'Scientific American' submission CLARIFICATION

Hi [again on this one] Dag,

My prior comments were with respect to "Scientific American" as it
existed back when NDT was being developed [1970s - what I refer to as
"SA'" "big-page days"]. It was, then, superbly-done - gifted

Since then, it's been transferred to different folks, and it's just
another 'popular science' thing - totally unsuitable for any
discussion of NDT's stuff, I agree.

But, when I prepared the package for them, the then existing practice
at "SA" would have been an excellent way to graphically communicate
the essence of the "special topological homeomorphism of central
nervous systems".

| Scientific American is a quite atypical forum. I am not surprised.
