Despite U falseness (whole courses joined by bobs are false against one
another) it is possible to make a universally true peal of the method using


By taking advantage of where the falseness appears multi-part, tenors
together callings using bobs, too, are also possible:


Use of I/V (which are consecutive leads in a K lead-end method with fourth
place bobs) may allow arguably simpler callings:


If you don’t mind lots of calls and the tenors all over the place you can
even squeeze a surprising amount of music out of the method:



Or if it’s a quarter peal length one wants:

Fourth place calls.

back rounds.

Fourth place calls.
Contains 18 each 56s and 65s, 12 each 8765s, 8756s, 5678s off the front and
6578s off the front, 6 each 8765s off the front and 8756s off the front, 3
each 7568s and 7658s, 11 little bell rollups at the back, 28 little bell
rollups at the front, and back rounds.

Perhaps even AJB could enjoy that last one, or at least not find it
horribly disappointing.

The line of the method is arguably well suited for difficult bells, too, as
it contains few dodges.

“You would need, of course, to study and digest Riemann’s mathematics
in order to master the technique to read and use [Einstein’s field
equations]. It takes a little commitment and effort. But less than is
necessary to come to appreciate the rarefied beauty of a late
Beethoven string quartet. In both cases the reward is sheer beauty and
new eyes with which to see the world.”
