Posted:Hi guys-
I'm writing a paper for a folklore class about poi and I need a section on the jargon. I've been trying to figure out how to define a weave and haven't really come up with anything. I can talk about how there are different levels, but I haven't figured out how to explain the basic concept of them. Any one have ideas?

Posted:Well, there's been a discussion on it, I don't think we ever came to a conclusion. We do have some other things we did settle on on this page http://wikipoidia.com/index.php?title=Main_Page
br>Hoe that helps for something, but let me see if I can get that discussion onto here. It's not all relevant, but I don't feel like filtering it laugh3

Lets all start with a simple definition.
Everyone write down what a weave is!

Andrew Exuro Piechocki Any motion from one plane to a parallel plane that exists on the other side of some body part and involves at least one degree of twisting and untwisting throughout the fulll cycle.

David Whisennant A crossing and uncrossing of points of rotation that results in symmetry between two paralell planes.

Andrew Exuro Piechocki what if its atomic?

Charlie Lyons The Atomic weave is a fusion of a three beat weave and split time opposites and a portal.

Vinny Mauro I thought it was a mix of poi and quantum mechanics?

Vinny Mauro Are you sure it's not in some physics textbook? I could swear it was in somewhere in a book on quantum neutrino fields...

Charlie Lyons Lol as far as I know!! Its just a poi move!! It looks seriously complicated but is totally doable.

Vinny Mauro Trust me I've known both introverted and extroverted atomics weave 5 and 3bt for a very long time lol. I actually got 5bt first, but I was a very determined little man only a couple weeks in xD I'm pretty sure I destroyed my face learning the introverted one.

Charlie Lyons In all Honesty, I'm a novice and havent gotten that far myself. I just nailed the reverse three beat weave. But that was the definition I got. But your probably right!! I'm still learning but hopefully will be as good very soon!!

Vinny Mauro There are many things that don't really gave any prerequisites to learn other than decent control of your planes, so I suggest starting those whenever you want smile Such as isolations, a concept of its own, takes a long time to get good so start when you can wink Along with flowers as well, and that will actually help you learn many other things if you learn to do them correctly grin

OK. i think the focus here is a concise and simple definition of a theory, not a move. As far as i'm concerned, weave is a sort of class. lets assume that a wiki would explain things in the sort of algebraic notation Drex was working on, ex...cept maybe on a broader scale. IE define the basic constants before modifying the equation with variables, just in a linguistic sense instead of with equations. So in case of the atomic weave. Atomic weave is described as a weave (known constant) modified by the variables of timing and plane type. Or some such combination. In a wiki lay out this would allow for clear connections between concepts and make the information easily linkable. So the weave article might be a basic definition and then include terms with modifications to the primary theory. Giving the reader to approach the depth of their research subjectively to their own abilities.See More

Good call David, A weave is certainly a move "class" if you will, into which every weave should be able to fit. I feel that we should consider ourselves all poi-fessors of sorts whom are writing a textbook on poi. In the definitions section..., what would a book on poi tell us a weave is? In the weave "chapter" what sub categories of weaves could/should be included?

A Weave is an extremely broad term, and therefore its actual definition would cover the constants that we see in all types of weaves.See More

Vinny Mauro Can weaves be called weaves if hands are same time with eachother? (more meaningful to more techy weaves)
November 17 at 2:48pm LikeUnlike
o
David Whisennant whelp. Like a butterfly weave? In my mind, as long as you are in a pattern that is symmetrical and self perpetuating, then yes. Hands same direction same time i GUESS is a weave, technically a two beat, but really just a single cross point. Not very interesting to say the least.

Vinny Mauro I'm talking more a triquetra "weave". One hand extending and one hand antispin.

David Whisennant In a weave? Ive never tried it. Do you have a video or something?

David Whisennant i mean what it comes down to, in my minds eye anyway, is a perpetuating pattern between two parallel planes. as long as the pattern is mirrored on both sides and feeds itself.

David Whisennant then its a weave.

David Whisennant IE 1.5 beat weaves venture into strange timings and directions.

yes that would be a weave vinny, you are twisting and untwisting while crossing a plane presented by the body. same thing with 1.5s.

A weave doesnt necessarily create a mirror image of body motions though, for instance a two beat weave is st...ill a weave, but only one hand will do the crossing over/under.See More

Posted:ok from readin all that what i got is it is a weaving motion of the hands which also are a mirrored movement that create a symetrical pattern that is parallel with itself on both sides thanks to its simple fixed cross-point
