This paper adopts the hypothesis that the absence of macroscopic quantum fluctuations is due to a certain universal mechanism. Such a mechanism has recently been proposed by Ghirardi et al. [Phys. Rev. D 34, 470 (1986)], and here we recapitulate a compact version of it. K\'arolyh\'azy [Nuovo Cimento 52, 390 (1966)] showed earlier the possible role of gravity and, along this line, we construct here a new parameter-free unification of micro- and macrodynamics. We apply gravitational measures for…
