"From the Ted Talk by Brian Greene: Making sense of string theory"

#### Unscramble the Blue Letters

But this illustrates the fact that deionmisns can be of two sorts: big and small. And the idea that maybe the big dimensions around us are the ones that we can esialy see, but there might be additional dimensions curled up, sort of like the cuilcarr part of that cable, so slaml that they have so far remained invisible. Let me show you what that would look like. So, if we take a look, say, at space itself â I can only show, of course, two dimensions on a screen. Some of you guys will fix that one day, but anything that's not flat on a screen is a new dimension, goes smaller, smaller, smllear, and way down in the microscopic depths of space itself, this is the idea, you could have additional curled up dimensions â

And the idea that maybe the big dimensions around us are the ones that we can easily see, but there might be additional dimensions curled up, sort of like the circular part of that cable, so small that they have so far remained invisible.
