Trefoil Knot

The simplest knot is the Trefoil knot.

From: http://mathworld.wolfram.com/TrefoilKnot.html

Lynnclaire's Trefoil knot has an addition loop.

(It is still a "Trefoil" knot with the added loop.)

This knot can be formed by 2 interesting helices.

(Not smooth at the 2 connecting points.)

The knot can involute around torus.

(3 loops around, twice going through the hole.)

Is this the first occurrence of a "living" system?

The knot can flex "open" and "closed".

The "open" position maps onto a Tetrahedron.

It can also map to a minimum surface: Enneper Surface.

(From: http://mathworld.wolfram.com)

We can put a sphere around this surface and trim....
