Good summary.

As far as they represent, physically or materially, the relevant  
computation, assuming MEC+MAT. OK.

MGA 2 will give one more step forward the idea that the materiality  
cannot play a relevant part in the computation. I will try to do MGA 2  
tomorrow. (It is 21h22m23s here, I mean 9h22m31s pm :).

I have to solve a conflict between two ways to make the MGA 2. If I  
don't succeed, I will make both.

Thanks for trying to understand,
