But actually superstring theory is in some ways even stranger than quantum mechanics and the theory of relativity. Current string theories thus predict that the universe is not just four-dimensional as Einstein claimed (time being a dimension) but 10 or 11- dimensional. The only reason why we experience the universe as 3-dimensional (excluding time) is that the remaining 6 or 7 dimensions are curled up into very small spaces, with a size the order of the Planck length O = 10-33 P
