Minkowski spacetime with signature and an internal space with a gauge symmetry emerge inevitably in finite projective geometry when equipped with a biquadric . These quadratic forms define neighbourhood, order and distances of points in which is thereby refolded in many world sheets overlaying each other. Elementary particle fields occur as geometric degrees of freedom deviating from a homogeneous space. They exhibit quantum effects such as non-locality, interference and fluctuations due to the superposition of points in induced by the biquadric .
