This pertains to another thread created a few days ago: ATS Link: Common Sense Renewed (Georgia Guidestones "Manual")

I noticed the mysterious figure R.C. Christian used this design or banner under his name and it looked like a knot of some type. Is there anyone here that can identify it or better yet name the type of knot it is(if that's what it is to begin with).


I posted a picture that shows a similar knot: middle row, right column. But I'm not sold it's the same knot or what the name of this knot is called.



This subject has been the center of my free time for the past few days, so I would be very happy if I found this to mean something more significant.
Thank you in advance, AB

I think that's called a spainish bowline knot. The curlies do kind of look like a knot. Or it could be just some curlies, lol. Also, from what I've gathered Robert Christian is an alias. Some people think it's for the initials RC... Rosicrucian


Are you thinking there's some kind of symbolism in this?

EDTA: Siimlar but maybe not an exact match when compared side by side...

It looks like a bowline to me, but just a bowline, not a spanish bowline.

But I was not a boatswains mate in the navy, so I am not a knot specialist.

I don't know yet, but if I can identify the knot correctly then read the rest of the book he wrote, I might find a 'tie-in' some where. Sorry, bad pun.

Spanish bowline or bowline(thanks butcherguy) it's a good starting point.
I'll post something if I can get a perfect match.

Yeah, i think you're right. Doesn't have the doubled tag ends coming back down like the spainish bowline.

That would be cool. I love studying symbolism.

Gonna read the thread you linked. I've read about the guidestones many times, but i need to refresh my brain wrinkles a bit.

well I think the loops under his sig kinda look like a bowline knot... If you see symbolism in that the bowline knot is considered a rescue knot. It can be tied one handed.

the guide stones a rescue plan? the sig a rescue knot?

Best reference for knots : Ashleys Book of knots covers pretty much every knot there is ..

A rescue knot, that's very interesting I'm going to look it up now.

So far the bowline is the best lead I've got on this weird theory. After speaking to the Rosicrucion Chapter today symbolism seemed appropriate given the very DeVinchi-esque approach they seem to adhere to. Thank you.

I'll look there also.


Add: Often called The King of Knots and was used in ancient Egypt.

Underlining one's signature with a baroque vector flourish was a common style in bygone years.

As a chandler, sailor and professional knot tyer, I can confidently assure you this isn't a hitch, bend or knot.

I'm sorry to spoil your theory but the design is purely ornamental and bears no relationship to decorative ropework.

Siberian hitch.

A kind of slipped hitch you can tie and untie with mitts on.

Your not spoiling any theory because there isn't one yet and I am too stubborn to listen anyway.
Haven't made up my mind on this and will keep searching for information until I do, I call it awareness, even if it is insignificant in the end.

Do you know anything about graphology?
I don't need to start a thread for that, but it's on my list next also.
