comment How could spacetime become discretised at the Planck scale?
Thank you, I'm going to spend some time researching the other stack questions and the references from Penrose and Daniels answer. For now the issue of a Lorentz invariant quanta of spacetime seems to me like an interesting concept worthy of further research.

Thank you for your answer. I'll get reading the references you've supplied. I may be some time :S

comment What are the current (popular(ish)) approaches to modelling the quantum nature of spacetime at the Planck scale?
@kakemonsteret In the QM I've studied I don't recall ever coming across discretised space or time variables for free particles. I'm pretty sure they're continuous variables, or have I missed/forgotten something?

The quote in question is on page 203 but if required I will transcribe it onto here..

comment What are the current (popular(ish)) approaches to modelling the quantum nature of spacetime at the Planck scale?
This is a question loosely based on a quote from Penrose's 'Cycles of Time'. I was trying to appreciate (at least in essense) the range of different theories that lead to a discretised spacetime, whether or not full GR has thus far been incorperated.
