Well, no more way to work on… I give up. While preparing a much longer answer to your questions and to the remark from Martin Küttler, I reach contradictions which I don’t manage to resolve (for now at least) without going into too complex considerations or creating a new language – which is definitely what I don’t want to do.

So as you said, it seems I’m not able to cross that “this is not possible” line… But in all failure there’s a lesson to learn 😉

Thank you all for your time.
