    Default Could quantum mechanics explain the existence of space time?



    The author indicates that this is physics from "toy universes" but it is still interesting.

    This is one of a number of main lines of research into quantum gravity.

    Other workers and programs are:

    Fay Dowker and causal set theory,
    Maldacena discovered the conformal quantum field theory - anti de Sitter space correspondence that Swingle is using,
    also Van Raamsdonk https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quantu...ergent_gravity
