Comparably, it is "discontinuityneutral", as seen in in the belljar and in the birdcage. The objects in each of these pairs are treated as geomet rically alike in language, whereas they are wholly different objects in mathematical topology. In the other direction, a closedclass reference in certain respects is geometrically less abstract than in mathematical topology. Thus, the across schema, as in I swam across the lake, applies if my path extends between opposite points of the shore of a round lake, thus roughly bisecting the lake. But it does not apply if my path extends between two points rather close a...
