In this moment there arises the need to check the hypotheses and arguments from these those who are formulated, necessarily, to take sides and to react.
When these contradictions became evident one presented the opportunity to write this publication that tries to transmit this position before the reaction from which beginning future investigations, projects and own arguments, a capture of coherent party with the learned and shared in the latter years.
