Having isolated a four-world picture in which four symmetrical universes in different spacetime domains coexist and in which an isolated two-dimensional intrinsic spacetime underlies the four-dimensional spacetime in each universe, and having shown that the special theory of relativity rests on a four-world background elsewhere, we review the geometry of spacetime/intrinsic spacetime in a long-range metric force field within the four-world picture in the four parts of this paper. We show within an elaborate programme that the four-dimensional metric spacetime and its underlying two-dimensional intrinsic metric spacetime undergo two stages of evolution in the sequence of absolute spacetime/absolute intrinsic spacetime → proper spacetime/proper intrinsic spacetime → relativistic spacetime/relativistic intrinsic spacetime in all finite neighborhood of a long-range metric force field and that these are supported by a sequence of spacetime /intrinic spacetime geometries. The programme takes off in this first paper by isolating two classes of three-dimensional Riemannian metric space namely, the conventional three-dimensional Riemannian metric space and a new 'three-dimensional' absolute intrinsic Riemannian metric space.
