This is derived from Asexperia's thread on "Philochrony" which discusses the properties of Time, whereas CDT proposes a new look at the "unfolding properties of space" Causal Dynamical Triangulation (CDT) Introduction See also Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!Physics portal Asymptotic safety in quantum gravity Causal sets Fractal cosmology Loop quantum gravity 5-cell Planck scale Quantum gravity Regge calculus Simplex Simplicial manifold Spin foam https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Causal_dynamical_triangulation

Very interesting, but for me space is not matter even at the quantum level. I think that gravity could be a still unknown quantum force. We must not confuse space with stellar matter.

I don't believe that CDT describes matter, but rather fundamental generic relational quantum values that answer to logical-mathematical guiding equations. I cannot think of a better candidate for an abstract quantum than a fractal. It naturally self-forms and organizes into a homogenous geometry that allows for the emergence of the most complex patterns, based on fundamental geometric simplexes.

It seems that all of this describes an emergent evolving object that can be measured by its dimensional expressions. In the end it should be reducible to its most simplest forms. I firmly believe that there is no such thing as "irreducible complexity"
