 Loops Posted on Sat Nov 24, 2018 8:34 am Link to Post: loop definition: a straight 2 in 1 chain of 3 rings or more where the first and the last rings are connected to each other. rules: hard torus. unbending, not stretchy, not like a rope or knot. loops can be balanced like this: or loops can be unbalanced like this: when a loop is unbalanced, it is naturally right handed or left handed. loops can be twisted in intervals of .5 turns. so, for example, when there are 5 rings in a loop, there is no way to have whole number turns. the turns must be (.5, 1.5, 2.5, or 3.5). here is an example of a 5 ring loop with .5 turn: mathematically, the number of turns must be lower than the number of rings. this is a universal limit in 3 dimensions. any questions? should i make this into an article?http://www.joshuadiliberto.com

I would say yes, make this into an article. Articles about weave theory are important, and there are none on m.a.i.l. that cover this.
