It is not possible to construct a method without a hunt bell in which all
bells do the same work but the number of leads is different from the
number of bells.
Because all the bells do the same work, each bell must find itself in
every place at at least one lead-head. Therefore, the number of leads must
be at least as great as the number of bells.
By the same token, if the number of leads is greater than the number of
bells, each bell must repeat at least one place bell. Because by
definition each lead comprises the same changes, if one place bell is
repeated, every place bell is repeated, and because the bells are all
doing the place bells in the same order the method must already have come
around.
I don't know why the Central Council definition is phrased in the way it
is.
