We know that a space filling curve is not injective from Netto's theorem.
We know that a Peano space is a compact, connected, locally connected metric space.
Essentially in pathwise connectivity there is a continuous function from the interval $I$ into a space $X$.
And in arcwise connectivity there is a homeomorphic function from the interval $I$ into a space $X$.
We are told that every Peano space is arcwise connected.
The Hahn–Mazurkiewicz theorem says that a Hausdorff space $X$ is a continuous image of the unit interval $I$ if and only if it is a Peano space.
This Hahn–Mazurkiewicz theorem characterizes the continuous image of an interval $I$ which we know is not injective.
My question is when trying to characterize the continuous image of an interval, knowing that a space filling curve is not injective, why does this theorem contain the idea of a Peano space which is arcwise connected?
I found another theorem which says that a Hausdorff space is pathwise connected if and only if it is arcwise connected.
Does this mean that in a Hausdorff space, arcwise connectivity and pathwise connectivity become equivalent statements?
