The failure of all attempts to unify gravitation with other fundamental interactions has lead to an abandonment of point particles and differentiable spacetime of General Relativity and Quantum Theory, including Quantum Field Theory. While Quantum Superstrings (or M-Theory) and other Quantum Gravity approaches work with a lattice like structure or extended objects, several unanswered questions remain. The book describes another approach in which oscillators at the Planck scale from a background Quantum Vacuum are fundamental. We describe how this leads to the formation of the elementary partic
