The continuity (distributed structure) and the discontinuity (modular
structure) are not the exclusive property of neural webs that affect wide
areas of the brain, but their possibility is implied in the microscopic
base within themselves. This situation is found in all types of psychic
activity: emotional, rational and linguistic, although in a different way
in each of them. Language maximizes the coexistence of both types of
nervous processing maintaining them in equilibrium from the first moment. A
theory of language which is capable of assuming the two perspectives is
needed, since it is the only one that is neurologically justified.

In this book it is proposed that said theory be constructed on Gestaltic
principles; this is because Gestaltic principles formally adjust to
Topological rules, which allow us to, at the same time, be informed about
the spatial reception of the world, specific to the dominated hemisphere,
and its correlative verbalization through some form of natural language,
which is specific to the dominant hemisphere.
