In this paper we give a complete and improved proof of the Theorem on the union of two -cells. First time it was proved by the author in the form of reduction to the earlier
author's technique. Then the same reduction by the same method was
carried out by Kirby. The proof presented here gives a more clear
reduction. We also present here the exposition of this technique
in application to the given task. Besides, we use a modification
of the method, connected with cyclic ramified coverings, that
allows us to bypass referring to the engulfing lemma as well as to
other multidimensional results, and so the theorem is proved also
for spaces of any dimension. Thus, our exposition is complete and
does not require references to other works for the needed technique.
