Turbulent quantum spacetime

I propose that quantum spacetime behaves with turbulence, much like that dynamic of fluids. At turbulence the solutions for these unified physics would be interchangable, but more easily understood in 2+1 dimensions.

Quantized spacetime defines a nonlinear relativistic geometry interacting with a linear quantum-statistical superluminosity. A minimal continuous curvature of Planck length normally holds, beyond which a fractured spacetime conforms to lesser-dimensional structures.

i thought space is the situation to define the position of the objects relative to each other objects.
how does this definition relats to quantum spacetime that you refer?


and to say quantum space behaves like fluids is like giving space the propeties of matter which it isnt (as far as i know).

Einstein defined relativity in terms of geometry. Below the Planck scale, curved space becomes so critical toward singularity that it must either violate quantum mechanics, relativity or actual dimensionality. I would compare the proposed quantum-geometrodynamical turbulence with the nonlinear physics of fluids bounded by microscopic (linear) frictional effects.

Spacetime is often given the metaphor of a two-dimensional rubber sheet (which it isn't). Discrete particles, e. g., may behave en masse like a fluid. Equations from distinct fields of physics often yield analogous forms.
