Emergent spacetime & matter

  1. Mar 16, 2015 #1
    Supersymmetry interachanges bosons and fermions and can make bosons transform into fermions and vice versa...

    is there equivalent in quantum gravity where spacetime and matter can transform to each other and spacetime can become matter and matter can become spacetime..

    isn't something akin to this was what Einstein had been working on in the Unified Field theory? What's the modern day equivalent of interachanging spacetime and matter.. any papers, references, studies?

    Not that I fully understand it, but reading Susskind TM (book 1) has got me further into it before losing track.
