If i'm not mistaken, Superstring/M-theory is an extension of general relativity. http://arxiv.org/PS_cache/hep-th/pdf/0504/0504089.pdf [Broken] extends the methods of differential geometry.
We have to name all phenomena we sense (both directly and indirectly), otherwise we could not say much of anything. Also we have to distinguish between abstract quantities and absolute quantities (i.e photons are absolute because we sense them).
What you are saying contradicts http://relativity.livingreviews.org/Articles/lrr-2001-4/download/lrr-2001-4.pdf [Broken] which assumes the complete physical equivalence of a gravitational field and a corresponding acceleration of the reference system.
Quantum mechanics tells us that the universe is governed by particles, their intrinsic properties and interactions. The so-called sea of energy is the most important.
If time is quantized by seconds then one second is defined to be exactly 9,192,631,770 cycles of the hyperfine structure transition frequency of caesium-133 atoms. Could time and energy levels be related?
I think that the electromagnetic...
SR makes two fundamental assumptions:
1) The speed of light is independent of the motion of the light source or receiver. That is, the speed of light is the same in all reference frames in uniform motion, with respect to the source.
2) Space is isotropic and uniform. The fundamental laws...
Seems like much of our understanding of nature comes from geometry (differential geometry). This is not so good because nature is only about particles, their intrinsic properties and interactions. Here comes the difficult part.
In chemistry for example, no geometry is needed. We know over...
The article is not completely false. QFT considers the vacuum ground state not to be completely empty, but to consist of a seething mass of virtual particles and fields. This might also be related to the cosmological constant in general relativity.
