The Superstring Mystery -- Theory Of Everything?
In 1979 two scientists met at The Center for Nuclear Research (CERN). These
men\'s names are Michael Green and John Schwarz. John Schwarz had been
working on the Theory of Superstrings/ Theory of Everything. Michael Green
the younger of the two men was studying all research that he could get his
hands on, and was fascinated by the Theory. John Schwarz who had been tired
of the Theory of Superstrings and the Theory of Everything in 1974 saw a new
passion and new data that would be the fuel for Michael and his own
research. Very few other scientists wanted to become involved in the
Theories and left the Theories to the two men. Green and Schwarz found this
perfectly acceptable, because they would now be receiving all credit for
The Old Paradigm is that the universe is made up of protons, neutrons, and
electrons. The New Paradigm states that the universe is not made up of
protons, neutrons, and electrons but rather tiny Superstrings that vibrate
at specific frequencies. ( Like a guitar string.)
Using complicated formula\'s such as E8 X E8 divides in two, in the Big Bang
and creates two identical universes E8 and E8 shadow, this allows the theory
to explain the four forces of nature, and it even indicates a universe of
"shadow matter" that exists in a parallel to our own. The theory also
suggests that our universe evolved out of a higher dimensional space during
the first instances of the Big Bang. What this means is that during the Big
Bang there was an escape of particles and a whole lot of other stuff that
created our universe. This
\'Stuff\' that escaped from the \'bag\' was only half of the equation. This
acting like twins, or as called earlier a parallel universe that in theory
is the same as our own. Evident resistance to the Superstring and Theory of
Everything is the fact that the money needed to build a machine
(Relativistic Klystron Two Beam Accelerator) that will be able to produce
enough energy as at the beginning of creation is near impossible. The coming
of a machine as the RK/TBA may present the last thinkable experiment of this
sort carried out by scientists. The faith that physicists have that the goal
is within reach, is only based on the beauty of their Superstrings Theories.
Should the building of the RK/TBA succeed in producing the energies the
scientists are intending it to, then it will be decided whether the
physicists will find; everything or nothing.
The greatest impact that The Superstring Theories will have on society as a
whole will be a number of things, such as; knowing that we are no longer
alone in the universe and that there may be some other kind of intelligent
life that we may be able to interact with. Also, we may very well be able to
create tiny universes of our own. How you ask, well if we can create or
duplicate the amount of energy needed to create our universe than there may
be a way to create another universe using that technology.

Poe's The Fall of the House of UsherPoe\'s The Fall of the House of Usher The Fall of the House of Usher is definitely a piece written in Poeís usual style; a dark foreboding tale of death and insanity filled with imagery, allusion, and hidden meaning. It uses secondary meanings and underlying themes to show his beliefs and theories without actually addressing them. It convinces us without letting us know weíre being convinced, and at the same time makes his complex thoughts relatively clear. On the literal level the story is abou
The Chaos TheoryThe Chaos Theory Where Chaos begins, classical science ends. Ever since physicists have inquired into the laws of nature, the have not begun to explore irregular side of nature, the erratic and discontinuous side, that have always puzzled scientists. They did not attempt to understand disorder in the atmosphere, the turbulent sea, the oscillations of the heart and brain, and the fluctuations of wildlife populations. All of these things were taken for granted until in the 1970\'s some American an
Black HolesBlack Holes If theories of their existence are true, black holes are the most powerful force in the known physical universe. Many people are familiar with the term black hole, but few people actually know anything about them. A black hole forms as a result of a massive star running out of fuel to burn (Chaisson, 193). Once the star is no longer exerting outward force by burning off gases, it begins to collapse under itís own intense, inward gravity (Chaisson, 193). It is like slowly letting the
The Death and Dying Beliefs of Australian AboriginThe Death and Dying Beliefs of Australian Aborigines Although the Aborigines are often classified as a primitive race whose religion is based upon animism and totemism like the American Indians, the Aboriginal funeral practices and beliefs about death have much in common with other cultures. This paper will discuss the death and dying beliefs of the Aborigines that share a common thread with many popular religions of today. Aboriginal beliefs in death and dying are original in that they combine
Deep Ecology And ReligionDeep Ecology And Religion Through this portion of class readings and discussions, we have sought deeper meaning and understanding of philosophies of individuals and organizations that revolve around the fundamental aspects and notions of deep ecology and eco-activism. These associations offer more views and attitudes on how an individual and society can create and maintain a kinship and positive influence with the natural environment. Like deep ecologistís view on the metaphysical relationship o
The History Of BuddhismThe History Of Buddhism Soon after Buddha\'s death or parinirvana, five hundred monks met at the first council at Rajagrha, under the leadership of Kashyapa. Upali recited the monastic code, Vinaya, as he remembered it. Ananda, Buddha\'s cousin, friend, and favorite disciple, and a man of prodigious memory, recited Buddha\'s lessons, the Sutras. The monks debated details and voted on final versions. These were then committed to memory by other monks, to be translated into the many languages of t
The Solar SystemThe Solar System Dealing with planets, galaxies, comets, meteors, and stars, astronomy is the science which studies the astral bodies. Astronomy also provides the basis for other physics-related sciences such as astrophysics and cosmology. The main staples of astronomy include: the solar system, nearby stars, asteroids, galaxies, and comets. The Solar System Newton\'s law of gravitation concluded that a force was present between the sun and each of the planets, which caused a strong attraction.
PhilosophyPhilosophy Philosophy originated from the Greek language. It is made up of two words: philein which means to love and sophia which means wisdom. There are three fundamental questions in the field of philosophy which are referred to as the Existential Concerns. What can I know?, What ought I to do?, What is the meaning of life and my place in the universe? These complex questions are discussed in the basic areas of philosophy. Epistemology is the theory of knowledge. The major question

VoodooVoodoo Voodoo, also called Vodoun and Hoodoo, is a culmination of the West African religions and Catholic beliefs brought to Haiti during the French settlement. Voodoo is a direct result of the slave trade. The whites forbade the slaves to practice their traditional rituals which involved the abuse of one\'s body. Because they disapproved of these practices, they imposed Catholicism by baptizing new members of society as Catholics. Voodoo rituals center around the belief in loa, which are the de
