Einstein Does Not Fit: The Fundamental Problem in Physics Today

  • Lars Jaeger


The world view of modern physics is based on two fundamental theories: quantum field theory and general relativity. One describes the atomic and subatomic world of the microcosm, the other the macrocosm of galaxies and the universe as a whole. There is apparently no overlap between these theories of the extremely large and the extremely small. Both theories lose their validity or applicability as soon as they approach the scale appropriate to their counterpart.
