*Could the laws of nature originate from a principle, that borders a triviality?*

*Does a final theory that cannot be explained by yet another, deeper theory, exist? What could such a theory possibly look like — and what might we learn from it?*

These are the million dollar questions. Will the ladder of scientific explanations that take us from biology to chemistry and down through atomic, nuclear and particle physics, end somewhere? Will we one day reach a point where it is clear that it is no longer possible to dig deeper into the fabric of reality? Will we reach the bottom?

Together with the mathematician Johannes Aastrup I have developed a new approach to this question. Our theory *—* we call it **quantum holonomy theory** *—* is based on an elementary algebra, that essentially encodes how stuff is moved around in a three-dimensional space.

This algebra, which we call the *quantum holonomy-diffeomorphism* (QHD) algebra [1], is interesting for two reasons Continue reading
