By attaching five (complex) anticommuting property coordinates to the four (real) commuting spacetime ones, it is possible to accommodate all the known fundamental particles in their three generations. A general relativistic extension to spacetime-property can be carried out such that the gauge fields find their place in the space-property sector and the Higgs scalars in the property-property sector. The full curvature is the sum of the gravitational curvature, the gauge field Lagrangian and the Higgs field contribution; property curvature may be linked to the cosmological term. © 2006 IOP Publishing Ltd.
