# The String TheoryMike Schuricht Steven Wong

The entire purpose of the string theory is to plug holes left by previous theories.  It is based on the fact that everything is made of atoms, and all atoms are made of sub-atomic particles.  Those sub-atomic particles are made of quarks.  So, what makes up quarks?  Sub-quarks?  In a sense, yes.  They use vibrating particles to represent the quarks.  Basically, all sub-atomic particles are the same thing.  A string vibrating at different frequencies.  It has a total of 10 dimensions.  The first three are the standard (X, Y, Z) coordinates, and the other six are wrapped in to the string.

The six that we do not fully understand are wrapped in a "loop" that is so small that we can not yet distinguish it from a string, or a 1 dimensional object in space.  The tenth dimension is time.  Everything travels along that dimension.  According to the theory, every string is the same as the last, but each one differs in on thing.  The frequency that it vibrates at.  Frequency,  and frequency alone determine the difference between an electron and a positron.  Frequency alone determines the difference between matter and the highly unstable anti-matter.
