hi



bit more theory to drop into the mix...





for years I have been doing a backward butterfly overhead tangle that comes out in forward butterfly. with no idea how i was doing it.



whilst messing around with mesh atoms ( see here for desciption of "mesh" state. ) I remeber ed taling a while ago about catchup loops, which is when you make one Poi spin faster than the other to make them tangle, rather than interfearing with thier planes.



so, I aplied this to an inside mesh atom.



as we all know when you hyperloop and aton it switches the planes by ninety degrees. so if you have a mesh atom, do a catch-up hyperloop on the outside, the planes flip and it unwinds on the inside, much like an airwrap.



for the front obsever a mesh aton looks like a butterfly (only at the front, looks like a weave from the side). when the planes are switched by 90 degrees then it looks as iff the butterfly has changed direction, feels like it too.



***update***



another thing ive found recently goes a long way to explaining butterfloops and 4 beat airwraps.



when doing a fully atomic clash airwrap when the planes swich inside the leading Poi can be made to imadatly re-wrap/tangle the other Poi. it looks and feels like its hooking over the other Poi and dragging it forward/back again. hence the name.



its the same thing when you do a 1st degree buttfly tangle, you can either make it retangle at the bottom or untangle, bepending on what you do with your hands.



whilst helping me understand more things this tangle raises some questions...



if its behaving like a 1st degree buttterfloop then can it be made as a second degree? normally this would involve some crossing of your arms, but in atom you change state when you cross one arm over the other...





hope peeps understand this



I will be around for clarifications tomorow.



big love,

I was trying it and...
I think you can maintein the Poi tangled toghether...
with butterfly(normal) HL you can go to the inside plane and come back on the outside plane both (maintaining or not the tangle) I think sch as for this atom you say....

or I'm wrong?

As i understand it, Mesh Atom is the one that doesn't tangle, the other one is the one that does Tangle, if you spin 1 Poi fast to make the atom tangle then i don't see how it's Mesh ????

Anyhoo, sounds like fun, i do my atomic tangles a little differently, i enter and exit the tangle normally, but keep the Poi in atomic planes whilst they are in the tangle.

cool stuff,

yes. to all.

accio. the butterfly tangle behaves like this, but im not really talking buterfly tangles here, im talking mesh atomic. Ive not really found how to maintain (i.e. buzzsaw tangle style winding-unwinding) an atomic tangle apart from really messing around with oli'ing.

Matt. Mesh descibes the interaction of the planes at the point of intersection, not if they actually tangle or not. there fore you can have a clash atom that dosnt tangle (called a crane) and a mesh atom that does (catch-up loop). Im not sure what you mean about entering normally but looping atomically, id love to see a video. maybe its like what i was saying about oli'ing with atomic planes?

blue. its a matter of plane controle, have them flat enough and you enter and exit the same direction, atomic enough and they should flip. Ive noticed if i bounce a butterfly tangle over my head and back coming out the same direction the planes become much more atomic anyway.

I think the swich happens naturally over the head with a backwards bf, but a forwards bf naturally comes out the same direction. this is because the point you should be tangling for a forwards atom to switch is behind you (pointing away behind you), wheres a backwards atom you want to tangle when the intersection is pointing away infront of you.

not so very clear.....

oh well.

I was trying it...and for me i s more confortable in backward...

Not such clean but I think that is atomic enought wink watch and answare...

Tom the feel that I have doing this move (is the same from two diffrent point of view) is exactly between eternal tangle buzzsaw and butterfly... manipulating plane as you can realize from that is quite simple to go into butterfly or into eternal reverse buzzsaw...



But see this:

and let me know if I'm wrong!

p.s.

I don't know what you mean for "oli'ing"...sorry...

yeah its a catchup, but i dont thing its changing directions because you bounce in then out again.

haha,

there's a brief clip of me doing an atomic tangle at the end of track 15 on the sphercular vision dvd wink filmed the last time i was at brJC.

That was the same year i managed to spin 2 Diabolo 'atomic' ie on crossed planes, it's pretty weird.

that you tube vid is a butterfly airwrap that moves into a sort of atomicish hyperloopy thing yeah smile
try to go straight into the move from an atom without pulling it from the bfly airwrap... then play with the timing and crane it and you may encounter what the boys are talking about here smile

at least someone understands.

for me its all about the phenomenon, you bash your Poi toegther in random patters untill you find something new, then you replicate it untill youve seen it enough times (for me thats a lot of ties) to understand whats going on with it.

anyway, ive updated the main post, have a look.

About airwrap I have to work on it...
About buttterfloop I'm not sure about terminology @_@ but as you know I really agree about the fact that you can maintain or not the tangle going inside (maintain or re-catch ...I have to think a bit about it)...

But sure that your work is a great begin for working on atomics HL wink

Thanx a lot!!

Ciao!
