Branched spacetime manifold

Unifying Gravity and Quantum Mechanics

A geometric model of spacetime provides a unified description of gravity and quantum mechanics.

Linked knots

Strong Force

A geometric theory of quarks results in asymptotic freedom, confinement, and gluons.

Electromagnetic field of two knots

Electroweak

Electroweak unification is a consequence of including knot geometry in the description of the electromagnetic field.


Quantum Mechanics

Quantum mechanics results from a geometric model of spacetime. This video describes:

  • Quantum interference
  • The quantum wave function
  • The double slit experiment
