Superstrings: From Music to Quantum Mecahnics

“Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.

Mahatma Gandhi


The frequency of vibration determines the mass of a particle.  The greater the vibration, the greater the mass.

Likewise, the electric charge and the weak and strong interactions of a particle are determined by the way the string vibrates.  The strings are basically the same, but they vibrate differently.

For example, the proton is nothing more than a trio of vibrating strings, each of which corresponds to a quark.

When we listen to Chopin or Beethoven, each piece of music is a shared vibration that carries us away.  Just as the three quark strings produce proton music.

When captured by measuring instruments, like particle accelerators, and bubble chambers, the proton music is translated into mass, positive electric charge, and spin.

The atom, which is a combination of protons, electrons, and neutrons, has many more instruments in its orchestra to create its music.
