"But now, almost a century after Einstein's tour-de-force, string theory gives us a quantum-mechanical discription of gravity that, by necessity, modifies general relativity when distances involved become as short as the Planck length. Since Reinmannian geometry is the mathetical core of genral relativity, this means that it too must be modified in order to reflect faithfully the new short distance physics of string theory. Whereas general relativity asserts that the curved properties of the universe are described by Reinmannian geometry, string theory asserts this is true only if we examine the fabric of the universe on large enough scales. On scales as small as planck length a new kind of geometry must emerge, one that aligns with the new physics of string theory. This new geometry is called, quantum geometry."

Nigel was polite enough to offer some discriptive views for extending awareness that I thought I too would indulge.

To raise the issue, to include the GR perspective, one has to retain some comprehension and viewing of the hyperdimensional realities when it comes to the geometries?

This forces us to include issues of SR together wth GR in a valid approach to using quantum geometry, describing quantum gravity?
