lmao....GREAT joke--thanks for the laugh (both the string and NORTON)!!<quoted text>
I do not understand string theory. Nor do I understand why fractal geometry does. But there are lots of programs out there making some amazing graphics using fractal geometry.(I wouldn't keep my hopes too high for "Norton" to explain all this. Of course, he may be able to cite chapter and verse.)
So this string walks into a bar. Bartender says, "Sorry. We do not serve strings in here! You ARE a string, aren't you?" String replies, "No. I'm a frayed knot!)
I really have very little understanding of astrophysics myself-I just find it very intriguing. I do enjoy math and science. I've been fortunate enough to have some top notch professors and a pretty good career. Many moons ago I took physics taught by Harold Fuller...most people know his more famous brother, Buckminster Fuller.
As far as NORTON, if he could only survive a blast powerful enough to open his closed mind he might find that evolution is not blasphemy......
