"String Theory Explained": animated short

Kurzgesagt presents “String Theory Explained: The Nature of Reality”.

In an animated video, the author explains why elementary particles are affected by being stared at (so are people).  Three of the forces have particles, but gravity is really a set of geometry rules for space-time. Then he explains why strings are useful in quantum theory, but it turns out we need six dimensions of them.  Will this lead to a “Theory of Everything”?

These two pictures provide an optical illusion of what is level (from my trainset), the second one especially.  Inside an O'Neill cylinder (as in my screenplay "Epiphany") this concept is very critical as to how artificial gravity really would work.
