Instead of superstrings having 10 unitary dimensions (6 of compactified space and 3+1 of ordinary spacetime), imagine these 6 compactified spatial dimensions being of fractal value (3/6=1/2) relative to the 3 apparent dimensions of space.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

This corresponds as adimensional dualityto the 6 dimensional phase space of quantum mechanics, where each of three orthogonal dimensions is assigned both a spatial and a momentum phase (6/3=2).

Is there any merit to this pattern being a legitimate duality?
