Glad you agree with my approach here. No, I haven't worked out the
mathematical details and that certainly should be on science's 'to do'
list. However there is considerable more detail on how this works and how
General Relativity emerges automatically from quantum events in my book
'Reality' on Amazon.
I can discuss more details here if they come up...
