Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi all. I'm running a thread in the Philosophy section about rules of the universe etc but I'm stuck on a fundamental question which probably only a current quantum mechanics expert can answer.

In essence do the most current iterations of QF theory maintain that the ultimate and irreducible state of the universe is the Quantum Field or is there anything to suggest that that is a deeper structure beneath it?

Many thanks in anticipation,

Graham

According to string theory, quantum field theory is merely an effective theory corresponding to the low-energy approximation of string theory.
