Understanding String Theory


I was watching a sci-fi show and they were talking about subatomic particles. I started to look up all this stuff and then got side tracked into string theory and then the explanation for it. There are many string theories and they all are dependent on ten dimensions. I was trying to visualize it for myself and I made the drawing to help me wrap my head around the multiple dimensions. I thought some people might enjoy this. There also is an overarching theory called M-Theory which combines all the smaller string theories into one and adds one more dimension “the 11th dimension” to justify the M-theory but I couldn’t get my head around that one. Or even justify why it needed to exist. I’m totally fascinated by string theory.
