String theory and Universal Theories

If we can take a looks garment from a sweater, and pull one string such as in a cartoon, the sweater will untangle leaving a pile of string on the floor. Basically what this implies is we break down something in its simplest form, and all we have left are tiny bits of string, which is basically similar to “String Theory”.

string theory uses a model of one-dimensional strings in place of the particles of quantum physics. These strings, the size of the Planck length vibrate at specific resonant frequencies. The formulas that result from string theory predict more than four dimensions but the extra dimensions are "curled up" within the Planck length.
In addition to the strings, string theory contains another type of fundamental object called a brane, which can have many more dimensions. In some "braneworld scenarios," our universe is actually "stuck" inside of a 3-dimensional brane, called a 3-brane.
Common Sense tells us we live in a world defined by three spatial dimensions and one dimension of time. Mainly, it only takes three numbers to pinpoint your physical location at any given moment. On Earth, these coordinates break down to longitude, latitude and altitude representing the dimensions of length, width and height (or depth). If we put a time stamp on those coordinates, we are pinpointed in time as well.
To strip that down even more, a one-dimensional world would be like a single bead on a measured thread. You can slide the bead forward and you can slide the bead backward, but you only need one number to figure out its exact location on the string: length. Where's the bead? It's at the 6-inch mark, a world that a philosopher would not be able to survive in, due to it being only one way to figure something out.
In a two-dimensional world, it is essentially a…...

A Piece of String

...LaTasha Smith 16 August 2012 A Piece of String The short story of A Piece of String was written by Guy de Maupassant in 1883. It is a short story based on in my opinion the theory of “guilty until proven innocent”. The moral of the story is that you must tell the truth to maintain a reputation of honesty and gain trust from others, because a reputation of deceit and dishonesty will make people believe you are not trustworthy, so even when you're telling the truth, it is hard for others to believe. The main characters in The Piece of Strings are Maître Hauchecorne, M. Malandain and The Mayor of Goderville. Maître is a peasant, who picks up anything he sees as useful off the ground. The story begins where he is walking through the market and comes across a piece of string. He picks the string up and keeps it for himself. Later, in the Market, Maître Hanchecornes enemy accuses him of stealing someone else's pocketbook. This soon gets around Goderville, and people begin to distrust and dislike Maître Hauchecorne, despite his claim of innocence. Maître Hauchecorne already had a bad reputation with the citizens of Goderville due to his previous lying and over exaggerations and telling unbelievable stories. This is the main reason for the people's reluctance to believe Maître Hauchecorne, although he is telling the truth. The pocketbook is eventually returned, however the town still doesn’t believe his innocence. The pain and heartache that Maitre Hauchecorne suffered......

To String a Guitar

...To String A Guitar   To String A Guitar The method of putting a new string on a guitar may seem like an easy process, and in fact, it is. Before I begin to enlighten you on the art of strapping on a new string, there are some things you should know about your guitar. I have provided a map of the anatomy of an acoustic guitar with the appropriate terminology. Any time that I use a term associated with the diagram, I will italicize it. Example: The nut of the guitar. There are six strings on this guitar and I will walk you through the installation of the low E string which, in the above diagram, is the furthest to the left. The only items that you will need are a wire cutter, a guitar tuner, and of course, the low E string. This example will also assume that there is not currently a low E string on your guitar. To begin, you want to make sure that you have a good grasp on your guitar so that it remains stable and motion free while at the same time allowing the use of both of your hands. When you are ready, you can direct your attention to the bridge of the guitar where you will find the bridge pins. At this point, remove the bridge pin that is associated with the low E string. (The one furthest to the left on the diagram) Now focus your attention to the low E string that you have and if it is still coiled, you may uncoil it. At one of the ends of the string you shall see a little hollow ball. Take this ball and put it through the bridge of the guitar where you...

Piece of String

...When you read a story, you must realize that the point of view that the story is written in can help you learn more about the story. It can also create more excitement, and create more mystery while you read. Both “The Necklace”, and “The Piece of String” stories, are written in a Third Person Limited perspective. This means that the narrator is an outsider who sees into the mind of one of the characters. This is a major factor in determining how the stories make you feel about themselves, and how interesting the stories are. In a third-person view story, the reader can see the story itself from different points of view, and not just one. He or she can learn more, and know more than the individual characters themselves. In a first-person view story, the reader sees from the point of view of the narrator, so he/she may see more dialog including feels, thoughts, and ideas. In a third-person view, the reader will see more facts, such as what all of the other characters do. However, they will not see as many of the inner-feelings or thoughts of the characters, unless it is third-person omniscient. In addition, a third-person view is often more easy to figure out if it is a mystery, or similar plot structure, because the reader learns more facts from concrete reading, then having to think about whats going on in a story. In a first-person view, it is harder to figure out, generally, the plot details and story, because the reader only gains the facts of what the......

...I. What is a concept? a. A building block of a theory, can be a few of them, b. abstract ideas that cannot be visualized. Such as pain or coping or social support. You can have an idea in your mind of what these are but you cant actually touch any of these. Can you touch social support? You can probably touch a part of your body that may feel some sense of pain but the actual concept itself cannot be touched. c. Tend to be universal which means they apply equally to everything related. d. Concepts tend to be the basic elements of propositions (or statements that result from reason). If you remember geometry they had the proposition they had the “if A equaled B and B equaled C.Does A equal C.” That is the idea of what propositions are and they take concepts and build on them to create these statements to help define whatever we are discussing such as theory, research study. e. Help to integrate unrelated phenomena into a hypothesis which creates research. Critical to have very defined concepts and the concepts needed to be created into hypothesis so that you had something to study. That is critical when we discuss concepts and research i.

