Skeptical mathematician Peter Woit warns us, in jest, that 11/11/11, some date coming up on which you probably have some real-world crap due, could be a “Portal to Another Universe?”:
I find this to be interesting since this theory is supposed to explain the universe! The first eleven that was noticed is that string theory has to have 11 parallel universes (discussed in the beginning of the “11.11″ article) and without including these universes, the theory does not work.
The second is that Brian Greene has 11 letters in his name.
Well, it is hard to imagine anything more convincing. And what does that say about string theory in general now that nobody found the Higgs boson?
