Axiomatisation-have you ever heard this word-that means imposing axioms(rules,laws)for every concept and so in that way replacing the intuitive concepts with axioms from which evrything else can be derived.Actually what physics do is to unravel the laws(axioms)behind the things we observe in our world but there are still some intuitive concepts in physics with vague definition like space.That's what I mean when I ask you what is space-what are the laws behind it-can you tell me?I know that LQG is not a complete theory YET-is it?And can it explain why we have precisely three dimensions,why space is continous(e.g. there is a point after each point),what is the size of a dimention(how long a line can be)and why the first four of the Euclid's postulates are true?