...THEORY Integration, values and mental health Integration is commonly considered to be essential to the healthy personality. It has been found in the definition of many personality psychologists and plays a central role in health. Over a long period of time integration has been identified as having the following characteristics: (a) The presence of a unifying life theme, (b) an overriding goal, giving meaning to all of life, and (c) values that give direction to a goal (Csikszentmihalyi, 2009, Levy, 1990, Lecky, 2010). Allport (1968) is far and away the expert in the field of meaning and values in psychology. He identifies different life themes that can give meaning to life. The healthy person, according to Allport, is the one who can give meaning to his life through choosing one of these life themes. Everyone eventually chooses a life theme that is meaningful to them. R. May (personal communication, August 30, 1983) said that the struggle between meaningfulness and a lack of meaning represented the human being's single most difficult challenge. METHODOLOGY The therapeutic team A therapeutic team was employed at each clinical site that had a psychologist, social worker, and medical specialist. The site was contacted to obtain permission to carry out the research. There were two treatment groups, criminals and non-criminals. All participants have an intake interview and then are placed in their therapy groups. The results of a demographic......

...The influence of consequential ethics as an ethical framework (the greatest good for the greatest number) opposes the ethical principle of deontology (i.e., the rightness of an act itself determines what is right). Both of these impact the nursing profession. Modern social exchange theories are based on the principle of utility. Read the assumptions of social exchange theory and consider how these would affect the nurse-patient relationship, compared to how these impact the nurse within the health care environment. To what extent are all theories ethical? Is social exchange theory compatible with the values of the nursing profession? Theories from the sociologic sciences are integral to the discipline of nursing (McEwen &Wills, 2014). Social exchange theory deals with the many different types of interactions among patients and their nurses. The social exchange theory is defined as “a flow of emotional concern, instrumental aid, information, and or appraisal (information relevant to self-evaluation) between people” (Leahy-Warren, 2007, p. 370). The implication for using non-nursing theories to develop nursing knowledge is that borrowed theories are potentially useful for understanding the patient nurse interaction. The two categories of social exchange theories are individualistic and collectivist. In individualistic frame work “human beings are motivated by self-interest to act” (McEwen &Wills, 2014). In individulistic method the nurse will provide comprehensive...

Please Pull String for Line

...Daniella Rodriguez Film 1 Casablanca Prompt 3 9 March 2015 Please Pull String for Line As I left the room after class on Monday night, one of the girls behind me said to her friends how she though Casablanca was one of the most romantic movies she’s ever seen. I have to humbly disagree with her. Yes, it is touching how Rick puts aside his relationship with Ilsa in order to help the world, because he knows his problems are miniscule to the world. The part was great. But how can a movie that portrays women in such a bad and ridiculous light be considered romantic? All three women we actually see are nothing more than pawns in the game the men play, props to elevate the glory of the main hero and stepping stones to achieve his full mission. The first woman we meet is Yvonne. She’s obviously gorgeous, and somehow that’s all we know. Through the narrative we learn nothing more than the fact that she sleeps around, and is somehow annoying for wanting more than just sex. Because wanting something more than sex is somehow too much to handle for our lead. She is literally being passed around from man to man, who take her home for sex and then treat her like garbage the next day. There is no difference between her and a high class prostitute. Not only is she an annoying walking sex toy, she also happens to be an alcoholic. During a scene the audience sees Yvonne drinking more than she should, and who comes to the rescue Rick. After she tells him that she doesn’t want to go...

...Orem’s Theory and Leadership Gretchen M. Ngaruiya Chamberlain College of Nursing NR501: Theoretical Basis in Advanced Nursing September 2015 Orem’s Theory and Leadership Nursing theory can be used to help solve problems in any aspect of nursing. It can solve problems in general nursing as well as leadership and management issues. The topic or specialty is not necessarily the basis on which nursing theory should be used to solve the problem because many different theories double to cover multiple disciplines. In this paper we are going to discuss Orem’s theory. Orem’s general nursing theory encompasses the ideas that self-care is necessary for the benefit of health and that as nurses we are designated to assess and find the self-care deficits and recognize who is needed to be able to perform the action (nursing) for the individual, and this relates to many nursing issues because it basically defines the role of the nurse to the patient in recognition to total care of the patient. And no matter what specialty you are in the main goal is adequate patient care. This paper will discuss a problem that happens far too often in home health. Patients are turned away daily because of assessment. Nurses in leadership positions such as administrators, directors, and admissions nurses are turning away patients because their needs are not expressed well in referrals and discharge / admission assessments. Also, discussed, will be the strategy to fix this problem by using...

...PSYC 210 Discussion Board 1 Humanism was the most beneficial theory to me at this point in my life, as this is an area that I have been working on in myself. I don’t mean to dismiss other theories, but we glean that which is useful at the time. I can see areas such as being too critical of others and their beliefs or lifestyle, when I don’t know what has gone on in their lives to bring them to the point they are in. We are all still human and that will remain. As I seek acceptance from others, I must learn to give it as well. Grace bestows grace. Or in the words of our Lord, “Love thy neighbor as thy self” (Matthew 22:39 ESV) I am starting to understand that we are all individuals with different perspectives and priorities, but at our very core we are all created in His image. That is the part we must strive to see in others. Letting the shell of this world fade from our view, and focus on God in man. “He must increase, but I must decrease” (John 3:30 ESV) In the textbook, when speaking of Carl Rogers it said “He did not think that everything people do is good but, he believed that people themselves are good, as in “Hate the sin but love the sinner” I think we should apply that to our Christian outlook more often. The other theory that I enjoyed was the cognitive theory. I think this theory applies to my Christian worldview because our world is changing and we have to keep changing as well. I think this theory would help us teach children about being christians as......
