File:Principia Discordia page00043 mandala (Brunnian link).svg
English: A rendering of the "mandala" design (or knot-theoretic link) found on page 00043 of Principia Discordia. This is made of five interlaced irregular nonagons, fitted within an overall pentagon. No two nonagons are directly interlinked, but any three adjacent nonagons (for example, yellow, green and blue) are in a Borromean rings configuration.
For a presumably topologically-equivalent structure (which may be easier to understand visually), see Image:Five-interlaced-pentagons.svg . For other examples of linked structures which contain multiple Borromean rings configurations, see Image:Borromean-cross.png and Image:Borromean-chainmail-tile.svg .
The text on page 00043 of Principia Discordia reads: "MANDALA: No two elements interlock, but all five do interlock".

(Additionally, the original material in the Principia Discordia was also declared to be Kopylefted or public domain -- "All rites reversed" etc.).|
