In Section 1 the three words comprising the question “Is Reality Digital or
Analog” <D/A?> are defined further. In Section 2 Key aspects of physics are probed
using <D/A?> and contradictions pointed out. The incompatibility of an analog Gravity
and an analog-digital Quantum Mechanics are traced back to Einstein’s point-photon and
his flexible spacetime. Without a unified theory it is fruitless to decide about the basic
makeup of the universe. Space and Time, Electromagnetic Radiation, Matter and Gravity, and
Quantum Mechanics in general are examined with <D/A?>. In Section 3 <D/A?> is answered
within a new Beautiful Universe model ToE ‘Theory of Everything’ proposed from first
principles. A universal lattice of identical spherically-symmetrical interacting dielectric
nodes exchanging angular momentum through magnetic induction, in units of Planck’s
constant (h) is proposed. The 3 space dimensions and time, vacuum, matter, radiation,
dark energy and dark matter are derived from the causal, local self-assembly and
Hamiltonian evolution through interactions between neighboring nodes. Each node represents
a miniature Bloch sphere, at a variable rate depending on node rates of rotation, and the
orientation of their axis. The model explains matter as nested polyhedral patterns of nodes
locked by tensegrity yet capable of soliton-like translation. Quantum effects are the result
of the diffusion of momentum in a wave pattern through the lattice. Gravitational potential
equals node rotation, but its force is due to the spring-like twisting geometry of the node
axes in the regions of space between matter.

The starting point of quantum mechanics is the classical algebraic formula connecting
energy to momentum: energy is proportional to the squared momentum. As a result,
energy and momentum do not be treated equally. The wave equation of quantum mechanics
(a differential equation) results from the replacement of the classical energy quantity with the
derivative with time and the replacement of the momentum quantity with the derivative with
space. Both replacements have a scale factor that is the Planck constant. Similar to the classical
formula, the wave equation does not treat time and space equally, and the Planck constant
is not canceled out from both sides of the equation. That is, Planck constant remains which
describes the microscopic world. My theory of gravity is the local bending of background spacetime
based on Mach principle which, as suggested by Einstein, is described by a classical form
of second order treating time and space equally. Therefore, the Planck constant is completely
canceled out in the wave equation. In other words, the quantization of gravity does not need the
Planck constant. This is because gravity obeys Equivalence Principle. But I keep the scale factor
which describes the hierarchical structure of local universe as suggested by Laurent Nottale.

A Clifford Cl(5,C) Unified Gauge Field Theory of Conformal Gravity,
Maxwell and U(4)xU(4) Yang-Mills in 4D is rigorously presented extending
our results in prior work. The Cl(5,C) = Cl(4,C)⊕Cl(4,C) algebraic
structure of the Conformal Gravity, Maxwell and U(4)xU(4) Yang-Mills
unification program advanced in this work is that the group structure
given by the direct products U(2, 2)xU(4)xU(4) = [SU(2, 2)]_{spacetime}x
[U(1) x U(4) x U(4)]_{internal} is ultimately tied down to four-dimensions
and does not violate the Coleman-Mandula theorem because the spacetime
symmetries (conformal group SU(2, 2) in the absence of a mass gap,
Poincare group when there is mass gap) do not mix with the internal symmetries.
Similar considerations apply to the supersymmetric case when
the symmetry group structure is given by the direct product of the superconformal
group (in the absence of a mass gap) with an internal symmetry
group so that the Haag-Lopuszanski-Sohnius theorem is not violated. A
generalization of the de Sitter and Anti de Sitter gravitational theories
based on the gauging of the Cl(4, 1,R),Cl(3, 2,R) algebras follows. We
conclude with a few remarks about the complex extensions of the Metric
Affine theories of Gravity (MAG) based on GL(4,C) x_{s} C^{4}, the realizations
of twistors and the N = 1 superconformal su(2, 2|1) algebra purely in
terms of Clifford algebras and their plausible role in Witten’s formulation
of perturbative N = 4 super Yang-Mills theory in terms of twistor-string
variables.

The interplay between continuous and discrete structures results in a duality between the moduli space for
black hole types and AdS_{7} spacetime. The 3 and 4 Q-bit structures of quantum black holes is equivalent to
the conformal completion of AdS.

In my first paper, Quantum Gravity and Superconductivity, I made two
significant proposals. One, rather tongue in cheek, I proposed a method in
which the extent to which an individual is deluded defines whether or not that
individual is a crackpot. I termed this the Delusion Index. Two, I proposed the
Painleve type III equation as the background for developing a quantum theory
of magnetic induction and of gravity.
