    Science has for a long time been trying to bring together the infinite world governed by general relativity where space and time become one, and the infinitesimal one where existances become possibilities and particles and waves change places in the least-est-est-est of measurable time



    you may say. . ."make use for what"
    sorry, I cant give more clues. .. read it once again. . .

    I think that's what they want to do with the snare-theory, where they use quantumdynamics to explain behaviour on the smallest of scales. (I'm probably talking bullshit :wink: I was at a lecture by 't Hooft, nobelprize winner doing research on snaretheory. But as a social scientist, I didn't have a clue what he was talking about :wink: )

    What's snare theory? Do you mean string theory, perchance?
    I want to auction off the Universe. Any bid?

    yeah...
    Science has been trying to find out how the theories of the very large mesh with the theories of the very small...
    ...so?

    Ever read "The Theory Of Everything"?


    "The fundamental particles of the universe that physicists have identified—electrons, neutrinos, quarks, and so on—are the "letters" of all matter. Just like their linguistic counterparts, they appear to have no further internal substructure. String theory proclaims otherwise. According to string theory, if we could examine these particles with even greater precision—a precision many orders of magnitude beyond our present technological capacity—we would find that each is not pointlike but instead consists of a tiny, one-dimensional loop. Like an infinitely thin rubber band, each particle contains a vibrating, oscillating, dancing filament that physicists have named a string."






    Here's a link to more about it:
