If I'm right about this, it's luck, not skill.

Number #37 in the ongoing series of "questions that I can't even articulate correctly without a PhD, and if I Google it I'll just get a bunch of amateurs who've mistaken themselves for Einstein":

What if the apparent factor of 10¹²⁰ difference between the theoretical energy density of zero-point energy and the observed value of the cosmological constant is because that energy has gone into curving the 6-or-7 extra dimensions of string theory so tightly those extra dimensions can't be observed?

Testable (hah!) consequence: the Calabi–Yau manifolds of string theory would be larger (less tightly curved) inside Casimir cavities.
