Hi I am a noob on here, first post. Not a physicist by any stretch, but am researching the quantum mind and a while ago came across a paper that proposed that the quantum foam (if that is the correct term, maybe spacetime?) was geometrically just a bunch of triangles. If anyone can post a link to that proposal or paper I would appreciate it. In the spirit of giving to get, here is a link to Plato on triangles:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

And every sort of body possesses solidity, and every solid must necessarily be contained in planes; and every plane rectilinear figure is composed of triangles; and all triangles are originally of two kinds, both of which are made up of one right and two acute angles; one of them has at either end of the base the half of a divided right angle, having equal sides, while in the other the right angle is divided into unequal parts, having unequal sides. These, then, proceeding by a combination of probability with demonstration, we assume to be the original elements of fire and the other bodies; but the principles which are prior to these God only knows, and he of men who is the friend God.

δυνατὰ should read mightily/loudly not "fairer" so take the translation for what its worth.
