Summary: The present account constitutes a further elaboration of the idea that “geometry/space” is always the result of functions that characterize it, which is also in accordance with the point of view that “physical geometry” is the outcome of the physical laws. The same lies also at the root of a “relativistic quantization”, where functions are transformed into sections of appropriate (topological) algebra sheaves, corresponding to a “relativistic localization”, while the indispensable, in that context, “dynamics” is further accomplished, by employing an abstract form, à la Leibniz, viz. no “space”, at all(!), of the classical differential geometric machinery, that is, in terms of the so-called “abstract (alias, ‘modern’) differential geometry” (ADG). This enables one to exercise herewith, even a quite general context, as, for instance, topos theory, or what we may call topological algebra schemes, an “Einstein (topological) algebra space”, being, in effect, a particular instance, thereat, in terms thus of which one can formulate, for example, Einstein’s quantized equation (in vacuo).
