It is possible to construct a grand unified model, including gravity, by adjoining further anticommuting coordinates to space-time. We carry out this program for SU(5) and SO(10) unified models; curiously, the former is much more economical than the latter and simply requires five complex Grassmann variables ξm in addition to the four xμ.
