Particles of space

Anyone here familiar with loop theory?

Basically, space isn't infinite, but made up of a finite (but utterly huge) number of particles.

Theory being that "infinity" isn't possible, since any fraction is infinity, therefore half infinity is infinity, as is an "infinitely small" fraction of infinity, as is two inches.

Accepting loop theory and the "granular" aspect of space solves the integration of quantum physics with relativity, and explains the inability for the LHC to find predicted sub atomic particles that String Theory was hoping would be there.

It's all revealed in "Reality is not what it seems". It's all about quantum gravity. Fascinating.

I'm prepared to bet "No", ever since monopole left GUT.

Could be a one dimensional Klein bottle made up of large granular branes.

I'd rather have a frontal lobotomy than a Klein bottle in front of me.

We all have large, granular branes here.

Glandular. Not the same thing.

No, DJKH, but very interesting indeed! Thanks for bringing this here
