Quantum mechanics + gravity (GR) entails minimum length in nature; as Bronstein argued in 1933, the fact that finer and finer localization requires higher and higher energy, and energy gravitates in GR, puts a limit on how finely localized something can be without the energy of localization being such as to hide the localized system inside its own Schwarzschild limit.
