Strings May Be 11-Bit Digital Data Registers
* According to M-/String-Theory, Strings are the smallest structures that exist, even smaller than electrons or quarks.
* The have 11 dimensions.
* 4 of them are true space dimensions, the others are “turned” around themselves and therefore seem to exist only at sub-atomic level. In mathematic speaking dimensions always are orthogonal. In a true Euclidian space this means that they are separated from each others by true right (90°) angles. In a curved/bent space this is different. Here orthogonal only means only that they are completely independent.
* Strings vibrate. There vibration patterns have therefore 11 independent components, according to the11 dimensions of a String.
* Their vibration spectra are continuous or are they discrete, like in Quantum Mechanics? Strings have their name, because they behave like any guitar string. Vibrations of a guitar string is a static wave with the and a frequency ۷ wave length λ. If we call string length x, then the to the lowest possible frequency ۷ (1) corresponds a longest possible wave length
λ(1) = 2* x or λ(1)/2 = x.
Other possible frequencies have to be products of the multiplication of ۷ (1) with an Entire Number (n = 1,2,3,4, etc. …).
So the concept of string implicates that their frequency spectra are all discrete, being
۷ (n) =۷ (1) * n
* How many frequencies there may exist? An infinite number?
Infinity of frequencies would mean that the highest one would be infinite, too. Therefore its wavelength would be infinitely small. It should make some sense to suppose that the dogma of Quantum Mechanics that nothing can be infinitely small is valid in M-/String Theory, too. So there cannot be an infinity of frequencies possible, but only a restricted number of them, due to a smallest possible wave length.
* Which would be the smallest wave length? As until today it was impossible to put Strings as target into a particle accelerator and to measure smallest possible lenght, smashing and fragmenting them, we have to create a supposition about it that makes sense.
I suppose the smallest length possible is that of String itself. Then the smallest wave length possible would be
x = λ(2) = λ(min.)
being ۷ (n) ≡1/ λ(n) and۷ (n) =۷ (1) * n therefore x = λ(1)/2 = 2*x/2
In each of 11 dimensions then there should be only possible 2 frequencies/ wave lengths: ۷ (1) with λ(1) = 2* x
and ۷ (2) with λ(2) = x
* If it were truth that Strings may only vibrate in 2 frequencies in each of its dimension, them we may substitute them by binary numbers: ۷ (1) = “0” and ۷ (2) = “1”
and Strings would become 11 bit digital data registers.
* Somebody may ask: “and what about frequency 0 = no vibration at all?” If a String would be able to rest completely in any of its dimensions, there should be possible a String that does not vibrate at all in every of its 11 dimensions. As vibration means energy and Strings are made of energy, such a string would not have energy at all and therefore be reduced to “nothing”.
There should not be possible a state of complete absence of vibration in any dimension.
* According to the ideas, demonstrated above, Strings, with their vibration pattern do not form a “cosmic symphony” but an intelligent structure like a computing program, capable to process information.
We all live within a virtual reality called ”Universe”.
I am a Ph.D. of Chemistry, not of Theoretical Physics. Therefore I beg your pardon, if anything in my text would not be so perfect and professional, you might expect. Nevertheless I think it’s all quite logical.
