The 10.136 knot. Fitting knot if anything to celebrate my actual position, as I am approaching the Amazon river estuary in this 52 week Knot Geometry journey along the equator line.
10.136. If one count all the many tributaries that contribute to this mythical river, we may come close to that number. I used an Amazon-like color scheme for this illustration: from black coffee to cappuccino white and all the variations in between.
Coincidentally, 10.136 is also the number of a poem found in the ancient Sanskrit, Rig Veda. As I am not indifferent to the news around us, I’ll dedicate to you all this uplifting quote: “Following the wind’s swift course, go where the gods have gone before and behold our natural bodies.”
Knot geometry project, month of February, 1,650 knots west of Null.
What better place than the middle of the ocean to dream of the 4th dimension. A hologram of Queen Isabella jewelry left by conquistadors on their way west? Actually, the real 4D knot (lower left) is a construct by mathematician Rob Kusner requiring a 4 dimensional approach to geometry. 50 components, 600 beads, 21,600 polygons went into this model.
