String Theory by Bridget Dixon

In the fall of 2017 I missed the opportunity to hear Dr. Michio Kaku explain the String Theory in person and no—
I’m not a physicist or even a science major which leads me knowing little to nothing about that matter in the universe or a lot about matter in general besides what matters to me
In a not so direct manner I rationalize to my friends how you and I were a component of the String Theory
The multiverses are the possible alternatives our relationship takes on existing in other dimensions
In a video I educate myself with he compares time traveling to Alice in Wonderland’s Through the Looking Glass, the glass being the wormhole, the known catalyst for time traveling
I want to time travel like Alice because she always orbits back
I tell them I will cheat time by plucking the clocks off the walls and move the hands backwards just to see you
Then I tell them I’d smash them all to bits so time would stop
The String Theory makes sense of you and I and time
Since I did not get to hear this explained in person, by default of my generation I become well acquainted with YouTube and Wikipedia
Wiki says, “String Theory is a set of attempts to model the four known fundamental interactions- gravitation, electromagnetism, strong nuclear force, and weak nuclear force, together.”
You and I gravitate towards another involuntarily, we charge up by pushing and pulling regularly
Do you feel it?
Wiki says, “The strong nuclear force holds the most ordinary matter together.”
But I don’t believe it, for we are not ordinary at all
Wiki says, “The weak force causes beta decay, a form of radioactivity.”
That’s more believable
The theory expresses an uncertainty of life or death after passing through a wormhole

How do we take the chance to be on the other side when our strings have been cut?
