Are there any theories/papers/thoughts that view spacetime as being a condensate, basically a superfluid of spacetime, akin to the Higgs field? I see the pictures and equations that describe the inflation of the (observable) universe- the curvature of spacetime... and wonder if there might be a Mexican Hat to spacetime; a ground state aka an inflection point at what we currently calculate as 'being' the big bang?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
