Abstract: Abstract:In quantum gravity interpretations, the role of space-and time-related concepts is debated. Some argue that these concepts are not needed to describe physical reality at the Planck scale. Others object that an operational definition of magnitudes cannot get rid of spatiotemporal notions. We propose a "conceptual test" to assess if the mathematical content of a quantum gravity theory refers to some possibly verifiable empirical model. Given that any physical model describes the evolution of a set of m…
