Abstract: In this paper we produce a sequence of Riemannian manifolds M^m_j, m≥2, which converge in the intrinsic flat sense to the unit msphere with the restricted Euclidean distance. This limit space has no geodesics achieving the distances between points, exhibiting previously unknown behavior of intrinsic flat limits. In contrast, any compact Gromov–Hausdorff limit of a sequence of Riemannian manifolds is a geodesic space. Moreover, if m≥3, the manifolds M^m_j may be chosen to have positive scalar curvature.
