The View From A Rotating Platform
Imagine being being in a rotating restaurant
on top of a tall building. All the outside
objects are very far away – much farther
than the distance across the room.
Paint the view on the windows – and keep
the people near the center of the room –
away from the windows themselves.
Can the people tell if the room is rotating,
or if the painted windows are just moving
around the room?
Which is more reasonable – a rotating
room or rotating painted windows?
