M Theory for Dummies
2 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw 'Parallel Universes' some time ago and was absolutely fascinated with how the origin of our universe was explained. It was like a light bulb going on in my head. The big bang now made sense to me. At the time I didn't pay attention to the title and was unable to locate the film again. Recently the Discovery Science Channel aired this film in a block of features about the latest discoveries in cosmology.

The film deals with the development of string theories v. the theory of super gravity. The five various string theories postulated ten dimensions while the super gravity theory postulated eleven dimensions. It was discovered that if there are eleven dimensions (ten plus time as a dimension), all these theories merge into one theory that makes sense and where everything works. It is called M theory or Membrane theory. I won't go into the details here. Suffice it to say, the physics of cosmology became much more accessible to me as I watched this film and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in the mechanics of the creation of our universe.
