    Default Music and String Theory

    Went to a very interesting lecture by Dr Mark Lewney on guitar and string theory. Catch it if you can.

    ...Dr Lewney will then show how the vibrations of guitar strings might be applied to the particles we're all made of, but with a twist: the strings vibrate in extra dimensions. Charming stories and mind-bending animations are used to try to get the audience to think in 4, 5 or even 11D. This introduction to Superstring Theory shares the wonder and excitement of such grand scale, cutting edge physics.

    Wyrd is a concept in Anglo-Saxon and Nordic culture roughly corresponding to fate. It is ancestral to Modern English weird, which has acquired a very different meaning.

    Is this like; A guitar string, pluck it and it makes a sound, fret it and it makes a higher sound, is this thread like that?

    Like time is all relative and stuff and; how a clock at the very top of a very tall building will experience a different speed of time than a clock placed in the basement of that very tall building, ?

    Every player in the game of existence contributes to the harmony of the music of life, if you look at String Theory or M Theory philosophically.
