    In the framework of the largest string theory conference in the world, Strings 2019, Science and Cocktails organized a special event at Flagey in Brussels. We were sipping cocktails in the art-deco building with string theorist and science superstar Robbert Dijkgraaf as he told us all about the fundamental laws of Nature. Afterwards, cellist and composer Benjamin Glorieux performed a musical piece together with invited guests especially commissioned for the occasion, while live-video artist Klaas Verpoest accompanied them with his visual magic.

    What is string theory? What happens to stuff that falls inside a black hole? What are the fundamental building blocks of space and time? Did Nature have any choice in picking the fundamental laws of physics? What is the role of mathematics in physics?

    This talk by professor Robbert Dijkgraaf was recorded on 13 July 2019 at Flagey in Brussels. For more science lectures with dry ice cocktails and live music, visit:

He opened his forum with a joke that fell flat and that was pretty funny lol. But it was the sound of the Big bang that made me write this comment.... Because it sounds just like the ocean or the waves during a storm!!! 🤔 At 42:30 notice how it starts with binary code??? There is another popular theory in particle physics, basically the Matrix! And there is a superior being, right now they call it the Higgs Boson or God particle! 🙏

I do not think this should be a theory because at the root of any cell or molecule or Adam there is a vibration and how appropriate that that movement causes life In my opinion that is the breath of GOD ( MOVMENT AND REPOSE) if I'm correct then because of that vibration there is reality the same as our brains collide particles in recording memories

John Conway once proposed that since we 'see' the 3rd. dimension through the images to the two eyes being displaced horizontally with respect to each other, if you presented images displaced vertically with respect to each other as well that would lead to people seeing in 4 dimensions. Not that plausible an idea!

This is sermon on theoretical science: a lot of nice anecdotes of the past and possibilities of the future yet nothing not heard of before. Sound conclusions most of the time but unsubstantiated theories at some junctures. However to have a 45 minute talk giving definitions of what we perceive to be reality is an accomplishment, you left out quarks and some quantum mechanic theorist suggest there are 5 forces not 4.

Very interesting lecture. That's made me more clear and sure about some small "bugs" in the theories explained that I found in the book of Professor Stephen Hawkins "A Brief History of Time", also in one of the diagrams in this lecture, need to "fix the bug" in order to correct that "bug" will give better perspective to understand the BIG BANG theory. I have my own small theories between the drops of knowledge. I am not sure if one of the scientists will be interesting to hear., by thinking another freak talking nonsense.

Is there an equal or mirror strings open and closed, on the inside of the black holes as an example if the open strings can combine to close a string, why does it fly off? What happens on the inside of the event horizon to those open strings and/or closed strings? Is there a corollary? does a open loop also get closed inside? could the loop be closed but trapped in the event horizon, and just look open, what happens to the other parts inside when an outside closed loop is formed at the event horizon?

at what point in time does the gravity, electro magnetism, weak force and strong force equal themselves around different sized balck holes? How does the speed of light aka photons come into play here? if time slows and speed is a constant relative to time What does that mean for a photon near a black hole? is there a ratio between these two? Have we looked for black holes that have these two measurable/ Can they ever be inverted with the size of a black hole? does the ratio if it exists allow for scaling or constant or variable that would map to different sized black holes?

Talking about dark matter and dark energy makes you no different than people explaining everything with religion

Earth is like running train. When we avail running train it is still and nature is moving. Similarly earth is still and sun, stars are moving. When train halts nature also stops. Similarly, when earth halt sun also stop. Time will stop but space will be there. Time and space completely independent with respect to each other. Our universes are curved. Time only flows from past to future in 3d unary system. 4d is time independent infinity. There is no relation between time and space.

The Quran does point to a multiverse. It says “Allah, the Lord of the worlds”. Quran also says there are different beings and bound by different rules of creation. Also states the universe was created from nothing and is ever expanding and can be rolled up as carpet. Also states the entire universe can be destroyed and recreated in an instant. Interesting concepts from an unlearned messenger 1400 years ago. Proof this knowledge could have only been passed on by the Creator of everything, Allah, to help humankind.

This is a comedy right ? Come on...a sun that burns bright and yet darkness at same time ? Come on . A sun that burns hot and yet space is cold ? Yet holes in space called stars have eternal light behind then. Earth is the center of a huge hollowed out dead world. Humans are very tiny . Humans are not big. These beings are liars. To call them human would be a lie. I looked up what a liar is , a human. A liar by any other name ( human ) is still a liar. I laugh at how they still believe In lies of gods.
