Introduction. — One of the major open problems in theoretical physics is to find a theory of quantum gravity. Such a theory is needed, among other reasons, to understand the fate of spacetime singularities predicted by General Relativity (GR) for example at the inside of black holes or at the big bang [1]. While a lot of different paths have been investigated, no single approach can claim complete success yet. The fundamental roadblock in the quantisation of GR in four dimensions is that Newton… Expand
