis: Zero predictions, zero repeatability, zero falsifiable statements…. ThIs is RELIGION, disguised by some incidentally useful math as science.
    String Theory does NOT exist, it is barely a hypothesis afet more than 20 years in the hands of the smartest on the planet…yes, they have an ego too….

  30. Good speaker BUT…nothing more behind that string(theory should correctly be called hypothesis) has produced exactly zero evidence till now(2019). 11 years and lots of very complicated experiments later, Einstein has been prooved a couple of times more but non extra dim has turned up or anything else!

  31. Even if energy drifts away, it may not be going into another dimension, but more like a chemical discharge or reaction into something else that we can not see or calculate yet. always because it is to small.  So even if energy were to drift away it still wont prove multiple dimensions. —– String theory if true might be cool; I could all of a sudden move into another dimension where I am rich if I were able to manipulate it correctly.  —  But to me its more plausible only one dimension with just smaller reactions that we can not see or calculate yet with todays technology.

  32. Excellent!!! I love Brian Greens explanation on Super-Strings. Actually i am suprised he did. Now we all have to become mature enough understanding that the Strings ARE our thoughts. A thought, a intent , a decision IS indeed a string creating electrons and worlds. Well, actually for gods sake it is a snake biting its tail.
    I guess the hard part is to PROVE it in math – lol.
    Imagine, frontal lobe messing with strings – bored to death – house is full of dust. Did you ever try to clean a house and wonder where all this f…dust come from?
    And, Mr.Green your true talent is explaining highly complex matters to plain people – well done!

  33. I heard these more dimensions ideas were only invented to make the math come out. That came from a very reliable source, Lenard Hofstadter. He's a genius so I think he would know. Then of course when Sheldon claims they are there, he's just defending his research.

  34. The critiques of string theory made in the following books, have yet to be rebutted:
    String theory makes a strong and sweeping prediction: corresponding to every known elementary particle that makes up the Standard Model of particle physics and the fundamental interactions, there exist a supersymmetric counterpart. To date, no supersymmetric particle has been found. String theory also predicts a scalar boson, called the graviton, that mediates gravitation. To date, the graviton has yet to be found.


    Mission rip-off: You are never actually and really ON "Mars". Consider what is REALLY MARS, and learn to think for yourselves.

    Outer "space" involves full inertia, AND it is FULLY INVISIBLE (AND black). Notice that there can be NO direct/FULL/real/true/actual experience of outer space AS IT IS (at all). Outer space entirely and immediately destroys and precludes us and what would otherwise be/constitute our experience of it. SO, importantly and comparatively, FULL INERTIA (outer space) involves NO EXPERIENCE. Outer space has been referred to as "our cosmic habitat". Wake up. How does a person's habitat totally kill and preclude its inhabitants? Outer "space" is the total opposite of our habitat. Think.

    The same thing applies to "Mars". Can you ever experience Mars AS IT IS? NO, YOU CAN'T. If you were to attempt to experience Mars (seen, felt, AND touched), you and all of your experience would be precluded AND permanently eliminated/destroyed. So, if you pump in air on a section of what you think is then really "Mars", you are not experiencing Mars; as it is impossible for you to truly, actually, and really experience Mars (at all, AS IT IS). So, you then have a totally unnatural, fabricated, and totally bizarre experience THAT YOU HAVE TOTALLY CREATED/MANUFACTURED. Is life that fundamentally and truly miserable as it is here on Earth !??!

    It is clearly proven/demonstrated that this "mission" should not proceed.

    Stand up and look down at the Earth/ground. This involves FULL GRAVITY and FULL EXPERIENCE, with FULL DISTANCE in/of space as it is seen, felt, AND touched. That is what is called ACTUAL reality.

    The body is fully visible, and the Earth/ground is fully visible. The eye is invisible, and the space around us is invisible. (The eye is the body.) The ultimate unification (AND understanding) of physics/physical experience/physical reality balances being and experience. There is no getting around this. In fact, truth, reality, AND nature/natural experience go hand in hand. If we walk away from reality, reality walks away from us.

  36. This is all fantasy. No science to it. These idiots are having a corrosive influence on how the kids are understanding science. Instead of evidence they are pumping out maths magic and voodoo.

  37. He is a great communicator, and fun to listen to, I love it,
    the only problem is that string theorie is a lot of rubbish, nothing at all ever confirmed in the lhc, only the higgs, nothing else,
    forget about string, move on people to something else, we have already wasted to much money on nothing, string theory is dead, sounded good but is a bunch of woo, woo

  38. Although I understand his arguments I am a person who believes that electro/magnetism is what the world is about

  39. If energy goes to another dimension but that dimension is just something we can't see because it is so small the energy will still be right in front of you and measurable I would think. Like the ants on the cable. If you threw a glob of mud at the cable and it stuck, on closer inspection the mud is still there. I must be missing something.

  40. What this man is speaking of It sounds to me to be That he is just re-describing (Anti-Matter) Because only anti-matter will go off and disappear into some other deminsion And as for the 10 deminsions I don't know where he gets that He doesn't explain where the first three deminsions act or in other words interact to make up our own existing deminsion to start with so that we can know where he's coming from , with these other 10 deminsions And qwuarts are just theory and we don't really know what they are made of or if they are , much less even the strings that he is talking about Now I think I could describe what is actually in the very center of matter What holds it together But if I did then that would just give away what I've been working on for a very long time But I don't think it's strings I think it's something else And lf scientist think that by making up something new they can make it stick But if they would only stick with the explainations that already exist They would reach their mathamatical solutions that they are trying to reach With less problems Because nature would gradually solve it for you With expirementations of course !!! …That's the way I have solved all of mine At least some of them

  41. It appears that Brian Greene may have found a niche subset of society like the esteemed Dr Sheldon Cooper has where Life and many of it's participants will allow one to just wander around behind the little animals while collecting a salary just because they don't really understand what your talking about although it sounds impressive to them, nonetheless.
    Are you even sure what Quarks are actually made of?
    I believe that being a Confirmed Vaginatarian is a much more Noble profession.

  42. Psuedo science for dumdums…. the answer was drummed up by Freemasons. The sun and Moon are very local not 93 million miles away. Gravity is fake. Einstein was a pedo and a nutcase. So was the Newton and Gallalao and Copernicus. All bullshit

  43. Thank you for sharing this awesome info. Not an area of my interest originally, BUT I've felt that there are more dimensions than we initially see, and so it is most satisfying to get this information clarified it actually makes it easier even on a spiritual level. Thank you very much.
