knots – r d laing …

The patterns delineated here have not yet been classified by a Linnaeus of human bondage.

They are all, perhaps, strangely, familiar.

In these pages I have confined myself to laying out

only some of those I actually have seen. Words that

come to mind to name them are: knots, tangles,

fankles, impasses, disjunctions, whirligogs, binds.

I could have remained closer to the ‘raw’

data in which these patterns appear. I could

have distilled them further towards an abstract

logico-mathematical calculus. I hope they are not so

schematized that one may not refer back to the

very specific experiences from which they derive;

yet that they are sufficiently independent of ‘content’, for

one to divine the final formal elegance in these

webs of maya.

Wonder, silence, gratitude
