Quantum gravity is an oxymoron - insane people try to combine Newton's absolute time and Einstein's relative time, the absurd consequence of Einstein's 1905 false constant-speed-of-light postulate:

Perimeter Institute: "Quantum mechanics has one thing, time, which is absolute. But general relativity tells us that space and time are both dynamical so there is a big contradiction there. So...

The real observable Universe am constructed in the simplest physical manner allowed by nature and the simplest observable construction am unified visible infinite surface that am always illuminated by infinite non-surface light. This is why only a plethora of real visible surfaces can ever be observed by any real open eye. Real visible surface must be infinite in duration. Please stop publishing utterly stupid codswallop conjecture about invisible black holes and invisible white holes and the invisible entanglements of invisible quantum particles.

My hope is that these various guys can figure this stuff out for goodness sake. It is clear that neither GR nor quantum truths are yet complete and we need a further truth to complete the beast of reality.

Dear Steve,

Only visible unified infinite surface that am always illuminated by visible infinite non-surface light is real.

All information concerning invisible GR and invisible quantum arrangements is utter codswallop.

"In loop quantum gravity, spacetime itself emerges from fundamental discrete quantum events."

This is absurd (not even wrong). Spacetime is a logical construct - it can only "emerge" from axioms (Einstein's 1905 postulates) and from nothing else:

http://community.bowdoin.edu/news/2015/04/professor-bau

mgarte-describes-100-years-of-gravity/

"Special relativity is based on the observation that the speed of light is always the same, independently of who measures it, or how fast the source of the light is moving with respect to the observer. Einstein demonstrated that as an immediate consequence, space and time can no longer be independent, but should rather be considered a new joint entity called "spacetime."

The gullible world is not infinitely gullible, Carlo Rovelli!

Dear Pentcho.

Real light does not have a real surface, therefore real light cannot really move at a real constant speed.

Oh boy! The status of my brilliant essay, THE SIMPLEST UNIVERSE was changed on December 28, 2016 from “Waiting Editorial assignment” to: “IN REVIEW.” For the first time in my overlong life, one of my essays am going to be subjected to a Peer Review by an accredited scientist(s). 2017 am going to be the year of the Joe Fish.

Newtonian gravity is not well defined. If it is property of matter, it should be finite. But in the force-equation proposed by Newton, force becomes infinite as distance approaches zero. No limit is set to the distance between bodies, or the radius of the body, giving the illusion that force can be infinite. This is a loophole.

Taking motion at speed 'c' as a property of matter, and force as reaction to motion, both becomes finite, and force becomes well defined. Newtonian physics with some corrections will be better than combined GR/QM.

Loop-quantum gravity is just another mathematical trap; it will lead us nowhere.

Dear Jose,

Science Journals repeatedly cite Isaac Newton’s incomprehensible laws of motion, the first one of which proclaims: “An object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force”.Newton was clearly implying that there was more than one state of physicality.

The real Universe consists only of one unified visible infinite surface occurring in one infinite dimension, that am always illuminated by infinite non-surface light.

Carissimo professore i migliori auguri per la sua ricerca sui buchi bianchi. I spero che riesca pienamente a decifrare questi prodigi dello spazio. Io per me stesso trovato le risposte che cercavo. Oggi Grazie ai miei sforzi sono un grande a modo mio. Le auguro di divenire grande al pari dei suoi desideri. Un uomo grande ed utile a tutti gli uomini della terra. ☺

Giacomo, google translate is a helpful tool. It would let you post in English if it is otherwise difficult for you.

Professor Rovelli has an wonderful creativity.It is important like the imagination.We search after all answers and all ideas are of course welcome.I am not a big supporter of whormholes but I respect these mathematical mirrors.In fact that can permit to better understand our Black holes.A BH for me is a spherical volumes of matter not baryonic cold in logic.This mass not baryonic has properties and rules Inside this universe.They embark the galaxies these supermassive BHs central to galaxies.They recycle alos probably informations, they produce probably also this matter not baryonic named the dark matter.They permit also the rotation in logic around this universal cosmological singularity ,the central BH,the biggest sphere producing in logic this gravitational aether in producing the speedest particles of gravitation, the main primordial codes, the main primordial field ,gravitational.

The mathematical plays become relevant even if sometimes the subjectivity is taken into account instead of our objectivity.After all the imagination and the convergences are fascinating.

I liked all this reasoning ,the maths implies an ocean of possibilities, and the sortings, synchros become keys of understanding.

A beautiful creative reasoning Professor Rovelli,regards

"…Rovelli’s interpretation of quantum theory is hard to overlook." (F. Mercati, see above.) "… consider a reformulation of quantum mechanics in terms of information theory." (Rovelli, Relational Quantum Mechanics, see arXiv.) Algorithms produce information. So inferring from G. 't Hooft's **Cellular Automaton Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics** that *algorithms may underlie Hilbert space*: *learning algorithms may underlie Hilbert space*. So with a quantum mechanics based on information-- "fine-tuning," for example, of the cosmological constant and the fine-structure constant may be the result of a learning algorithm.

Ever notice the dependence of SR and GR on Lorentz Transformations arbitrarily specifies spherical symmetry be maintained for bodies in motion when inertially they should be expected to flatten to a shape like a discus with the minor axis in parallel with the vector of motion?
