Much progress has been made in unifying strong, weak and electromagnetic interactions using gauge theories [1–4]. However the unification of these interactions with space-time still remains to be understood. One difficulty has been the ongoing problem of how to satisfactorily combine gravity and quantum theory to produce a finite perturbation theory of gravitational interactions. A complete unification of all the fields of nature should occur at the Planck energy \(\rm (\bar{h} c^5/G)^{1/2}\approx 10^{19} \, GeV\), where gravitation becomes as important at short distances as the other forces of nature.
