This is an amazing insight. Can we apply it to our skulls as well? filtering out damaging modes of shock is a huge innovation in material strenght and can be applyed even to bridges where vibration is the issue.
It may even turn out to be simple to apply as well. The spiral shape is uniform and fiber size will be the important variable.
This idea applied successfully to construction can give us vastly lighter construction modes and even hugely cheaper. We still have to figure out how, but i simply do not think it will be too hard. We have the correct hint.
