Hi Richard,

This description assumes an embedding space-time that is separable from the monads "in" it. One alternative is to work with an abstract model of (closed under mutual inclusion) totally disconnected compact spaces where the individual components of the space are the images that a set of "mutually reflecting" monads have. This allows us to use Greene's r -> 1/r duality and the Stone duality as well. ;-)

Yes Stephan,
The 10^500 possible windings of flux constraining the compactified dimensions are sufficient to populate some 10^120 universes with every monad unique or distinct.

The CYMs are known to be discrete
and since the hyperfine constant varies across the universe
it is likely that the monads are distinct.

That this all comes from a subspace of ennumerable particles
to my mind satisfies Occum's Razor.

    Hi Jason,

        Nothing "in the theory" suggests that landscapes are a
    problem! But that is kinda my point, we have to use meta-theories
    of one sort or another to evaluate theories. Occam's Razor is a
    nice example... My point is that explanations should be hard to
    vary and get the result that one needs to "match the data" or else
    it is not an explanation at all. One can get anything they want
    with a theory that has landscapes. Look!

    "The string theory landscape or anthropic landscape refers to the
    large number of possible false vacua in string theory. The
    "landscape" includes so many possible configurations that some
    physicists think that the known laws of physics, the standard
    model and general relativity with a positive cosmological
    constant, occur in at least one of them. The anthropic landscape
    refers to the collection of those portions of the landscape that
    are suitable for supporting human life, an application of the
    anthropic principle that selects a subset of the theoretically
    possible configurations.
    In string theory the number of false vacua is commonly quoted as
    10500. The large number of possibilities arises from different
    choices of Calabi-Yau manifolds and different values of
    generalized magnetic fluxes over different homology cycles. If one
    assumes that there is no structure in the space of vacua, the
    problem of finding one with a sufficiently small cosmological
    constant is NP complete, being a version of the subset sum problem."

        Boom, there it is! The computation problem!

    What in the theory suggests that landscapes are a problem?  Is
    there any evidence in any theory that only one possible set of
    physical laws has to pervade all of existence, or is this just an
    unsupported preconception/hope of physicists who've spent a big
    chunk of their lives looking for a unique theory?

    To me, the effort of finding some mathematical explanation for
    why only one set of physical law can be is a lot like the
    Copenhagen theory's attempt to rescue a single history, despite
    that nothing in the theory or the math would suggest as much.

        I solved the landscape problem by assuming that each monad
        was distinct
        consistent with the astronomical observations that the
        hyperfine constant
        varied monotonically across the universe.

                Good! Now to see if there any any other possible

                    Could you link some sources on this?

                    Hi guys,
                    Neither CYM's nor strings physically
                    exist-- instead, they represent things that
                    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

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