Why do those laws exist? And why those particular laws and the very arbitrary sounding constants they use as opposed to other laws and constants?



Finding an explanation for physics within physics is not going to work. Metaphysics is needed.

Theoretical physicist Brian Green is confident that String Theory's proposed extra dimensions will soon put forth the correct answers to your above questions?

Present the arguments here. Don't link to videos. Show that you comprehend what is in the video.

M-theory proposes 10 or 11 dimensions. Why that number? Why should there be strings as opposed to hollow spheres or dodecahedrons? Why is there anything?

And here I sit so patiently waiting to find out what price

M-theory needs 11 dimensions because this is the only correct way to fit and explain all the fundamental forces of nature ( electromagnetism, nuclear strong, nuclear weak force, and gravity ) into it. Eleven dimensions is the only number of dimensions in which M-Theory makes any mathematical sense. Because all fundamental forces of nature, including gravity, are included in M-Theory, it is more plausible than other theories that fall apart when quantum gravity is added into the equation.

Unlike other shapes, the one dimensional string solves many of the problems associated with zero dimensional point particles associated with the Standard Model.

"All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances, And one man in his time plays many parts" - William Shakespeare

At the cost of requiring many more dimensions and an explanation of why they are not noticed. If M-theory pans out it could provide a way of eliminating the infinity problems inherent in point particles without sweeping them under the rug as QED does. But this would not be a problem if the basic unit were more than one-dimensional. Maybe a theory involving regular polygon solids and their 'ringing' modes might avoid all those extra dimensions that we do not see.

In any case, M-theory would only provide a different and possibly more powerful description of how this universe works. It would not explain why it is that this universe works that way. Or why this universe exists at all. Physics cannot explain itself.
