the 3,10 Torus Knot in Rotation (animation, 936K)
This illustration shows:
- How the standard "Ring" form of the 3,10 torus knot can
be transformed to fit on the surface of a dimpled-sphere torus.
- How the 3,10 torus knot is defined by a "touch-pad magic
whose diagonals, central row, and column add to 15).
- How the dimpled sphere form of the 3,10 torus knot defines 6
hand-shaped regions wound around a (6-thumb) tetrahelical central
- How the central column of the dimpled-sphere form of the 3,10
torus knot is composed of and defined by a column of 99-tetrahedra.
- How each hand is defined by a central colunn (wound on the
and extended over the palm and 4-fingers) of a "jubilee" of 49-tetrahedra;
- How the 99-tetrahedra tetrahedral column consists of 3-ribbons
of 3x22=66 triangular faces, with one triangular face for each of
sets of 22-letters of a string of 3-Hebrew alphabets.
