Title: Quantum Cosmology  à la  Polymerization                                      


In this talk, I’ll review the pre-geometric notion of the world to see what lies before the emergence of geometry if we are to consider quantum mechanics and general relativity seriously.

Later, I shall jump to construct an effective Brans-Dicke theory in a Bianchi spacetime by the method of polymerization and to see its implication in the early universe.
