* Some of the ideas in this and the next few sections are rather subtle, so don’t be put off if you have trouble following every link in the explanatory chain—especially in a single reading.

* Those readers who skipped over the “More Precise Answer” section of Chapter 6 might find it helpful to skim the beginning part of that section.
