Superstring theory gives us a framework of ideas that could lead to our understanding of how mass couples you to the Higgs field (which creates what we call gravity). Remove that coupling, remove the gravitational force. Its so cool. If you've seen the science shows on tv where they show the fabric of space and how gravity distorts it. They always make the mistake of looking at it in too few dimensions which makes it look like a cone. That is incorrect. It is not a cone. Its a shape which we don't have a name for yet. To try and visualize it: think of a hot pot belly stove in the middle of your summer camp bunkhouse. The closer you get, the hotter you get. The further away, the cooler you get. Replace temperature with the density of space (the Higgs field).

Close to a mass the Higgs field is dense. Far away and the density is lower. Your mass is nothing but the coupling of the strings in the sub-atomic particles of your body to the Higgs field. And this coupling is what distorts the fabric of space. The Higgs field itself may be made of strings which vibrate at certain frequencies. The strings in your body vibrate at a complementary frequency (actually its more than just frequency - phase shift, amplitude, dimension, all play into it).

When we learn how to manipulate the strings we can play any tune we want. For example, we can travel without using time. We can travel faster than light without violating relativity.

]]>I'm sure everyone knows that if you draw a circle whose diameter is 1, its circumference is PI. If we apply this to sub-atomic particles... Take the diameter all the way down to the Planck Length, the smallest distance in the universe (although some interpretations say 2 times Planck Length). Now you have a circle that is the smallest possible size. If you now apply that to a fundamental particle as defined by Superstring theory, you have a string that is rotating and is at absolute minimum energy. In rotation each point on the circle can only be reached once, since you cannot move a transcendental distance, nor can you move a whole multiple of a transcendental distance, which would also be transcendental. So how long before all the locations on the circle, which can be reached only once, are exhausted? And what happens next? Once all the locations have been exhausted it is physically impossible for the system to remain at the current energy level. And the circle cannot get any smaller. So the circle must get larger, but to do that it must GAIN energy. But where does the energy come from? Answer: It must borrow it from the universe. Therefore this is a poor man's proof for the concept of zero point energy. When you are at minimum energy you can only stay there so long and then you MUST gain energy, or cease to exist. Could this play into what happens at the center of a black hole?

Can we make use of this borrowing of energy from the universe? Or is this just a load of bunk?
