More recently, theoretical physicists have proposed loop quantum gravity theory (LQG).
The presence of the -i[??]v x [nabla] dynamical space term provides a critical test of the emergent quantum gravity theory. For plane wave electrons, [psi] ~ [e.sup.(ik x r-i[omega]t)], the space interaction term changes the energy of the electrons, for uniform v,
Using techniques the applicant has recently developed with his collaborators, nearly homogeneous universes like ours can be described as states in a full quantum gravity theory (group field theory).
