- TL;DR Summary
- Looking for papers for alternatives to current unification efforts

I will try to word this in a way that does not violate forum rules.

As I look at the struggles of string theory and loop quantum gravity and the struggles of trying to unify quantum mechanics and general realtivity in general such as the need for a framework for quantum physics which does not exist in GR and this leading to infinities in values this leads me to wonder what if they will not unify at least in the way we currently visualize them unifying (such as a quantum version of GR). My question is whether there have been any papers published on what if unification as we currently visualize it cannot be done and a new approach (not just a new theory) is needed.
