Inmost approaches to fundamental physics, spacetime symmetries are postulated a priori and then explicitly implemented in the theory. This includes Lorentz covariance in quantum field theory and diffeomorphism invariance in quantum gravity, which are seen as fundamental principles towhich thefinal theory has to be adjusted. In this paper, we suggest, within amuch simpler setting, that this kind of reasoning can actually be reversed, by taking an operational approach inspired by quantum… CONTINUE READING
