So space/time theorists state that time is made up of 'grains' of space time which grow out of the past, as opposed to Einsteins classical theory which ignores quantum mechanics. By 'grains' do they mean physical matter?

What is your opinion on space/time and its theories?

I've never heard of "grains" before, but I can only assume they're a metaphor for what they're actually trying to describe. So I doubt it.

I just read A Briefer History of Time by Stephen Hawking, it discussed all the things likes finding a quantum theory and Einstein's theories. Pretty interesting. I didn't get any of it except the black hole stuff

Read an introductory text on Modern Physics. You have much to learn...

good read, but there are a lot of black holes in his theories.

Ba-dum-pish

And I've never heard of the concept you're describing.

yea, I know a little about quantum mechanics (enough to hold a conversation) and I've never heard of these "grains"

are you maybe thinking about string theory?

theres more than two possible outcomes for each event.look at a lightcone for instance and see how many possible paths there are for it to take after the event
