quick 10 points

Best Answer:

Guru: It does, somewhat. Which is why rope ends are either (traditionally) whipped with twine, or (synthetic rope) fused together or capped with heat-shrink tube.

Other answer:

A rope is made of many strands, which have been pulled so the fibres interlock, and twisted in the opposite direction to the main bundle's twist. This two opposing twists pull the whole thing together.
