Hi Richard Ruquist 

Is F = Ma one of the fundamental particles ? What's it look like ?

No Roger,


Take f=ma. M is a physical entity for sure. F is often taken to be physical as 
well,
Strings are both particles of force and mass.  QED>

Hi Richard Ruquist 
 
I think the problem is with the word "strings". It's confusing,
because it causes you to make a mental picture of strings
and so consider them as actual physical strings in space. 
 
But strings only exist on paper, not in the physical word.
They're just equations, descriptions of how particles move.

Baloney. Strings are extended in space. Where did you get that from?

Hi Stephen P. King 
Unlike everyday strings, the strings of string theory are not extended in space.
The particles they describe, however, are extended in space.

Hi guys,
Neither CYM's nor strings physically exist--?nstead, they represent things that 
exist.
Anything in equation form is itself nonphysical, although the equations
might describe something physical.


The equations of string theory describe strings. So how does it follow that 
strings aren't real. That's like saying a sentence that describes my house 
shows that my house isn't real.

I agree that string theory (or any other theory) is a model of reality and not 
reality itself. But, if it's correct, it refers to reality or at least some 
part of reality - like, "My house is green." refers to a part of reality, but 
"My house is blue." does not.

? When and if string theory makes a prediction that is then found to have a 
physical demonstration we might be more confident that it is useful as a 
physics theory and not just an exercise in beautiful advanced mathematics. The 
LHC is looking for such evidence...




For example, if I live at 23 Main street, 23 Main Street is not my house,
it is my address.
