Quantum construction of general relativistic spacetime


A construction of a model of general relativistic spacetime that arises naturally from within standard quantum theory is presented. In terms of this model all the usual structures of general relativity theory can be given a quantum-theoretic interpretation, so that the usual barriers between the two theories are absent.
