- Knotting Geometry
is an evolving shape, a mechanical process.
is a highly interconnected System of environments, processes solving for
their own global minimum and competing with differing mechanical leverage
wrt each other, and over time.
regions compete for stress reduction and flexibility.
is the physical shifting of fibrous muscle tissue wrt other muscles and the
firm tendons and bony support structures.
fibrous muscles slide through each other, and along each other.
at key locations causes mechanical leverage to pressure the system toward

process is the shape. the shape
is, ideally, at time zero, two
inter-twined ten by ten matrices.
ten by ten is the link of fingers to toes along one side of the body.
the linkage passes through the torso it interacts with each other like
helixical worm gears.
clock like mechanism is based very simple string game principals with a few
cradle enhanced rules allow for solid and firm components as well as the
string rules when building a knot.
the very simple example of the spine alone, although this is only possible
a crane with a flexible tower:
tower is constructed by piling tower modules upon each other with a pivotal
link both above and below,
also has four columns of cording pulling down on each of the corners so that
the tower can remain erect.
imagine that these control cords are far more complex because they are
actually a series of cords that entered and exited the primary cord
structures at each disk.
would allow you to pull a little harder up near the top on the left, relax a
bit on the right and tip the tower to the right only on the towers top and
still stand erect.
back to the entire torso; the super support for the tower
an umbrella hub structure, only doubled above and below you and enclosing
you like a cage,
process is designed to support an upright cylinder-like structure by apply
counter-balanced pulling forces evenly across the outer perimeter of the net
to gain flexibility.
outer net does not support the weight of the structure, but exercises
considerable control over the system with great mechanical leverage.
it stress the process and is also the key to resolve and unwind the process.
Overview / Primary Semi-Systems
/ Secondary semi-systems
semi-system interaction: Phase shifting occurs when two regions each
flexible three dimensional, intersects directly and can when
combined result in two regions stripped of some flexibility but each
in a complimentary physical path.
semi-system interaction / General
predetermined through elimination of feasible solutions.
math is simple because it is ones complement logic.
process explodes in complexity due to the super highly interconnected fibers
of the system.
obeys conservation of energy laws as a mechanical process.
process is discontinuous, jerky and the counter-part sub-systems
increasingly slide out of phase with each other.
continues with increasing complexity which drastically reduce the physical
options at the local levels,
the remaining options will store increasingly higher levels of energy before
reaching their thresh-hold limits especially phase shifting.
the effects of progression are predictable only for an individual
downwardly, as the process is reversed it flows itself out naturally and
predictably with great generalizations
process increasingly finds the mandatory solving of each local minimum
only provides system degradation and slow collapse.
events can easily redirect the continuation of the process, but without
deliberate action the process is inevitable.
