Science is a process of testing factual correspondence of known actions to an unknown action being investigated:

Double-spiral, check
Opposed forces, check
No direct counteraction, check
Blending opposites without negation, check
Entering/turning in one concept, check

"Opposing forces inside a circle,"
= rotational moment, check

"When one thing moves, everything moves, "
= field action, check

" forces ... dealt with ... on the supported surface"
= boundary phenomenon, check

You would think that eight-factor correspondence might suggest something -- Shame we can't describe and fit that to something we know...
You keep talking like that, I'll follow you home.
