Hmm, here from "untied, in knots", it is that tying the knot and untying the knot do not start the same ways, with all knots setting from the load line or knot tie line. This is with knots starting with loops.
The not and un-, here, the un- is already defined, beyond that "double negatives" cancel that it's _what_ they cancel, these are obviously such basic facts of the very meaning of things. Then, with asking politely in the negative, really it demands asking back what of it.
