A Little Lunchtime Reading

This is from part of an article describing some current theories of sub-atomic structure. Specifically, string theory in this section this came from. For anyone not familiar, the quick and easy is that the pieces that make up atoms (electrons, etc.) are made up of strings vibrating at certain frequencies in some 11 dimentions (only 4 of which we can directly observe).
It is also interesting to note that physicists believe these strings of energy are either closed (forming a loop) or open (forming a line interval). I cannot help but think of the binary numeric system as used in electronic circuitry and computer programming. I can imagine a subatomic world in which various vibrating stings of electromagnetic energy, some circular like a “0,” some linear like a “1,” interlocked in various multidimensional mathematical computations to form complex structures in multidimensional binary code. - Allen, D.

As a programmer, I find this hilarious. In fact, I find the same visual coming to my mind as D. Allen describes. Then again, in my mental image, everything's green and trickling...wait, that was a movie. Maybe there's some truth to The Matrix trillogy after all? Things are not always what they seem. In fact, it doesn't seem that things are what they all.
