B Looking for a citation of Nima Arkani-Hamed

  1. Nov 13, 2018 #1
    I'm looking for a citation from Nima Arkani-Hamed about the nature of space-time that stated more or less the following and despite searching can't find again. It was something sort of "we must get rid of the notion of space and time in physics but, since physics itself was always at bottom a theory which rest of the notion of space and time in the first place, one wanders if then we are doing physics at all?" Can someone help me? Thanks in advance.

    Isn't it any more than Nima Arkani-Hamed's "End of Spacetime"/"Doom of Spacetime" talks? i.e.
    He may just have not written up his ideas in a paper.
