The biggest problem in theoretical fysics are the calculation-horrors that come along with working with tensors. These mathematical objects are necessary in order to describe our space-time-manifold, yet they all are necessary because our "world" has to be Lorentzian and flat when viewed at locally. In this flat world we like to measure things.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If we were to be able to give up the concept of distance then tensors would not anymore be necessary in order to maintain covariance, right ???

i think that the concept of fysical dualities is the most fundamental off all. Like T-duality shows us in string theory, there is a minimal distance at which we should study the universe, because when looking at even smaller scales the fysical laws and rules would not change anymore. Here distance has been beaten by dualities.

Have dualities ever been beaten by distance ??? I think not...

How bout that for a change, hmm???
