  Abstract:
Recently [1], it was shown that quantum effects of matter could be identified with the conformal degree of freedom of the space-time metric. Accordingly, one can introduce quantum effects either by making a scale transformation (i.e. changing the metric), or by making a conformal transformation (i.e. changing all physical quantities). These two ways are investigated and compared. Also, it is argued that, the ultimate formulation of such a quantum gravity theory should be in the framework of the scalar-tensor theories.
