You have some type of gadget - let us call the gadgets 'hyperbananas'.
One hyperbanana may well 'sit inside' another bigger hyperbanana.
Some hyperbananas may have a useful/weird/desirable property of
-- Fit 2
Somebody proves that every hyperbanana sits inside a callifragilistic
-- Fit 3
Somebody proves that for any hyperbanana X there is callifragilistic
hyperbana X' with the property that, whatever the callifragilistic
hyperbana Y, if X sits inside Y then X' also sits inside Y.
Under these circumstances one would say that X' was a callifragilistic
completion of X.
I must admit that I had to re-read it an half dozen times to fully
understand it, since those flying hyperbananas kept making me laugh (I
couldn't stop from imagining hypergorillas trying to catch them)! :-D
Thank you again, both for the math insight and for the fun!
