String theory is a scientific attempt to explain a spiritual anomaly. Anything that binds suggests a direct relationship with our inner self. This is traditionally seen as the silver cord that holds the spiritual and physical together.
Psychological / emotional perspective: In a psychological sense, string – like rope – can be seen as a link between two objects or aspects of our lives. We may not have made the connection before in waking life.
Material aspects: String appearing in dreams signifies some sort of binding, perhaps to make something secure. It may also represent trying to hold a situation together.
Vision: Tying a knot: even if a certain matter looks very difficult right now, the confusion will be resolved soon. Cutting string: you will be painfully disappointed. Looking at a tan- gled-up ball of string: it’s time to bring order into a chaotic situation. Untangling a string: you will have to “grin and bear it” right now. Looking at a straight piece of string: the next few days will be uneventful.
Depth Psychology: A string could be a symbol of the “guidelines” that are giving direction to your life.
A string wrapped around a package: success in a certain project.
If the string is cut: the project will fail. See Thread.
