Seiberg-Witten M-theory As an Almost Successful Predictive Theory

Authors: David Brown

Seiberg, Witten, and many other string theorists have suggested that superstring theory might lead to spacetime as an emergent approximation. Seiberg-Witten M-theory predicts supersymmetry in the form of particles. If nature is finite and digital and the Rañada-Milgrom effect fully explains so-called dark matter, then supersymmetry might exist in the form of symmetry principles within Wolfram’s mobile automaton. This hypothetical automaton is qualitatively described in Wolfram’s “A New Kind of Science”, Chapter 9. M-theory with the infinite nature hypothesis suggests questions and hypotheses based upon a curling-up (or compactification) of the 11-dimensional fundamental domain. Modified M-theory with the finite nature hypothesis suggests questions and hypotheses based upon a building-up of an approximation to the 11-dimensional domain. This hypothetical approximation is the result of the Wolframian updating parameter gradually building up time, space, and energy from Fredkin-Wolfram information below the Planck scale. If Wolfram is correct, then the monster group and the 6 pariah groups are essential for understanding the foundations of physics. If nature is finite and digital then the precise values of the free parameters of the Standard Model should be completely predictable. Modified M-theory with Wolfram’s automaton might underlie quantum field theory.
