Indeed he is a lousy mathematical writer. Lousy to the extent that, as you say, it's impossible to know if he's onto anything or if he's just a jargon juggler. I've offered to work with Victor to improve his voluminous tome to where I at least, can understand it and assure the definition are coherent and consistent. It's been futile work, as though the text is pristine as it stands.
I my current attempt, so far I gotten that a funciod is a filter over a produce of sets. But wait, there's yet more to come, for as he indicated, it's basically a filter of a product, without filling in the details or completing the definition so I know what difference he has in mind between being a filter and being basically a filter.
It would also help were his text in TeX instead of pdf for TeX is easier for me to use when discussing his stuff with him. A TeX version however, seems beyond the prospecting Abel prize aspirant willingness or capabilities.
Though the topic of his musings interests me, I yet to have my appetite wetted.
