We study the quantum constraints of a conformal invariant action for a scalar field. For this purpose we briefly present a reformulation of the duality principle advanced in [1] in the context of generally covariant quantum field theory, and apply it to examine the finite structure of the quantum constraints. This structure is shown to admit a dimensional coupling (a coupling mediated by a dimensional coupling-parameter) of states to gravity. Invariance breaking is introduced by defining a preferred configuration of dynamical variables in terms of the large scale characteristics of the universe. It this configuration a close relationship between the quantum constraints and the Einstein equations is established.
