If the earth was just a gigantic ball of one kind of stuff, with a
of heavy-ended tails coming out of it that were made out of the
same stuff, then it would be very apparent that the number of
one heavy ended tail turned around was usually ballanced out by
number of times
it turned in the opposite direction afterwards, or
the number of times another tail turned in sympathetic
But with animals, plants and other stuff running around a planet,
is not as clear that they are all tied together in a resonant dance.
But they probably are. And regardless of how complex the dance
gets it is probably significant if you always break even, or if you
consistently end up having turned around to your right 11 times
day. Whatever it would be cool to measure this.
So this app tells you how many times and in what direction you
turned around each day.
Oh also, most plants are twisted in a counter clockwise direction
looking up because I am living in the northern hemisphere and
follow the sun which appears in the south and so kind of twists the
plants in a counter clockwise direction.
||Is the number widgetted on a scale that goes from Archimede's statue to Whirling Dervish?
||//in what direction you have turned around each
||But relative to what? A tree turns zero times per day
relative to the earth, but once per day relative to the
sun, and once-and-a-bit relative to the other stars in
the galaxy. Relative to the rest of the universe, it'll
be once-and-a-bit plus a very very tiny bit due to the
rotation of the Milky Way.
||And even then, the entire universe could be rotating
at 100rpm and we wouldn't know it. This is not going
to be an easy problem.
||Except for the coriolis forces.
||You have the right to remain static.
You have the right to any turny.
If you can not afford any turny, spun will be imparted to you.
||Do you understand these rights as having three lefts to you?

||I'm pretty sure that if someone developed a type of
gym class, strictly for adults, that involved holding
your arms out and spinning round and round, it would
be immensely popular.

Thank you. That was just the right amount of silly for a Monday morning (when I should be working...)
||[Max] start with the simple personal first and when that's completely nailed (99.99999% correct) then increase your perspectives.
