M-theory — Physicist Louis Del Monte discusses the discoveries leading to M-theory. Del Monte explains M-theory’s “membrane universes” (i.e. branes) and the 11-dimensions predicted by the theory. According to M-theory, a collision between branes gives birth to a new universe. In this context, according to M-theory, the Big Bang would be a result of a collision between branes.

Del Monte explains the two major criticisms M-theory’s opponents assert:

1. M-theory is not provable. Therefore, many in the scientific community do not consider it a valid theory of science.

2. M-theory does not explain the origin of the energy to create membrane universes, or to spawn new universes when branes collide.

In summary, opponents assert we are trying to explain a universe we can experience and measure with an M-theory universe that we cannot experience and measure.

Del Monte’s position: As a theory of the universe, especially in creating universes, M-theory is not provable with today’s technology. Until it is provable, we should view it as mathematical construct. It does not address the fundamental question: where did the energy originate to create the membranes? However, M-theory does offer some useful tools, via its prediction of an 11-dimension universe. This may provide clues in understanding other physical phenomena, such as virtual particles.

This subject is also fully discussed in Louis Del Monte’s new book, Unraveling the Universe’s Mysteries (available in paper back or as an eBook on Amazon http://amzn.to/Zo1TGn and Barnes & Noble http://bit.ly/RAv4FL).
