This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.
• Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.

are u a crap?- extension of string -theory?? :D LOL.. it is a term which consists of theories like the String theory, the Black Hole theory, the theory of relativity, etc... M- professionally has no extension but it can be referred as Miracle, Master or Magic(refer Stephen Hawking's Grand Design). :)

'M', I guess stands for all the unexplained events of the universe, for mystery, magic and human thinking..

It means multiverse, because you have a lot of separate universes and ours is just one of them
