- TL;DR Summary
- What is your opinion about Freeman Dyson's opinion on the unification of General relativity and quantum physics?
In this video, Freeman Dyson shows a peculiar opinion when the subject comes about the unification of GR and Quantum physics. In fact, while the most currently opinion is to support or String theory, or QLG, Dyson claims that maybe nature has two different aspect of itself. With this he means that it is not necessarily true that QM and GR need to be unified, since they are two different aspect of physics.
I would like to know your opinion about this. I see this as one of the most interisting and maybe, radical, point of view of the nature and the laws of physics. While i am not sure if i support that opinion or not, i think this is really a justifiable way to see the science. Considering physics is actually a experimental science, both QFT and GR describe pretty well the phenomenons in their respective "domain". So, considering this, in fact it does not seems necessary to search a way to join both fields, but maybe just improve each one individually and separatelly.
But, if i see by the theoretical point of view, this way to see the nature is really radical.
What is your opinion?
Of course Freeman is a mathematician, but i am sure he knows the impact of this point of view in physics.
