Yes, I listened to the video on M Theory, how String Theory is associated with 10 dimensions while M has 11.
The whole membrane idea is really interesting. They were saying how particles may attach to the membrane while gravity penetrates them. It apparantly
explains why gravity is so weak.
It would be interesting if there were innumerable "bubbles" floating around in the universe.
The Professors were saying how the traditional physicists were making fun and poo-pooing quantum mechanics a couple of decades ago, but are no longer
laughing! They said that physic books of just a couple of decades ago now need to be thrown out, because they have learned so much since then. Like:
dark matter is NOT made up of atoms, most of the universe is not made up of atoms!
Also, Steven Hawking made the mistake of thinking that if the universe expands, and then contracts, then we could move in the reverse direction. But
mathematics would prove him wrong. So every time an egg drops and splatters, it is an indication of the universe itself and how it functions.
Which is interesting because there is nothing in physics that says we should not be able to move forwards or backwards. There is complete symmetry
both ways in physics. But time only moves in one direction and that is forward. Not all of us can be Benjamin Buttons!
