- One could argue that the polynomial Pnk= Pn∘....∘ Pn associated with the active boundary remains the same during SSFRs as long as possible. This because the increase of degree from nk to n(k+1) in Pnk→ Pnk∘ Pn increases heff by factor (k+1)/k so that the metabolic feed needed to preserve the value of heff increases.
Rather, when all roots of the polynomials P assignable to the active boundary of CD are revealed in the gradual increase of CD preserving Pnk, the transition Pnk→ Pnk∘ Pn could occur provided the metabolic resources allow this. Otherwise BSFR occurs and self dies and re-incarnates. The idea that BSFR occurs when metabolic resources are not available is very natural for this option.
- Could Pnk→ Pnk∘ Pn occur only in BSFRs so that the degree n of P would be preserved during single life cycle of self - that n can increase only in BSFRs was indeed the original guess.
