But when a visitor from Strasbourg to Bangor said to me in 2001 “You are not mainstream!” I came out with the reply: “Not yet!”. Actually I felt the work in which I had been involved since the 1960s went back to the root intuitions or sources of algebraic topology (What is a cycle? What is a boundary? Is there a higher dimensional nonabelian version of the fundamental group?etc, etc, …), so the question of where is the main stream has debatable answers.
