Popular materialist views now conceive of objects as a kind of “lumpy energy” according to the tenets of quantum mechanics theory. However, there is no single theory of quantum mechanics but only competing interpretations that have been neither confirmed nor refuted. Recent directions in theoretical physics point to multidimensional “strings” of space–time that may comprise the fundamental fabric of the universe while providing a unifying paradigm for the divergent worldviews of general relativity theory and quantum mechanics.
