What is the mainstream ( if there is one ) interpretation of the Wheeler - Dewitt equation $\hat{H}\Psi =0$ ?

It very important in theoretical physics, especially in quantum gravity. The Hamiltonian is a constraint in quantized general relativity. Unlike ordinary quantum field theory or quantum mechanics, the Hamiltonian is a first class constraint on physical states. We also have an independent constraint for each point in space.
