In phenomenological quantum gravity theories, Planckian behavior is triggered by the energy of elementary particles approaching the Planck energy, ${E}_{P}$, but it is also possible that anomalous behavior strikes systems of particles with total energy near ${E}_{P}$. This is usually perceived to be pathological and has been labeled ``the soccer ball problem.'' We point out that there is no obvious contradiction with experiment if coherent collections of particles with bulk energy of order ${E…

The question of whether the fundamental laws of nature limit the ability to probe arbitrarily short distances is reviewed, and what insights can be gained from thought experiments for probes of shortest distances are examined.

We consider the behavior of macroscopic bodies within the framework of relative locality [G. Amelino-Camelia, L. Freidel, J. Kowalski-Glikman, and L. Smolin, arXiv:1101.0931]. This is a recent…

How does causality protection constrain the form of physical law

It's well known that a naive approach to quantising gravity leads to causality violation and or infinite energies. Both of which would allow one to surpass the limit of what is Turing-computable. I…
