Pacific Ring Weave


(.) #44

Giant waves on endless ocean
Rolling on without a motion
They curl into circle of surf
And break into countless pieces
At the shores of Reality.

Ego sail ship rides on the storm
Mast and sails are equally thorn
The anchor is out on an endless twine
It never scrapes the Rock Bottom Line.

No use hiding in captain’s lounge
No use staring maps and compass
No use, yelling at the sailors:
“The Final Tidal Weave is upon us!”

Stormy weather, much commotion.
No escape from Planet Ocean.

why don’t you like the holes in the pattern? are you trying to disturb the indigenous seafloor mud by pumping it the surface?

I do not mind the holes in the pattern. There is a way to do the weaving without the holes,
but I just do not see it yet. The pattern with the holes are easy. I can do that pattern.
So, I just continue with the easy stuff. Nobody else is doing ring weaving anyways.

I would rather not disturb the indigenous sea floor mud,
and I would rather not pump it to surface.

besides being classified "mining"and “potentially altering” 1 trillion trillionth of the habitat needed for for successful sea slug reproduction… i don’t think it would matter anyway -too many holes in even a “tight” weave. As an floating surface type breakwater the more “holes” the better. friction related. hate to be so negative with my first post here…but that is what i remember reading somewhere long ago. Supposedly a net 1 1/2 times the wavelength of a wave will take out 99.9% of that waves energy. S 3750 ft for a 20 foot swell.320 acres. you might need all the holes you can get.

That is exactly why I am not after the solid pattern, and I would like to work with
the pattern with the holes in it.
I suspect, wave breaking could be done, not just with a vertical surface but with a horisontal
surface too. The idea would be to gradually break the waves, and a horizontal surface
with holes in it might work the best.

It would be the same idea as a parachute opens.
A parachute opens gradually, to allow slower deceleration of the skydiver.
One idea would be multiple layers of horizontal sheets under water, and
the lower layers get bigger and bigger to slice the waves. And there would be
some space between the sheets.
But first I have to weave. And I think you are right, the holes are good.

May be a quick drawing:

I will draw a better picture later. It is getting late here.

Good luck. I really DO wish you well and I sincerely hope your attempted solution works for you.

Thank you very much.

If all else fails you can open a shoe business.

I like the shoe business. It is useful. More than just talk, go do the walk.
