Good, then my drawing will have to be corrected to be topless (and actually bottomless as well).

Thank you for all your input on the Flat Hand!
I guess I am still learning how to explain these symbols in English.
Don't let my word-explanations in English confuse you...English is
not the point..
When I said extended fingers, I was referring to symbols that have a
square for a base. Remember how Paul thought that all squares were
the same? We have plain squares with only thumbs, and then we have
squares that have extended fingers, like the Index finger handshape...
but the term "extended fingers" only applies to squares....
But a Flat Hand is not a square! it is a totally different category
of symbol...of course all fingers are extended in a Flat Hand but we
don't have to explain that, since that is what a Flat Hand is!
And spreading those fingers in the 5 hand, or writing the Spock
Handshape, or whatever, will be coming in Lesson 2...Right now we are
just writig the Flat Hand...
Here is how we write the Flat Hand now:
