What every layperson should know about string theory
Ethan Siegel

Since there’s no such thing as a one dimensional anything, no points that sum into a line, no strings that sum into a universe, what we have here is an imaginative and yet somehow compelling math narrativity field of possible road maps to nowhere, which just might be the most complete theoretical physics work to date, remembering that dates are even an imposed description of something that seems to be occurring, but ultimately unprovable, linear time.

So it’s a fair question, what am I saying? And does it make sense? Well, why should that standard apply to me but not university trained theoretical physicists?
