I am not a physicist, theoretical or otherwise.  I have a hard time understanding Einstein’s Theory of Relativity, and Quantum physics tends to put me in an absolute funk.  But even the greatest minds are incapable of putting it all together in a comprehensible whole.  They have been unable to come up with a theory that explains everything.

String theory is just one such attempt at an explanation.  According to this theory, the particles that propagate space and make up our physical universe are made up of infinitesimally small one-dimensional strings that can vibrate in different ways, and the mass, charge, and other properties of a particle are determined by the vibrational state of the strings.

On a macro scale. A vibrating string produces a sound with a constant frequency, and if the length or tension of the string is correctly adjusted the sound produced is a musical note.

One scientist described it this way.  Don Lincoln, senior experimental particle physicist at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory and an adjunct professor at the University of Notre Dame, wrote the following:  

“Everything—and I mean everything—is just a consequence of many infinitely-large fields vibrating. The entire universe is made of fields playing a vast, subatomic symphony. Physicists are trying to understand the melody.”

The Apostle John wrote.  “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.”

I picture this Word as the voice of God being sung as a beautiful celestial melody and propagated through time and space to create the world we know.
