Framework for possible unification of quantum and relativity theories

Abstract

We put forward a framework, inspired by recent axiomatic and operational approaches to generalized quantum theories, wherein we investigate the possibility of unifying quantum and relativity theories. The framework concentrates on a detailed analysis of a general construction of reality that can be used in both quantum and relativity theories. By means of this construction of reality we clarify some well-known conceptual problems that stand in the way of a conceptual unification of quantum and relativity theories on a more profound physical level than the purely mathematical algebraic level on which unification attempts are generally investigated. More specifically we concentrate on the problem of “what is physical reality” in quantum and relativity theories.
