String Theory: Why does our universe look the way it does?

The laws of the very little and the laws of the very large have never been combined into one set of rules that encompass both. This is science's most complicated enigma. The laws of physics start to break down and/or not apply when you get down to the atomic sizes and measurements of matter in turn some individual particles may not be strictly bound buy the laws of physics.
Superstring theory tries to tie it all together.

A quote from my favorite scientist

“It is often stated that of all the theories proposed in this century, the silliest is quantum theory. In fact, some say that the only thing that quantum theory has going for it is that it is unquestionably correct.”
Michio Kaku, Hyperspace: A Scientific Odyssey Through Parallel Universes, Time Warps, and the Tenth Dimension

The only problem with this theory is that the math and formulas allow things to get a little weird and in some cases a lot weird! The strangest thing is that these concepts and equations all could be true and right.
It seems that the more I look into this 'meshing of quantum theory and Einsienian physics' the more confused I get. Most things scientific can be explained in the layman's terms we all understand if the orator has a vivid imagination and the ability to express themselves.
The late Dr.Isaac Asimov was this kind of Novelist and instructor. Asimov wrote over 300 novels and short stories, little known he also wrote at least that many college books, manuals, and school lab instruction books. But I'm afraid even Isaac couldn't explain it to where the common man can get it. Well, here is a site that kinda explains things.
