The philosophical basis of the Arrangement Field Theory (AFT)

Fabrizio Coppola

Abstract


The Theory of the Arrangement Field of the space-time points is briefly exposed and its basic philosophical background is outlined. The Arrangement Field Theory has been proposed in 2012 by Diego Marin and intends to be a theory of everything, capable to describe all particles as different manifestations of a single, unified field. This new conception might represent a remarkable improvement of current Quantum Field Theory. It also includes some features of String Theory and Loop Gravity. In the AFT, distance between points of space-time are regulated by quantum amplitudes, so that concepts as "near", "far" or "between" become limited, and quantum entanglement can find an elegant explanation.
