Here’s the thing about string
In the theory of string
You ought not push
Less knot you furnish
Here’s the thing
If you push on a string
Appear a gluttony lush
With the knot (not) you furnish

ABOUT THE SONG
Am (less C / add D / add G)
Em (add D / add G)
The meaning of the song has to do with the Complete Theory of the Universe. Some consider String Theory to be the complete theory of the universe. A simplistic view would be to imagine everything as a string. What happens when you try to push a string? A more complex way to look at is through a vibration. Can you imagine everything as a vibration? What kind of vibration will you be?
String Theory states that strings propagate through space and time.
“These oscillations exist in discrete vibrational modes, the spectrum of the theory.”
“An analogy for strings’ modes of vibration is a guitar string’s production of multiple but distinct musical notes. In the analogy, different notes correspond to different particles. One difference is the guitar string exists in 3 dimensions, so that there are only two dimensions transverse to the string. Fundamental strings exist in 9 dimensions and the strings can vibrate in any direction, meaning that the spectrum of vibrational modes is much richer.”
