In 1979 two scientists met at The Center for Nuclear Research (CERN).
Thesemen’s names are Michael Green and John Schwarz. John Schwarz had beenworking on the Theory of Superstrings/ Theory of Everything. Michael Greenthe younger of the two men was studying all research that he could get hishands on, and was fascinated by the Theory. John Schwarz who had been tiredof the Theory of Superstrings and the Theory of Everything in 1974 saw a newpassion and new data that would be the fuel for Michael and his ownresearch.
Very few other scientists wanted to become involved in theTheories and left the Theories to the two men. Green and Schwarz found thisperfectly acceptable, because they would now be receiving all credit fortheir work. The Old Paradigm is that the universe is made up of protons, neutrons, andelectrons. The New Paradigm states that the universe is not made up ofprotons, neutrons, and electrons but rather tiny Superstrings that vibrateat specific frequencies. ( Like a guitar string. )Using complicated formula’s such as E8 X E8 divides in two, in the Big Bangand creates two identical universes E8 and E8 shadow, this allows the theoryto 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 alsosuggests that our universe evolved out of a higher dimensional space duringthe first instances of the Big Bang. What this means is that during the BigBang there was an escape of particles and a whole lot of other stuff thatcreated our universe. This’Stuff’ that escaped from the ‘bag’ was only half of the equation. Thisacting like twins, or as called earlier a parallel universe that in theoryis the same as our own.
Evident resistance to the Superstring and Theory ofEverything is the fact that the money needed to build a machine(Relativistic Klystron Two Beam Accelerator) that will be able to produceenough energy as at the beginning of creation is near impossible. The comingof a machine as the RK/TBA may present the last thinkable experiment of thissort carried out by scientists. The faith that physicists have that the goalis within reach, is only based on the beauty of their Superstrings Theories. Should the building of the RK/TBA succeed in producing the energies thescientists are intending it to, then it will be decided whether thephysicists will find; everything or nothing.
The greatest impact that The Superstring Theories will have on society as awhole will be a number of things, such as; knowing that we are no longeralone in the universe and that there may be some other kind of intelligentlife that we may be able to interact with. Also, we may very well be able tocreate tiny universes of our own. How you ask, well if we can create orduplicate the amount of energy needed to create our universe than there maybe a way to create another universe using that technology. BibliographyPeat, David F.
