Quipucamayoc

Quipucamayoc plays his strings.
Four-brane quipu, quantum dots.
Emergent, complex tapestry
Sound and color,
Fermion knots.

Atomic jig at boson’s push
Molecules from atom dance.
Knotted cosmic symmetry,
Photon sway,
Quantum chance.

Quipu pattern mystery,
Entangled meaning, knots as quill,
Quipucamayoc, unperturbed
Emerges wonder,
Vibrates still.

Quantum Quipu

If strings can information hold,

With beads on wire

Or knots on string.

Might abacus and quipu mold

Worlds of meaning?

Dreams unfold?

If strings can information bear,

In subatomic

Quantum realms.

Might quarks and other discrete fare

Be one-dimension

Knowledge dare?

Quipu were a knotted-string knowledge management system the Inca used to conveniently store data. For background see here: https://www.linkedin.com/posts/chuckmetz_reading-the-strings-and-knots-that-keep-the-activity-6887838438129762304-bfiJ
