"A new approach to quantum theory first put forward by the American scientist John Schwarz. If you think of the observable universe as an expression of ten-dimensional matrix, all physical aspects of the world can be explicated as vibrations of a 10-33 cm 'string'. This string is the ultimate expression of all physical phenomena."
-- OMG, Chapter 38 (DH)
The Universal Superstring is basically something that is very important. If it's cut, then the universe would cease to exist.
