The Fairy Tale Universe

It's hard to know where I should start, because all of the top theoretical physics equations, are fairy tales! I know theoretical physicists all babbling on about how beautiful an equation is or can be! Ok, that's fine, but I honestly can't see any beauty in an equation. Not what so ever! In fact some are down right ugly and complete beasts! Which is good, am not saying there rubbish! Because clearly they are not. But why do they all look like fairy tales & fables?
 To understand the universe at the moment, I would have to learn:-

Mathematics, I would have to be really good at this, in fact I would have to be a genius mathematician!

Physics, same again.

English, because I am English and you would have to be good at this as well. But if like me and many others in England, we were not actually given any English lessons at school, because the British government have a policy of not giving good English lessons to, English people! So we all learnt to speak slang, in't?

Once you have learnt the basics the real lessons begin, in't? So now you start with the easy stuff! Like Newton's Laws of motion, laws of thermodynamics and states of entropy. Then you can move on to Einstein, with his laws of relativity and special relativity. After that your told, Einstein was good but not that good and even though he was not wrong, he still would not accept that God plays dice!
So now, we move on to quantum physics, this is where the real fun starts and ends! At same time! But, if your looking at it, it ether starts or it ends, but not both!
This is where you learn that Einstein is not compatible with quantum physics, Doh! That's exactly what he said 100 years ago!  But if he was alive today apparently,  he would had agreed he was wrong and God does play dice?
 The problem is when it comes to quantum physics, God keeps throwing a 4 and a 2. That's right! 42 sounds familiar! (I will come back to this number in another universe!) Not!

  Let's start with E=mc2, this of course is a fabel and is the title to the 100 year story that has been told. Let's start with a a quote from 1932 which is about Einsteins Equations


“  magnificent mathematical garb which fascinates, dazzles and makes people blind to the underlying errors. The theory is like a beggar clothed in purple whom ignorant people take for a king..., its exponents are brilliant men but they are metaphysicists rather than scientists... " New York Herald Tribune, September 11, 1932 Nikola Tesla. 

Very interesting quote, basically saying it's the Emperors New Clothes. Which of course it is! Every fairy tale needs a title. And why not start with a fable? Great timing, Nikola and I will of course come back to that later! And not because of what happened in 2001.

Then there is string theory, I already posted what I wanted to say about this in my blog title, but once you get into the the story it gets really interesting! As its a story that already exists but, now has been created to look like its the answer to everything and not the number 42!

Then there is the next part of the story?

" Once upon a time, there was ... 'A king!' my little readers will say right away. No, children, you are wrong. Once upon a time there was a piece of wood.... "

Do you know this one already?
