Strength in numbers – many strands going in the same direction, woven in a double helix like DNA, with two linear strands running opposite each other, twisted together in anti-parallel – there must be a metaphor here for our lives connected together by the spinning wheel of God’s majesty.
That was one thought I had. And it was good fun.

“Two are better than one because they have a more satisfying return for their labor; for if either of them falls, the one will lift up his companion. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and does not have another to lift him up. Again, if two lie down together, then they keep warm; but how can one be warm alone? And though one can overpower him who is alone, two can resist him. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.”
