1+2+3+… = -1/12 is an equation of string theory. Make of that what you will.

Just like string theory has no physical principles, postulates, predictions, nor equations, the black holes they observe have no names.

Yes please share the names of some of the observed black holes. Which is the biggest? Which was first?

String Theory is one giant black hole which has sucked in billions in funding and thousands of positions in physics departments.

String theory is a marketing strategy that mathematicians have been cautioning physicists against since the 80s.

No joke: Eric Weinstein alludes to Ed Witten being some sort of (non-goverment) psyop to derail/stall physics from making real progress, he was given inside knowledge of physics no one else knows from his father Louise Witten that came from anti-gravity research in mid-midlate 20th century, Jim Simons may alsp have access to such reseaerch/technology

(this is all in his recent Joe Rogan podcast)

Well one must admit that this Theory makes as much sense as Twistor Unification. Also, I get most all of my physics from Joe Rogam and the rest from gossip blogs.

Does everyone agree Sagittarius A* is a black hole?

So, the OP, whoever he is, openly admits that he has no involvment in any area of math and no knowledge of physics.

It's Alexander Unzicker, a well-known crank.

It was a bit of a heist, no? A bunch of cranks needed tenure, titles, and tv shows and so they agreed to do science sans any physical principles, postulates, predictions, or equations. It really was a sociological construct and they were so well-funded they could basically hire reference frame bloggers to call critics cranks until the blog disappeared for some mysterious reason.

Stting theory is a bit older than blogs, or internet. And some of researchers there love in cointries where doing research in whatsoever area is not bringing you money.

Saw this and he mentioned something about how string theorists were told to call critics crackpots lol so that Brian Greene would triumph lol

Yes why did that blog disappear?

Cautioning? It seems that string theory will survive as little math tibits (mirror sym, super manifolds, etc).

Hello Ed Witten! While we have you here, what are string theory's physical principles, postulates, predictions, and equations?

If it doesn't have any, that is OK. We still like Michio Kaku and Brian Greene for hyping an empty, bankrupt theory/hoax lol.

I don’t think Loop Quantum Gravity or Twistors have any physical principles, postulates, predictions, or equations either.

It’s kindof a boomer thing.
