I will discuss an attempt at approaching quantum features of spacetime from a microscopic point of view. In combination with quantum gravity, one can consider a scenario in which spacetime has structure at the level of quantum interactions, and classical spacetime emerges at larger scales. This type of scenario would require entangling interactions, and a reliance on information exchange would have effects on the classical field theory.
