I like the idea of defining dimension w.r.t. a physical phenomenon (a random walk)...
I too. It uses an entirely artificial notion of time, I notice.
they run the Monte Carlo randomization and come of with one sample triangulated spacetime. that geometry is "frozen" then, so that they can study it and discover dimensionality etc., volumes etc.

then using an artificial time, they run a diffusion in this frozen 4D geometry.

it is just a minor observation but i thought I would remark it anyway
