>> Should I take Computer Science to go into astrdeparentphysics?

NO!

A long time ago in the galaxy milky way, I majored in both Astronomy and CS. A'Hearn was young and bouncy and full of EXCITEMENT then. But I was too stupid to do real math, so I dropped my astronomy major -- yet I was the CS dept valedictorian. (I was graduated against my will by mom, who caught me taking grad school classes without bothering to graduate.

See, "easy A" classes like topology and group theory and predicate calculus aren't REAL math.

I was graduated against my will by mom who caught me taking grad school classes without bothering to graduate. But any mathematician will point out that computer science "math:"

- No fractions
- No negative numbers
- You only have to know how to count up to 1

That's not math; THIS is math!

>In other words, quantum mechanics observes particles that behave in an environment with minimal or no space time while relativity observes particles that behave in an environment with spacetime.

Sorry man, out of the gate your premise is incorrect. Quantum Field Theory, the most precision tested theory in physics lives in spacetime, it represents the marriage of special relativity and quantum mechanics. The problem is special to *gravitation.*

>If this theory is correct then we should be able to find the critical energy/mass where the fabric of spacetime is created. In other words, start with a small particle and reduce its size incrementally until the theory of relativity no longer explains its behavior but quantum mechanics does. At this point, we have found the threshold of spacetime and critical energy/mass.

Quantum gravity fails in the opposite regime where the systems involved become *too big* not too small. If you're mathematically inclined, you should check out Feynman's book on it:

He walks through the successes and failures of a quantum theory of gravity, it's one of this "so close, but yet so far" situations and has continued to remain a mystery. I see you're interested though in the *idea* that somehow massenergy content imposes a limit or demarcation between quantum and macroscopic behavior—in this I suggest checking out Roger Penrose's objective collapse hypothesis which tries to explain quantum behavior in terms of gravitation.

Personal theories aren't allowed on AskScience, so I've removed your post. I suggest reposting to /r/physics or /r/askphysics. Last note: Unless your idea can be put into mathematical terms, nobody will ever actually read it. Physics has long moved past the time of Faraday where written descriptions could be sufficient.

He wrote a book on the topic quantum gravity, so...
