Abstract: Let $X$ be a homogeneous, decomposable continuum that is not aposyndetic. The Aposyndetic Decomposition Theorem yields a cell-like decomposition of $X$ into homogeneous continua with quotient space $Y$ being an aposyndetic, homogeneous continuum.

Assume the dimension of $X$ is greater than one. About 20 years ago the author asked the following questions:

Can this aposyndetic decomposition raise dimension? Can it lower dimension? We answer these questions by proving the following theorem.

Theorem. The dimension of the quotient space $Y$ is one.
