My father used to say that a if a mathematical proof was true it would be beautiful. He was a topologist. Topologists LOVE knots and I think their knots are beautiful. They knot spheres for heaven’s sake! They do need the fourth dimension, 4-space, to do it however. One way topologists depict knots is by slicing them like a loaf of bread and laying out the slices to show the movement through the ‘loaf’ or knot. It is a wonderfully mind bending and engaging visual challenge, one I have only just begun to approach.
