[cryptography] Satoshi Nakamoto's 2015 unbreakable signature algorith

Isn't a problem with this that the private key can only be used to sign one message as otherwise more intermediate values for different bit patterns are revealed--and then I can forge all the downstream ones. In the extreme case, if I have two messages where the digest differs in the first bit, I have A, B and C.  That also means that technically only B or C are really "private" as A and (B or C) are pushed as part of the signature.

Can we at least post some links?

https://www.docdroid.net/mR3fUNS/paper.pdf.html

is apparently where 1st 2 pages are.
