- TL;DR Summary
- The mathematical operator view might be extended.

Maybe expand the number of operators to phenomena that haven't been considered.

What do you think about using operator theory to model spacetime?

1. In Newtonian physics, F = ma describes exactly describes mass m at an exact point x, a force F, and acceleration a by absolute and independent x and time t.

2. In quantum mechanics, physics moved to an energy description including a trade off between time and energy. There is uncertainty in the state and a tradeoff between location and movement.

Instead of just solving a differential equation, mathematics changed to an operator view and a Hilbert space for solutions.

3. Quantum Electrodynamics introduced special relativity so mass and energy, time and space are related. The operator view increased and was named Quantum Field Theory. Now operators also described charge, mass, rotation, and others.

4. General Relativity replaced force with spacetime geometry. But quantum field theory continued using the idea of gravitational force through mass and energy.

The newest concepts have been quantized. There are still some concepts that have not been quantized. Quantum states can be discrete and continuous.

The mathematical operator view might be extended.
