Energy and String Theory

In string theory, is it possible for the "folded" extra dimensions (6- or 7- manifold) to "unfold", and thus release energy?
Hi Vo Viet Anh,
All strings are in vibratory motion(s). Therefore, they unfold and fold based upon thermodynamics (temperature and quantum effects).
Depending on the ambient conditions, they will fold/unfold releasing energy.
