So...thinking about old symbols, like the eternal knot.

I'm working alone.

Later: so...basic explanation: okay, so it's four circles and a square (the equations of circles and lines, etc.)

more detailed: more math. also, maybe how the distance between the circles affects the knot...yeah.

may 22: go into the basic mathematical definition of a knot. Is the eternal knot technically a mathematical knot (since it's not all circles? Maybe find another image with curves.) Also...history behind the knot maybe. If I do find another picture of the knot, talk about links? (this is knot theory...http://www.oglethorpe.edu/faculty/~j_nardo/knots/intro.htm makes it fairly simple. ish. maybe some basic stuff about this in the more mathematical explanation.)

Then, keep going with the stuff that Diana said? ( it'd be super cool if I could make an animation showing the distance between the lines increasing and decreasing.)

Okay...so actually, the picture I have is the 8-18 knot (AKA a Carrick mat. that's decorative in knot tying, but the 8-18 is knot theory. Ha!) So...stuff about knot theory, it looks like, and who discovered it, when, etc. and then, keep going with the whole distance thing if that works out!
