In the previous chapter, we saw how to create lines which Illustrator calls open paths because they have endpoints, points at the end of the lines, points that stop. You know, they're out there, they're single points. Maybe they find another point, maybe they don't. They're not quite ready to settle down. In this chapter we see shapes which Illustrator calls closed paths because they don't have endpoints. It's not closed in the sense of shut down, it's just that they aren't accepting new points. The points are married really except that they're binogamous, every point is joined to two other points so the shape continues forever and ever. Maybe we should be more like that, you're thinking. Maybe we should be binogamous.
What the heck are you talking about? These are points in a shape, they're not people. Binogamous? That's not even a word. This is just an analogy, you know like pretend. All of a sudden we're all going to be married to two people, that's crazy. One. One people that's a lot of people to be married to. Here let me show you.
