Super String Theory: As Applied to Biological Life

An Introduction to Super String (Super Symmetric String) Theory:

According to Super String Theory, the basic objects are one-dimensional objects known as ‘super strings’. Super strings are thought to have a length scale of 10 power -35 m and since very high energies are associated with very short distances, they should have energy scale of 10 power +19 GeV which is far from any energy scale of any accelerator that can be envisaged. In fact, several dimensions are curved into one dimension making the existence of Super strings possible. Theory of Super strings also leads to the spin 2 particles known as GRAVITONS. A graviton is a hypothetical particle or quantum of energy (resembling E=hn) exchanged in a gravitational interaction. It is expected to travel at the speed of light(C) and to have no mass, no charge and have a spin 2.

The essential aspect of Super String Theory is that, this theory is an attempt to explain all the particles and fundamental forces of nature in one theory by modeling them as vibrations of tiny super symmetric strings.

In fact, it is a correlation between General Theory of relativity in which Gravitational forces and Graviton play vital role, and Quantum mechanics where Planck’s law play the vital role.

To cite an example, if the entire stretch of Niagara is the gravitational force,a tablespoonful of its water may be compared to a quantum of energy (photon). The flow always continues in quanta of energy and connected by super symmetric strings.

This is a brief description of Superstring theory.

What is Life?

1. Various genetic codes are inscribed in the minutest form on the basis of an INTELLIGENT PLAN which is to be decoded.

2. They are transferred to intelligent life through aperiodic crystals (as propounded by E.Schrodinger) which were known later as DNA and RNA molecules.

3. Living beings improve upon the organism by gaining more and more intelligence and drawing order from environment known as Negative Entropy. (E.Schrodinger). for this examples may be derived from medicines, co-meditation which give Anentropy (A new term introduced by Holistic Philosophy for Negative Entropy, anti-entropy=anentropy, the supplier of ORDER)

4. The genetic codes never die and they are carried over to future generations and the process continues for ever.

Conclusion number 4 is very important and is of direct relevance to this article.

How Does Super String Theory Apply to ‘Life’?

On deeply contemplating over Super String Theory, it appeared to me that Life has a continuity through the Genes which are carried over generation after generation.

Photons are for electro magnetic energy, gravitons for gravitational force, magnetons for atomic dipoles and likewise, genes are for the life force.

All the rules applied for super string theory applies to genes, in physical dimensions as follows:

I. Genes are minute in size.

ii. They are highly energetic in Nature.

iii. They carry the life force (like photons carry the Electro- magnetic force and gravitons carry the gravitational force)

iv. Several dimensions are curved into one making the transit generations to generations possible.

Hence, physical aspects of Genes theory perfectly suit the Super String theory.

The major difference is the content of Intelligence which is coded into the genes which are decoded in course of time which makes Life force different from other physical reference of readers:

The Meaning of LIFELINE:

One important aspect of this derivation is that Life can travel only through one line which is known as ‘the lifeline’ which is through sperms and ovum. For even children artificially born, ovum and its fertilisation by sperm is needed, though outside ovary. Even in that case, it should be placed in the ovary to grow, Hence any life on Earth has only one route to come to Earth, I.e. through ancestral and parental genes. The journey continues through various experiences of life and ends in the process called death. The genes were already transcendental to future generations. This is known as lifeline, covering the journey from the origin of life to the death of an individual and more importantly, genetic qualities being carried over to future generation.


The above derivations lead us to the conclusion that Super string theory is the physics equivalent of Life force. This field of study offers enormous scope for further research. Readers are invited to offer suggestions and take part in these discussions so that a new field of study will be opened in the field of Physics, Biology and Philosophy.
