Trying to get my head some mathematical and mechanical concepts to do with Torque,Twist,Torsion, and Writhe.
A superhelix is simply a helix winding around another helix. First you see the result of increasing the radius, then varying the rate of twist. This causes some surprising topologically complicated knotting.
Next is shown the path of a particle rotated in 4D. By varying the ratio of the 2 components of this double rotation ( en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SO(4) ) different torus knots, unknots and links are formed.
Finally, the progression is shown from line to helix to superhelix to 'super-superhelix', a progression that could obviously be carried on recursively.
