Manz mentions all established theories in physics including quantum mechanics, general relativity, string theory and loop quantum gravity. But then he makes several statements that are incorrect.

In discussing the Big Bang, he says:

Page 2: "..it also has a radius representing how far matter has traveled across space"

Matter in the Big Bang does not explode into space. Space is created and expands in the Big Bang according to all Big Bang Theories including General Relativity

In discussing superstring theory:

page 13: "In superstring theories, space is represented by ten dimensional vibrating strings"

No, the strings are in space. They are not space itself in string theories. Only in Loop Quantum Gravity are the loops weaved into space itself.

In addition, page 16, he does not realize that LQG derives space
