Extending Space-Time with Property

Space-time provides an excellent framework to describe the “when” and “where” of particles and events. When you wish to discuss “what” was present however, you need to supply additional information in the form of fields and quantum numbers. We suggest the addition of property coordinates to space-time to describe the “what” may provide answers to some outstanding problems in physics. We choose these property coordinates to be anti-commuting Lorentz scalars. In this talk we consider what happens to general relativity when these coordinates are introduced, and the resulting unification of gravity with the other forces, as well as the production of a cosmological constant. This was achieved through the use of Mathematica, and I also outline some of the techniques we used.
