hi, i'm new. name's danielle. i guess i joined because i'm fascinated, and also a little terrified, of the string theory. i've started to read The Elegant Universe by brian greene. i understand everything that i'm told, science is not my best subject, i hardly passed physical science and i've never taken physics. i find it a hard thing to waft through, because its so incredibly heavy. i never knew anything about quantum physics until i spent one night with a friend of mine on Ex and he showed me a few things on the internet.

anyway, i guess that's my short bio intro story. i'm interested in finding out more through other sources, i'm just a rookie and i don't know where i would love for the answers i'm looking for. so, i'm hoping this place can be useful.

Hey...I never took physics either. Never had the desire to, nor was I ever required. I'm the sort of person to fulfill college science requirements with archeology classes. I actually started out being really interested in particle physics a few years ago and from there, string theory. The Elegant Universe was the first (and so far, sadly, the only) book that I've read on the subject. I had to stop and restart it several times-partially due to losing it a few times- and because of that it took me about two years to read all the way though (and I'm a fast reader normally. The same length of book on a non-scientific subject, I could read and understand in a day or two.)

But it is worth it.

Hey! I'm new myself but ccan't be bothered to write an intro... haha. Anyway just wanted to say that Brian Greene is amazing and really you don't have to have much knowledge of physics to understand what he's talking about. You shoould definitely read The Fabric of the Cosmos aswell, a wonderful book!
