    Could the Quantum Field be a combination of all fields and live in our temporal dimension with the fabric of Spacetime?

    I've been trying to separate the quantum field from spacetime this whole time, but now I think it is only the spatial dimensions that get granted to a physical/observed/decohered object. Could the unification of QM with GR be spatial vs temporal? good god No wonder the quantum field knows of...

    Do all of our problems uniting QM with GR have to do with what the quantum field is capable of?

    I think it can do more than the wave only events we know of (superposition, entanglement, and tunneling). If the quantum field doesn't care about spatial distance, does that mean every unobserved quantum wave is already everywhere throughout the quantum field? Does it explain spooky action at a...

    Does a matter-wave that is destined to decohere become physical before the decoherence event? Does its momentum direction trigger decoherence?

    Decay of Coherence is something that can happen to decoherent particles. Coherent matter-waves do not decay. The reason decoherence can be predestined is because unobserved quantum waves do not have restrictions on future decoherence events. Waves are not physical, they are not using Spacetime...
