Main Question or Discussion Point
Of all possibilties, is infinite, if any where where will the search for qg stop ?
quantum gravity is simply the study of spacetime itselfwolram said:Of all possibilties, is infinite, if any where where will the search for qg stop ?
I think the essence of your question was when will the study of spacetime (and the curved geometry we experience as gravity) stop. I am saying that this study will probably continue until we, or whatever other species they have then, figures out how to USE it....
Life-forms will usually study something until they figure out how to eat it, or cook with it, or use it as a weapon.
these generally turn out to be different kinds of burning.
this business with gravity is a classic case, wolram.
Lifeforms (whether human or not) will continue studying spacetime until they figure out how to burn it.
we have a long ways to go
Umm, I think the first question is already going away. Baryonic mass is presented in the Standard Model as an interaction, no more primary than magnetism is in EM. Now Dark Matter (nonbaryonic mass of some kind) is another question, we have no agreed-on theory of that, but if I was to make a bet, it would be that it is an interaction too.wolram said:That question sounded rude, it was not meant to be.
My thoughts were more like, may be qg is unsolvable without including the
other unknowns, "what is mass", "what is energy", and that the bottom up
method is like attempting to jump several stages of learning. clumsy uneducated
thoughts i know.
