I was pondering the artistry of plate spinning. You know,
the skill of keeping a number of plates spinning on
The thoughts came to me about growth and time and I
wondered if you could use a plastic material plate so as
the speed increased, the diameter of the plate
probably would be a one way change, as in life. A
change rubbery material might have the contraction. I
wonder if pizza dough would be viable.
These mental rumblings got me thinking whether two
plates could rub and form a third spinning plate. For this
work though, the medium of air would not be sufficient.
Also the formation of the third plate would have to pull
material from the medium. Sort of accrete.
Are we all just floppy plates spun out from the giant
Anyway(back to reality), would floppy spinning plates be
more visually exciting, I think they definitely would need
more skill as the flexibility would reduce spin.
