Peruvian Khipu/Quipu

The Gordian knot of legend was so complex that no one could untie it. 
Alexander the Great met the challenge of this knot with the blade of his 
sword. This is a tempting solution today for releasing difficult knots but 
the best way to learn to untie knots is to learn to tie them.
