Today I will finally present the main results justifying the definition of an imploid-valued flow, namely that:

1. any (local) flow on a rooted 3-valent map equipped with the “topological” orientation of a linear lambda term necessarily satisfies the “global flow” condition; and conversely, that

2. any rooted 3-valent map equipped with a non-topological orientation admits a flow violating the global flow condition.

I will also sketch a theory of rewriting for flows that gives another way of understanding (1), as a consequence of a “topological completeness” theorem in the style of classical combinatory completeness results for lambda calculus.
