StringsJuly 29, 2014
The smallest elements are described as strings as apposed to points. This makes sense because the best you could do with points is pile them up, with more at the bottom (centre), gathered together by gravitational attraction. I imagine strings to be like tiny garden hoses or electrical cords, easy to tangle up. Things that are tangled can produce complex clumps that are hard to flatten out or re-organize. This suggests that strings are like life, and it is why everything is always becoming more complicated.
