Hi PF(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I was wondering about the problem of quantum gravity, and maybe the reason why we struggle so much with a formulation of quantum gravity is, that spacetime itself is the source to all quantum phenomena.

The evidence is, that with the standard model, we describe the quantum phenomena, except the gravitational quantum phenomena. Now the standard model is all the physics inside spacetime, but what about spacetime itself? Could it be, that it is spacetime that is causing all the quantum behaviour of particles, like wavefunctions etc., and that spacetime then does not have a quantum description, since it is the source of quantum phenomena, and thereby is deterministic in structure?
