1. Hi there,

I'm new here. I thought I'd start off with a question which I've always wondered about

A spinning wheel is said to be more stable than a non-spinning one. Hence the fact that people can ride a bike without falling down. I just don't understand why this is the case. I mean, sure there are forces, acceleration etc. in the plane of the wheel when it is spinning, but these are suposed to be independent from forces perpendicular to that plane, right? So how come a spinning wheel gains stability?

3. It's in a state of "time meditation"........it's harder to interrupt..........it;s spinning.......a lot..........a lot of "time" issues.

It's like telling a cyclone to "go......piss off".......it's not easy........a cyclone thinks about how much matter is can disrupt and destroy.........as much as it can.

5. Wow.......

And here I was thinking "backyard logic" was aiming to raise the standard of this forum..........

Now you offer some type of hyperspace material?

Ok.

Look, I've had a few drinks...........give me only one more hourrrrr.........and then it's back to the office, something you boys at school wouldn't know about yet.

6. That actually helps a lot. Thanks!

7. And here I was being your fantasy cop?

.....with a question like that?

8. Sorry man! But I do appreciate it!

9. Yesssssssss.

As I do.

Ok, briefly, "how fast does your head spin, as a thought process........and is that solid?"

10. I have no idea

11. Ok.

Sir.

Find your reference in the solar system, for once.

Use your mind..........understand exactly your own "spin" reference, find the "gold standard" of "non-spin" (in this Universe........because someone will), and then ask the question.......the one you asked, the question you asked.

12. Ultimately you seek someone who can explain how the wheels of their chariots spin........a God, the wheels that carry a God.......a singular reference that can exlain to people the priority of a rotating wheel over one that lacks the "velocity" of opinion.......if not perceived comment?

13. Here is another good article
wikipedia article
Interestingly, the gyroscopic effect is not necessary. It has been proven that a bicycle can be ridden with the gyroscopic effect canceled out by a counter-rotating wheel.
