# Spacetime as a Tightly Bound Quantum Crystal

@article{Vedral2020SpacetimeAA, title={Spacetime as a Tightly Bound Quantum Crystal}, author={Vlatko Vedral}, journal={arXiv: Quantum Physics}, year={2020} }

We review how reparametrization of space and time, namely the procedure where both are made to depend on yet another parameter, can be used to formulate quantum physics in a way that is naturally conducive to relativity. This leads us to a second quantised formulation of quantum dynamics in which different points of spacetime represent different modes. We speculate on the fact that our formulation can be used to model dynamics in spacetime the same way that one models propagation of an electron… Expand

We propose a formulation of quantum mechanics in an extended Fock space in which a tensor product structure is applied to time. Subspaces of histories consistent with the dynamics of a particular… Expand

Decoherence of massive superpositions induced by coupling to a quantized gravitational field

We present a simple calculation leading to the quantum gravitationally-induced decoherence of a spatial superposition of a massive object in the linear coupling regime. The point of this calculation… Expand

The answer will be a "yes" (despite looking like a violation of the Uncertainty Principle).
