Ghirardi-Rimini-Weber model with massive flashes

Antoine Tilloy

(Submitted on 12 Sep 2017)

We introduce a modification of the Ghirardi-Rimini-Weber (GRW) model in which the flashes (or collapse space-time events) source a classical gravitational field. The resulting semi-classical theory of Newtonian gravity preserves the statistical interpretation of quantum states of matter in contrast with mean field approaches. It can be seen as a discrete version of recent proposals of consistent hybrid quantum classical theories. The model seems to be in agreement with known experimental data and introduces new falsifiable predictions: (1) particles do not attract themselves, (2) the 1/r gravitational potential of Newtonian gravity is cut-off at short (≲10−7m) distances, and (3) gravity makes spatial superpositions decohere at a rate inversely proportional to that coming from the vanilla GRW model. Together, the last two predictions make the model experimentally falsifiable for all values of its parameters.

what is called gravity is the result of quantum collapses in the wave function.

so gravity isn't a fundamental spin-2 field which when quantized gives gravitons, nor spacetime curvature

but quantum collapses in the wave function of particles.

comments? maybe there is no "unification" of gravity with the other 3 forces, in terms of gravitons, gravity is simply the emergent property of a system of the other 3 forces and quantum wave function collapse.
