I guess that you can't be bothered to read it for yourself. OK, but
why advertize the fact? I guess you don't understand category
theoretical stuff... OK. Section 6.3 and 6.4 are very nice formal
treatments of the idea that I am exploring, the Stone duality thing that
I am often sputtering on and on about. ;-) My idea is that Boolean
algebras can evolve via non-exact homomorphsims. ;-) I just don't happen
to think or write in formal terms.

The following preprint is available from the Mathematics ArXiv at the
O. Caramello, "Topological Galois Theory"
We introduce an abstract topos-theoretic framework for building Galois-type
theories in a variety of different mathematical contexts; such theories are
obtained from representations of certain atomic two-valued toposes as
toposes of continuous actions of a topological group. Our framework subsumes
in particular Grothendieck's Galois theory and allows to build Galois-type
equivalences in new contexts, such as for example graph theory and finite
This work represents a concrete implementation of the abstract methodologies
introduced in the paper "The unification of Mathematics via Topos Theory",
which was advertised on this list two years ago. Other recent papers of mine
applying the same general principles in other fields are available for
