So could this in any way tie into/add to the string theory? The quantum aspect could apply, in perhaps both the micro and macro proportions? Are
these filaments part of that theory, or perhaps string theory is a part of the filament
thank you veryu much for the compliment
i have many a thread on the cosmos
here are a couple of my favourites
a universe full of lens shaped bubbles (ats)
Giant optical magnifying glasses in space found
string theory to me has been negated by the fact that it cannot "predict" anything and is mear mathmatical fiction,
it explains how everything works but so did platolomy and he was wrong,
i am a fan of mathmatical complexity,
but the theory is really only understandable to maths majors and does not "give" us the ability to "do " anything with it.
strings are a bridge like dark matter, we use them because of a lack of options,
not for their correctness.
for the universe to be understood correctly without fudge factors (dark stuff) a
new understanding of gravitational lensing must be accepted,
it can explain all the strangness we observe,
and it can predict what will be "seen"
only when we realize that everything we see is beacause of light,
and light can be lensed,m
to increase size perspective,
to increase brightness
to give "apperent" motion
to reflect images
and we use light to measure distence in the cosmos,
you start to realise almost anything can explained by optical physics (imho)
hope my ideas are not to far out for you
