torus surface

I see two gaps on my torus.



My range was 1..64, so I changed it to 0..64. It fixed the surface but the problem with that is my sum doesn't equal zero.
[sin(2*Pi*x*(1/64))*(7/8+(5/*cos(2*Pi*y*(1/64)))+cos(2*Pi*x*(1/64))*(7/8+(5/*cos(2*Pi*y*(1/64)))+(5/*sin(2*Pi*y*(1/64))]


sum 1..64=0
sum 0..64=115/2
sum -64..64=227/2

I consistently find that these types of functions will always equal zero from 1..n. When I go into hyperspheres it continues to equal 0. Sometimes one of the two other options will equal zero, but 1..n always seems to work.

So did I break topology in anyway or do they not consider this sort of thing important?

I've looked at this over and over again but still can't decide what you are doing! What do the different colors indicate? What does "[sin(2*Pi*x*(1/64))*(7/8+(5/*cos(2*Pi*y*(1/64)))+cos(2*Pi*x*(1/64))*(7/8+(5/*cos(2*Pi*y*(1/64)))+(5/*sin(2*Pi*y*(1/64))]" mean? Where did you get that?
