boxes and atoms, breaking it down (again)
ok, you got the first bit right have one poi wall plane and one side plane. The object of the game is to move the poi around and still keep them in thier seperate planes. no poi should ever change its plane to meet the other, not like never, but for this game never.
The hard thing is that as you turn with say a weave the plane wich was side plane becomes wall when you turn your body 90 degrees.
but we will come to mecanics in a bit .
timimgs and directions.
say your left poi is at your side spinning forwards, and the right poi is infront of you wallplane and spinning anticlock. in paralell time from your point of view you get a butterfly. however, if you were to change the plane of just one poi they would now be spinning same direction rather than butterfly. I wish i had a diagram for this. but try it.
this means that to go to atom weave, your "open" position (hand uncrossed in front of you) should be in split time butterfly, so that when you change the plane by crossing your hands your now in follow time weave.
the way this actually works is that at any one time one hand is going wall and the other side plane. so weave:
Start: split time forwards butterfly atom left hand wall plane right hand side plane. "open" position.
take right hand over left, this is easier if you cross further up your left arm.
as in the normal weave the right hand circles downwards under the left armpit. the left poi however is wall plane and you have to concentrate hard to make it do a nice wall plane circle around the side plane poi.
so with the right poi swing ing under your left arm "side plane" amd the left poi coming over the right "wall plane" turn you body 90 degrees to the right.
now the left poi, which was wall plane is now !side plane! and goes over your right shoulder and then circles down as with the other side as the right poi does a nice wall plane circle.
remeber, the planes dont change, only the poisions relative to your body.
theres loads more to this stuff, but thats gonna have to wait for another day.
even though i wrote that artical more than a year ago, im only now getting to turn thease things, as they are such a concious effort to break what you know from years of doing the weave.
de plane de plane!
