There are several approaches to quantum gravity. The most well known approach is string theory (M-theory), followed by loop quantum gravity. Temporal topos (t-topos) is an application of a modified topos over a category with a Grothendieck topology. We give explicit formulations in terms of t-topos for characteristic microcosmic phenomena such as wave-particle duality, uncertainty principle, and quantum entanglement. In order to claim that t-topos theory is leading to quantum gravity with the same mathematical model, i.e., t-topos, we need to formulate also relativistic notions as a light cone, gravitational effect by mass, black hole, and big bang. The main devises of t-topos as a unifying theory of microcosm and macrocosm are the notions of a (micro) decomposition of a presheaf and a (micro) factorization of a morphism of a t-site. Before the chapter on t-topos, we provide the necessary mathematical background from categories, sheaves, cohomologies, and D-modules, which can be useful to study the connections to twister covering cohomology, abstract differential geometry, and p-adic string theory.
