### Clarification

The strand conjecture is a candidate for a complete description of fundamental physics. Alternatively, it is a candidate for a complete description of motion. Its fundamental principle: Crossing switches of otherwise unobservable, fluctuating strands define all Planck units and all observable processes in nature. The consequence: Particles are tangles of fluctuating strands. Space is a network of fluctuating strands. Gravity and curvature are inhomogeneous strand networks. Horizons are weaves of strands. Motion minimizes crossing switches.

Anybody can check the conjecture. Ideas are simple. Publications are accessible. Predictions are clear.

### Plus

The strand conjecture reproduces general relativity and the full standard model, including the particle spectrum, the interaction spectrum and the gauge groups. Read about this here.

The strand conjecture predicts to reproduce the values of particle masses, mixing angles and coupling constants.

The strand conjecture predicts the lack of physics beyond the standard model and beyond general relativity.

All predictions derive from the fundamental principle.

All predictions agree with experiment. Since 2014.

None of the predictions is made by any other candidate conjecture.

Nothing unexplained is left over – in fundamental physics.

### Minus

Calculations of the standard model constants are not yet precise.

The strand conjecture cannot predict human behaviour. It is **not** a
theory of everything.

### Bonus

No hype possible: No new effects. Not mythical. Not a paradigm shift. Not a big deal.

No misuse possible: No new power. No secret knowledge. No new age nonsense. No salvation. No eternal bliss. Not magic. Not a holy grail.

Pretty: Just a few lines that fit on a T-shirt. Simple topology, geometry and algebra.

* * *

The strand conjecture promises to be a *complete description of
motion*. Here, `complete' means that all motion is described, and that
all that motion is described precisely. The sober expression *complete
description of motion* is preferable to the more sensational
expressions that are used in other fields. For example, the term `theory
of everything' is nowadays used for unsuccessful esoteric healing attempts;
it is also used for bad films. The expression `grand unified theory' is
used for a group of mistaken physics approaches that are neither unified
nor theories. The term 'final theory' is reserved for titles of bad books
and bad films. Expressions starting with `super...' are used for several
unsuccessful attempts. The term `world formula' is reserved for bad
theatre plays – and also for calculating the optimal way to park a
car backwards.
