start AoK. click "Index". click "N". click "Neuralglia - Proposed role
for trophic modification".

the functionality of the 'special topological homeomorphism' is the
subject of =all= of AoK, but for one of the dozen or so concise
statements with respect to it that are in AoK, start AoK. click "Short
Paper". scroll down to, and click, "minimize".

AoK is written in a tightly-integrated way that doesn't waste words.
it's also written in a hierarchical-'level' way, that Honors folks'
efforts if they Choose to read and study the paper multiple times, and,
of course, read the refs that are cited in AoK.

there are =dozens= of such 'levels'. with every reading, if the Reader
Studies while one reads, with each rereading, the stuff of the next
hierarchical-'level' 'pops-out'.

i'll gladly demonstrate in-person, although it takes weeks to work,
briefly, through all the 'levels' that're in AoK's 114 pages, which
briefly introduce NDT.
