|I drew this toroidal pattern using a pencil compass on paper. The lines you see at the circles' centers is where the compass dug into the paper. Pardon the mathematical imperfections, as this was done freehand.|
|I imported the drawing into Paint and airbrushed out the compass scratches. I can see toroids all over this drawing, but you may only be seeing the circles.|
|This torus and its poles was used to illustrate "the great square within the torus." Same view as the blue lined cutaway above.|
|The darkest blue circles represent my clumsy eyeball method of illustrating how the torus is dividing fractally. Each torus cross section can divide into two more. |
I wish I had a program that would draw these things more accurately. Any volunteers?
Usually when I've thought about multiply-linked tori, they appear to nest at a single center pole, like Russian dolls. But these new drawings show how the tori can divide fractally along different lines.
