This is Mikalai Birukou's personal site that collects writings devoted to questions about quantum mechanics and spacetime, i.e. how can these two be seen as sides of the same reality.

It is not an easy task to "marry" current understanding of spacetime, as it is currently expressed in General Relativity (GR), and physics of matter, as it is currently expressed with Standard Model (SM). I have been trying to find working approaches, and recently (since year 2010), I've stumbled upon arguments, that seem to be worthy sharing with the rest of the world.

I have three essays:
  1. The most recent paper, written in 2012, collects developed arguments into nice coherent set. It provides a clean foundation for Quantum Mechanics (QM). Unlike pure interpretations of QM mathematics, proposed postulates not only lead to QM math, but also provide a practical window into formulating spacetime theory. The next step would be to do general calculations of properties of curved spacetime along given in the paper arguments, and compare those calculations to GR.
  2. This article, written in 2011, is a "competition" essay, writing which, I happen to formulate an unconventional way of forming quantum postulates. Leaving in the age, by which QED was shown to produce incredibly sharp results, I used QED's description of fundamental particles to describe Stern-Gerlach experiment and to construct mathematical space for description. In the course of discussion a question of "interaction confinement"  arises, which is settled by results of double slit experiment, producing one of the major postulates of quantum mechanics. In contrast to this new treatment, we usually postulate a set of QM rules, and then write lots of books about double-slit experiment's weirdness (putting horse ahead of a carriage?).
  3.  This very first paper, written in the end of 2010, discusses merits of viewing spacetime as being relational and container-like. This paper gives a powerful argument about time and principle of least action. Developing ideas for further research, I argued that there may be a benefit of talking about QM through the prism of knowledge about quantum fields, which are subject of investigations at CERN, and which constitute an ultimate foundation of all matter, thus, any quantum systems. These thoughts led to paper of 2011, which in turn, provided a ground for arguments in the paper of 2012.
