I did not seek to get AoK published in "SA". In the cover letter I
briefly explained that AoK contained the resolution of the problem of
decussation, that that constitutes a "Rosetta Stone" with respect to
the entirety of the nervous system and its functioning, and pointed
out that, since "SA" does its reports in a highly-graphical fashion
that it is the perfect venue through which to present NDT's
break-through with respect to the hows and whys of decussation.

The stuff I sent to "SA" was, thuus, a proposal for an article that
would have been much more delimited with respect to AoK - a
straight-forward graphical representation of the "special topological
homeomorphism" - of the neural Topology that orders everything within
nervous systems - of this "Rosetta Stone" stuff - with relatively
brief explanatory discussion.

I explained that I'd be glad to work with "SA"'s Illustrators - to
help them get everything right, etc.

I wasn't expecting "SA" to Publish AoK - just this relatively-small
thing, and everything was outlined in the cover letter that
accompanied my Publication proposal.

When I send stuff out, it's always specifically prepared with respect
to a working focus that's suited to the reality of the place to which
I'm sending it.

I =still= think this "SA" article treating decussation would be the
best-possible starting 'point' for subsequent publications with
respect to NDT's synthesis of Neuroscience.

I stand on it :-]
