Scattering amplitudes of massive spin-2 particles generically grow with energy and lead to violations of perturbative unitarity. One way to partially soften such amplitudes is with the infinite towers of particles present in Kaluza-Klein theories. In this talk I will discuss this mechanism of unitarization and how it leads to a bootstrap procedure, analogous to the conformal bootstrap, that yields new constraints on the eigenfunctions and eigenvalues of Laplacian operators on closed Einstein manifolds.
