there are essential properties that can be extracted
common to all such theories
and it is possible to in essence "quotient them out"

the arnowitt-deser-misner (adm) decomposition
takes full advantage of this
to provide a foliation of spacetime
giving 3+1 field equations that are useful
to exploring quantisation schemas
that don't suffer certain classes of contradictions

it's this kind of decomposition
on which is built the wheeler-dewitt equation
and theories like bohmian gravity
or the acoustic gravity theory of unruh
