This is a very complicated move pioneered by the great but enigmatic Vavrinec Czukay. At the 1965 World Championship he unveiled his masterpiece, the Czukay Manipulation. The details are too involved to go into here. Basically, all sorts of things are done to a chosen and specified line, including recolouring, reflecting, changing all sorts of coefficients, but in such a way that the line emerges from the move unchanged. The result is a move to an otherwise unreachable station.

(The term 'Czukay Manipulation' is generally used to describe any sufficiently elaborate series of game actions that bear a resemblance to the original – the move itself has never been precisely repeated, even outside of tournament play, since 1965.)
