Supersimmetry, multidimensional superstrings and Calabi-Yau manifolds are some of the hermetic jargon that identifies a scientist "lost for ever" for science, who entered the realm of the theoretical physics that try to explain the ultimate universal truths of the cosmos. As they put, modestly, no more no less than a "theory of everything". Their leader, whom his highly IQ groupies call The Pope, is Edward Witten, a charismatic professor at Princeton. Robert Matthews wrote about this charade in the FT, reviewing Peter Woit's "Not even wrong". Apparently the theory - called M theory in its latest incarnation - is failing Popper's number one rule, the so called 'falsifiability' principle. Not one single prediction has been produced so there's no way to confront the theory with some stern realities out there. The theory then becomes the worst sort of theory, according to the words of the great physicist Pauli: it's not even wrong!
