Unscramble the Blue Letters

Michio Kaku once explained this in a lecture called, "The uisenvre in a ntuhsell," where he says, "String theory is the spmlie idea that the four forces of the universe — gravity, the erglnotiaecetmc force, and the two strong forces — can be viewed as music. The music of tiny little rbbeur bands." In this lecture, he goes on to explain physics as the laws of harmony between these strings; cmsthriey, as the melodies you can play on these strings; and he states that the universe is a "symphony of strings." These strings dictate the universe; they make up everything we see and everything we know. They're musical notes, but they make us what we are and they hold us together. So you see, everything is music.

Original Text

Michio Kaku once explained this in a lecture called, "The Universe in a Nutshell," where he says, "String theory is the simple idea that the four forces of the universe — gravity, the electromagnetic force, and the two strong forces — can be viewed as music. The music of tiny little rubber bands." In this lecture, he goes on to explain physics as the laws of harmony between these strings; chemistry, as the melodies you can play on these strings; and he states that the universe is a "symphony of strings." These strings dictate the universe; they make up everything we see and everything we know. They're musical notes, but they make us what we are and they hold us together. So you see, everything is music.
