There must exist a reformulation of quantum field theory which does not employ classical time to describe evolution, even at low energies. To achieve this goal, we have proposed a prequantum, prespacetime theory, which is a matrix valued Lagrangian dynamics on an octonionic spacetime. This is a deterministic but nonunitary dynamics in which evolution is described by Connes time, a feature unique to noncommutative geometry. From here, quantum field theory and its indeterminism, as well as…

We have recently proposed a pre-quantum, pre-space-time theory as a matrix-valued La-grangian dynamics on an octonionic space-time. This pre-theory offers the prospect of unifying the internal
