From an axiomatic standpoint, there are two approaches to theoretical physics. The first aims to extend, expand and deepen an existing theory; which is what the overwhelming majority of theorists do. This approach assumes that the theory is fundamentally correct, that is, its axioms are thought to correspond to fundamental aspects of reality. Working from mature theories also demands in-depth knowledge of the subject, specialization, and leads generally to incremental advances.

The second approach, which is the one chosen here, is to create a new axiom set and derive a theory from it. If the axiom set, as is the case here, is distinct and exclusive, then it requires little knowledge of other theories. In fact, one must make sure that such knowledge will not interfere with the rigorous axiomatic derivations this approach requires (though it will be necessary at some point for the new theory to explain the tested predictions with mature theories). Most importantly, when sufficiently developed, such theory will need to be not only internally consistent and but consistent with model independent observations. This is where QGD is at now.

Below is the much updated version of *Introduction to Quantum-Geometry Dynamics*. QGD has continued to evolve as I got a better understanding of the implications of its axioms. This version, retitled Quantum-Geometry Dynamics (and axiomatic approach to physics) contains the most up to date derivations, all of which been checked to insure that they are consistent with QGD’s axiom set.
