For decades renowned scientist, and theoretical physicist Albert Einstein, proposed that an equation, perhaps one inch long, would bring the world of the heavens and the quantum realm into one unified theory.
Search For The Theory Of Everything
A Theory Of Everything (TOE) is a theoretical framework explaining all known physical entities in our universe, according to Space.com. Numerous researchers have been on the quest for the holy grail, discovering how to bring both the realm we know and the world of quantum phenomena together. Quantum mechanics, since its discovery, has had many scientists and researchers baffled like they were trying to complete a puzzle with a missing piece. Albert Einstein’s Theory Of Relativity in the early 20th century and his quantum theory have influenced science culture for decades on a mission to read the mind of God.
“I want to know how God created this world,” said Einstein to a young physics student named Esther Salaman in 1925. “I’m not interested in this or that phenomenon, in the spectrum of this or that element. I want to know His thoughts; the rest are just details.”
“Most of my intellectual offspring end up very young in the graveyard of disappointed hopes,” he wrote in a 1938 letter.
Einstein never gave up on this search to answer our questions about the cosmos. According to the American Physical Society (APS), Einstein, even on his deathbed, asked for his notes and papers on his Theory of Everything, still looking to finish his life work. Until Michio Kaku, theoretical physicist and pioneer of String Theory, came on the scene. String Theory explains higher dimensions, the mathematics of life before the Big Bang, and the phenomena of what happens in a black hole. The math is sound and explains the fundamental forces of our universe, the quantum realm, and other dimensions. Physicists and scientists might have possibly found the answer to Einstein’s unfinished question. That answer is String Theory and the God Equation. Michio Kaku plans on finishing the work of Albert Einstein where he left off, an equation he has been pondering since he was eight years old.
String Theory The Great Unifier of The Universe
When Michio Kaku was eight years of age, he heard that a great scientist had died from his teacher at school, that scientist being Albert Einstein, according to David Bodanis of the Financial Times. An image that forever changed Kaku’s life was a picture of Einstein’s desk. That desk had an open notebook with an unfinished equation. The young Michio Kaku was in awe of how Einstein, the world’s most brilliant scientist at the time, could not solve it, inspiring him to be the one that does.
“What could possibly be so hard that even the great Einstein could not solve it,” said a young Michio Kaku.
The young Kaku pursued a career as a physicist with the life mission of finishing the most world-changing math problem, the God Equation. According to space.com, the four fundamental forces of the universe are gravity, magnetism/electric, weak-nuclear force, and strong nuclear force. These forces are combined by Einstein’s Theory of Relativity equation, E=mc2 to explain how our universe functions. But this half-inch equation breaks down the second the quantum realm is concerned.
String theory in theoretical physics infers that our universe is brought into existence by infinite vibrating strings, smaller than atoms, electrons, or quarks. According to String Theory, as the strings vibrate, twist, and fold, they affect every aspect of our universe in numerous tiny dimensions, from human particle physics to large-scale phenomena like gravity.
Hunt For The Infamous God Particle
String Theory is the closest we have gotten to solving Einstein’s unfinished work, according to Michio Kaku’s book, The God Equation. This theory and its vibrating cosmic strings of subatomic particles have faced criticism as testing this theory is currently an uphill battle, and even though the math has checked out, we haven’t been able to test it until recently. The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) outside Geneva, Switzerland, is the biggest particle accelerator in the world, helping String Theory gain some evidence and ground on proving itself once and for all. Scientists and researchers at the LHC have been searching for the Higgs-Boson particle, The God Particle, which is the missing link for the standard model of subatomic particles.
The Theory Of Everything may be answered by String Theory. Although the math tells us this theory is correct, LHC and the hunt for the Higgs-Boson will be what determines String Theory and its future, giving humans the power of the Gods.
