In last night’s CSI episode entitled The Theory of Everything, the CSI cast explored the wonderful world of Quantum Physics to help explain how each of their bizarre cases was inadvertently connected.
Grissom: “String Theory is the theory of everything. Quantum Mechanics tells us about the very small. The Theory of Relativity explains the immense. String Theory ties it all together. It proposes that atomic particles are made up of infinitesimal vibrating loops of energy, or “strings”. Each string vibrates at its own frequency, like on a violin, producing notes. And these notes make up everything in the universe.”
Catherine: “Cosmic symphony.”
Grissom: “These strings have been combining and recombining ever since the Big Bang, so the connections between our victims or any of us are not that extraordinary.”
Sound familiar?This String Theory is a developing mathematical approach to explain physics and links together all physical phenomena, including the Four Fundamental Forces of the universe: gravity, electromagnetism, and the weak and strong nuclear forces. It attempts to provide a complete, unified, and consistent description of the fundamental structure of our universe, which is why it has been dubbed the “Theory of Everything”.
According to this theory, these strings make up the particles that make up the atoms that make up every one of us, and they vibrate at their own unique frequencies, just like the strings on a guitar when plucked produce unique notes.
We are all connected to everyone and everything else, and we really do have a song. Maybe the Hymn of One was right!
As Carl said at the Hymn of One seminar, “I had this incredible moment of clarity. I just felt like everything around me, like the people, the cars, almost like the whole universe was calling out to me, and just telling me that this was my Eternal Song. And at that moment I felt at peace. I felt like everything was gonna be okay. So, guys, I found my Eternal Song, and I really, really hope that you guys will find it, too.”
“Every time I sing my eternal song with the Hymn of One, I feel that joy and happiness. You can feel it too. You can find your song today. The Hymn of One sings to you. Can you hear it?”- Bree, in Look Back
