Description: As of today, the mechanism underlying the generation of mass scales in field theory remains elusive. Here we show how the concept of fractal space-time having minimal deviations from four-dimensionality (the so-called minimal fractal manifold defined through e = 4 - D, with e << 1) can naturally account for the onset of these scales. A counter-intuitive outcome of this analysis is the deep link between the minimal fractal manifold and the holographic principle.
