Sorry to have given the impression that I had rewritten them,
which hasn't happened recently.
I do plan a more extensive presentation, but I intend to leave
these alone, and my first desire is to see what objections
are raised against them (with which I remain in substantial
agreement, the only change I am inclined to in the mathematical
model would be to properly adopt the course in the prose version
in which analyticity is explicitly defined in terms of necessity).

My present inclination is to make the proposed monograph symbol-free,
but until I get much further I won't really know how cumbersome
that would be.
