Time, space, matter, particles, field, observer, system, substance… all the basic notions of the elementary grammar of our understanding of the physical world are put into question, and modified, by the current research in quantum gravity. I discuss this momentum change, how compelling are its motivations, and the novel worldview I believe is emerging: a coherent picture of the world where “time” and “space” and “objects” are not among the primary notions anymore.

This talk is part of the The Archimedeans (CU Mathematical Society) series.
