Abstract
We put forward a framework, inspired by recent axiomatic and opera-
tional approaches to generalized quantum theories, wherein we investigate
the possibility of unifying quantum theories and relativity theories. The
framework concentrates on a detailed analysis of a general construction
of reality, that can be used in both, quantum and relativity theories. By
means of this construction of reality we clarify some well known conceptual
problems that stand in the way for a conceptual unification of quantum
and relativity theories on a more profound physical level than the purely
mathematical algebraic level on which now unification attempts are in-
vestigated. More specifically we concentrate on the problem of 'what is
physical reality' in quantum and relativity theories.
