In an extension of speculations that physical space–time is a fractal which might itself be embedded in a high-dimensional continuum, it is hypothesized to “compensate” for local variations of the fractal dimension by instead varying the metric in such as way that the intrinsic (as seen from an embedded observer) dimensionality remains an integer. Thereby, an extrinsic fractal continuum is intrinsically perceived as a classical continuum. Conversely, it is suggested that any variation of the metric from its Euclidean (or Minkowskian) form can be “shifted” to nontrivial fractal topology. Thereby “holes” or “gaps” in spacetime could give rise to (increased) curvature.
