My interpretation of Larson’s rotational base was an inward motion to counteract the outward progression.
I have a question regarding this extract from paper RS-107,
“the progression of the natural reference system is still “outward at unit speed,” but with one aspect being a linear, outward speed (a translation) and the other aspect being an angular, outward speed (a rotation). Therefore, every location is potentially a “rotational base” and the concept of a “direction reversal” is unnecessary, because rotation is primary and RS2 does not require “something to rotate.”
My question is whether the phrase “an angular, outward speed” should be “an angular, inward speed”. It seems more logical that the rotation would be inward to counteract the outward progression.
