    I just watched something like this, but it was new and narrated by God. I mean, Morgan Freedman. Same difference.

    Theoretically speaking, wouldn`t the video have eventually gotten to a bunch a vibrating strings, had they kept zooming in?

    I`m just trying to improve my lack of understanding regarding string theory.

    @headiesrush
    if string theory is correct, or even as it is currently understood, i believe you would be correct, but don`t quote me on that as i am no quantum physicist

    No you would not see the strings because the thing that makes them "strings" cannot be properly displayed in two or three dimensions. "Strings" is just a metaphor for how information is transferred in 12-dimensional space.

    @HeadiesRusH

    The video ends with protons and neutrons. If it were to zoom in further, you`d see that they are each made up of 3 quarks. If it then zoomed in on a quark, you`d see that it has a string-like structure instead of being a point (according to string theory).

    @Volsunga

    The thing that makes them "strings" is that they are 1-dimensional objects. There`s no reason you can`t "properly display" these in 2 or 3 dimensional space.

    OMG I WAS A PART OF THIS PRODUCTION!!!!
    Well, just a little part. Back when I was in 5th grade, (I just graduated college), we were assembled in an auditorium and had to watch 2 versions of this. One version had more text on it showing the distance and the other one had less. I think this is the version with less text. Then, we all voted on which one we liked better.

    To Kill a Mockingbird
    The Great Escape
    The Magnificent Seven
    Trading Places and Ghostbusters to name a few.
    Also composed some of the music in MJ`s Thriller video

    Narrator: Philip Morrison. Nope, definitely not Winnie the Pooh.

    The closest voice I can think of is the Stork from Dumbo. I know what you mean by it sounds familiar, but can`t pinpoint it.
