P...F proof?

Yesterday Alexey wrote me: "There are really three personalities in
the tale: Jekyll, Hyde and somebody third - what remains from Jekyll
when Hyde appears" (from VN's lecture on RLS, I translate back from a
Russian translation). According to your theory, this third personality
corresponds to Gradus in PF. In fact, you told me that S = K = G. I
was surprised not to see this in your response to Stan.

Dear Alexey,

I should probably go back and re-read the lecture on J & H. So the
third personality according to Nabokov would be J minus H?

My theory of PF indeed is S = K = G, and what underlies that is S = C,
K = C and G = C minus (C−ˆ’).

Intriguing. Could this be the P. . . F proof?

Carolyn

p.s. It may not be a fire-proof proof - - let's see who casts the
first shot.
