Quantum Gravity and String Theory


A Physical Interpretation of String Theory?

Authors: Dirk J. Pons

This note identifies similarities between the cordus conjecture and string theory, and suggests opportunity for new research directions. To fully define a cordus particule requires 11 geometric independent-variables. This is the same number of dimensions predicted by some variants of string theory. There is also a similarity in the structural models, e.g. for the photon. The cordus model is physically descriptive and built with conceptual-design principles, whereas string theory provides a family of abstract mathematical models. Perhaps they are describing the same thing from different perspectives? Therefore we invite string theorists to consider whether the orthogonal spatial dimensions in their models could instead be interpreted as geometric independent-variables. Doing so would create new ways for interpreting string theories. Perhaps string theory might yet be a tool for the development of physically meaningful explanations for fundamental physics?
