And then we have to consider that there is no definitive experimental evidence to suggest that string theory has anything more to do with the physical universe than many other competing theories.
However if string theory proves correct, what are the implications? Just this: computer code is structured, and so too is the universe; and so, we could expect some commonality between the two structures. We already see many mathematical constructs manifesting themselves in nature: the Fibonacci numbers, the Fibonacci spiral, the Golden Ratio, as well as pi and the number e. Go figure: mathematics is also structured like computer code and the universe. In fact I'd say the latter two are grounded on the former, as are all things.
