  • Interesting fact: It is recorded that the Babylonians were making soap around 2800 B.C. and that it was known to the Phoenicians around 600 B.C. These early references to soap and soap making were for the use of soap in the cleaning of textile fibers such as wool and cotton in preparation for weaving into cloth.
    • Weaving (Far) An incessant motion of a horse's head, neck, and body, from side to side, fancied to resemble the motion of a hand weaver in throwing the shuttle.
    • Weaving The act of one who, or that which, weaves; the act or art of forming cloth in a loom by the union or intertexture of threads.

Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
    • n weaving The act of one who or that which weaves; specifically, the act or art of producing cloth or other textile fabrics by means of a loom from the combination of threads or filaments. In weaving all kinds of fabrics, whether plain or figured, one system of threads, called the woof or weft, is made to pass alternately under and over another system of threads, called the warp, web, or chain. The essential operations are the successive raisins of certain threads of the warp and the depression of others, so as to form a shed for the passage of the weft-yarn, which is then beaten up by means of a lathe or batten. Weaving is performed by the hand in what are called hand-looms, or by steam-power in what are called power-looms, but the general arrangements for both are to a certain extent the same. (See loom.) Weaving, in the most general sense of the term, comprehends not only the manufacture of those textile fabrics which are prepared in the loom, but also that of network, lacework, etc. See cut under shuttle.
    • n weaving In the manège, the action of a horse that weaves, or moves the body from side to side.

Chambers's Twentieth Century Dictionary
    • Weaving the act or art of forming a web or cloth by the intersecting of two distinct sets of fibres, threads, or yarns—those passing longitudinally from end to end of the web forming the warp, those crossing and intersecting the warp at right angles forming the weft

Labors without rest
Every happy cornstalk,
Weaving at its breast
Such a cozy cradle
For the coming guest.

And at the well-head launch it free,
That so the brook may float it down,

Save the sound of weaving
Wee, soft things:
Everywhere a mother
Weaves and sings.

In science:

Intuitively, the factors of the Planck length in (4.7) and (4.10) force each loop in the weave to contribute a Planck unit to the eigenvalue of the two geometrical observables.
Overview and Outlook
As we noted already, a given 3-geometry can lead to distinct weave states; our construction only serves to make the existence of such states explicit.
Overview and Outlook
Thus, it is easy to obtain a 2-parameter family of weave states, parametrized by r and a.
Overview and Outlook
Let me conclude the discussion on weaves with two remarks.
Overview and Outlook
First, it is not difficult to extend the above construction to obtain weave states for curved metrics gab which are slowly varying with respect to a flat metric hab .
Overview and Outlook
See, also, Zegwaard (1993, 1994) for the weave corresponding to the Schwarzschild black-hole.) The second remark is that since the weaves are eigenbras of the operators that capture the 3-geometry, they do not approximate 4geometries.
Overview and Outlook
To obtain a state that can approximate Minkowski space-time, for example, one has to consider a loop state that resembles a “coherent state” peaked at the weave ∆a .
Overview and Outlook
The evolution from metrics to connections to loops to weaves and knots represents progress along these lines.

Resolution of singularities of an idealistic filtration in dimension 3 after Benito-Villamayor
We will illustrate this issue in the simplest case in which it occurs, which are the weave states . A weave is a kinematical state of loop quantum gravity, designed to match a given slowly varying classical spatial metric qab .
Disordered locality in loop quantum gravity states
For simplicity we discuss weaves for the spatial manifold Σ = T 3, the three torus, with standard flat metric, of volume R3, with R ≫ lPl .
Disordered locality in loop quantum gravity states
We can then weaken the weave condition (1) to a condition on a general candidate for a ground state |W i, which relates the expectation value of geometric observables to the classical geometry.
Disordered locality in loop quantum gravity states
This volume condition can be satisfied by building the weave state on a regular lattice, or on a triangulation of space, where the lattice spacing is on the order of the Planck length.
Disordered locality in loop quantum gravity states
Definition 1. A weave state for a slowly varying metric qab is a local weave state if all of the edges in the spinnetworks with non-zero amplitude in the state connect two nodes whose metric distance measured with qab is on the order of the Planck length.
