NAUTILE HELP FOR THE DUMB ABOUT NUMBERING THE PINS AND
POSITIONING THE PINS
This will help those who use IsoGridTracer and RKnot
Builder, or make their Regular
Knots by themselves without using a brainless recipe.
IMAGINE INSTEAD OF NUMBER THAT COLOURS ARE WHAT COUNT then
* ****** ****** ****** ****** *****
YOU MAY BEGIN YOUR PIN STEPPING ON ANY COLOUR
YOU CHOSE AND IT WILL
NOT CHANGE THE KNOT MADE, IT IS JUST THE SAME WITH NUMBERING
AND BEGINNING ON ANY DIGIT/NUMBER YOU WANT IT IS JUST A
QUESTION OF CONVENTION THAT ANY HUMAN BRAIN CAN USE FROM
A VERY EARLY AGE WITHOUT NEEDING A UNUSUALLY BRIGHT MIND!
Now let us see about how to position the PINS on the TWO BIGHTs RIMs
the 2 different frames of reference = vertical and horizontal.
In both computers programs it is the Schaake horizontal mandrel that is
side ( the starting rim for HP-1) and one BIGHTs RIM on theRIGHT side
( arrival of each ODD numbered Half-Period and departure of EVEN
It is quite easy to see that the DETERMINING FACTOR is the PARITY of
the number LEADs
number == DO NOT BREAK THE EVENNESS and KEEP THE PINS ALIGNED
BETWEEN THE TWO BIGHT RIMS

ANOTHER TIP JUST RECEIVED ABOUT SOMETHING SHOWING WHAT IS
IMO A STAGGERING
IGNORANCE AND A VERY POISONING ( for
looking for knowledge) TO THE " I
WANT TO LEARN" CANDIDATES
[open quote] It looks
like a Turks Head...... So what if
it doesn't follow somebodies rules? It's still a a Turks Head.[end
this is quite bad phenetics
once again !
Most probably that person seeing the point of the beak of a platypus
breaking surface will state
"it looks like a duck so it is a duck and blast the classification
rules made by people really knowing how to make them !
Does the person realise how dumb and not amusing at all that
statement is ?
doubt it, if only because I feel reading in those words ( hope they
were given exactly) a certain pride in being so ...basic.
If " it does not follow rules" that are exclusively and formally
THK then is
is not a THK. Simple.
That person, it seems to me, has not yet realised
that the rules comes not from the whimsical choice of some person(s)
but from the structure of the knot itself and from the coherent,
logical observation and
study of said knots.
We are being offered by that person only personal whims, delusions and
opinions coming from the 'brain's guts' and WE
ARE NOT OFFERED ANY
ARGUMENT, WE JUST GET THE EXPRESSION OF A PERSONAL POSTURE UNSUPPORTED BY ARGUMENTS
COMING FROM THE HIGHER BRAIN STRUCTURES.
What if I decide to say :
"this look like a shoes box so it is a shoes box and not a
Will that change the machine parts container into a shoes box ?
if I say " this looks like the full moon so it is a full moon", will
that make the whitish globe at the tip of the street
Earth satellite ?
opinions does not change the external reality, only the internal one !
Schaake and Turner's works are based
on observation, sound
logic, mathematics and
clearly circumscribe, describe, demonstrate what a THK is. Read The
Braider and Regular Knots.
My own writings (before meeting them) are based on mathematics, not
personal whims. THK mathematics Part 1 THK mathematics Part 2 THK are not braids THK
or not THK ( The "table" should be
rewritten to take on account Schaake and
Turner's works )
If some knot does not follow
the rules based, not on personal opinions like in this
instance but on hard "reasoning", then it
is not a THK.
I know that "steady and sound reasoning" may happen to be outside the
possibilities of some
that is quite OK with me and no skin off my nose but they
should ethically refrain from "poisoning" the minds of other persons
who are at risk if they believe such sources or when they are stating
their opinion they should flag it with "my opinion based on
personal whims and not hard fact".
Look, study and analyse with a sharp, open,
what it said to you.
accept " blunt affirmation of opinion or creed that are not backed with
full reasoning and factual argumentation.
Do not accept "opinion"
as "fact, ever !
THK = single-strand knot (not structurally a braid, but some
like to use the 'label' braid)
following a distinctive cordage route obeying equations leading to the
GCD rule with a particular
O1-U1 ( U1 - O1)
crossings. ( see my articles on the Mathematics
of THK written well before I ever set an eye on Schaake and Turner's
work and see Regular Knots and The Braider by Schaake and Turner rather
than risk your knottyer competence with "opinions", keep only
facts and rejected the deluded affirmation of creed.
Read, study and makes your own judgement about the
soundness of the arguments of all parties while discarding ALL
what is simply "opinions" ( 'brain's farts') more or less brilliantly
or forcefully asserted!
HELP FOR THE DUMB ON " MODULARITY " IN SOME
OF THE COLUMN CODED VARIETY SUCH AS
GAUCHO , HEADHUNTER, FAN KNOTS
Hopefully, with a bare minimal of observation and attention you will
easily realise the
relations existing between those knots.
My ambition is to help you built some C.R.A.P detectors for
you to use when reading posts on some forum.
