I'm not sure what you mean by 'collapse'. Do you mean, "Is is possible to invent a theory
which has only a one-dimensional Remannian manifold?" Sure, but I don't think you can
make it agree with physical observations.
In my view, these are models we invent to try to understand the world; so we need our
model to be understandable. That's one of my objections to a lot of 'everything' theories
like Tegmark's; they hypothesize a model that is incomprehensible in order to 'explain'
something - it's like "God did it and God works in mysterious ways."
