Kairos doesn't understand probability.

To have a whichever advantage in searching adjacent points it is necessary that at least one of the points involved in the search are out of the flat landscape. But the probability that this does really occur is put to 0 by the condition |S|^|V|>>v*w; in fact itís a >> involving thousands and more magnitude orders between the cardinalities of the two sets.


No matter how much bigger ">>" means, it is not the equivalent of saying that an event has zero support.  So no, nothing is "put to 0".

In fact, as Kairos' focus has explicitly stated, he pictures plateaus of "adjacent or linked points" which can not have zero support, AFAIK.
