Forrests Giant Ball of String - What is he hinting to?
I find it hard to use the string theory as a measuring tool cause there isn't a formula in the story to get math solve

Think the ball of string is connected to the 'Teachers with Ropes'. 20 kids holding onto knots. There are 20 postmarks in the book

When he tried to explain to his mother the ball of string had disappeared she kept looking out the window looking for the postman.

Which supports the theory that the postmarks are important and not just added for effect by the designer. As to what they mean...

Some farmers, when they cut their hayfields, roll the cut hay up into cylindrical balls that can be 4 to 6 feet in diameter. The ball of hay, that could look like string from a distance, is secured by tying strands of different colored twine around the circumference. In the winter they feed the hay to their cattle so the balls of hay gradually disappear.
(Do I really have to say IMO all the time?)

Farmers in general seem to have balls of string. Or twine. Whatever you want to call it. We have the world's largest ball of twine in MN! (boring, if you ask me. Nothing to see there, move right along).

Ha ha ha! I remember the string story, and at the point of the search I am at, the string makes a lot of sense. He put a lot of work into his special place! He was referring to adding a little at a time to something else! LOL Look up the Fenn Monument!
