bigthink:  diy physics…

pzykr:
cacaophony; where’s the harmony in today’s physics? more like kakaphony!
in the sixth grade (a looong time ago) i read and understood einstein’s relativity results–the equations– and read all i could find on riemann in a small south georgia town… i understood his concept and at least some of the math of curved space-time. today… quantum theory…ok, i follow that: der herrgott DOES wuerffel (throw dice) and all we can know are probabilities… and i even catch goedel with his there are true things which cannot be proven… but string theory? i’ve been lost from the beginning, and i haven’t found a single book that made me “get” it… maybe it really is mental mathturbation for the very elite geek…
