Since the pendulum verifies Earth rotation, it would also appear to do away with the need to entertain spiraling light from a still cosmos. I haven't read much of the "Gravity" thread but would agree that gravity doesn't work like we expect or have been lead to believe.
With the Foucault Pendulum, you can even calculate your latitude on the Ball Earth and deduce which hemisphere that you are currently on so it would also seem to do away with the flat earth theory.
Latitude = arcsin (24hours) divided by T
"Change of direction of the plane of swing of the pendulum in angle per sidereal day as a function of latitude. The pendulum rotates in the anticlockwise (positive) direction on the southern hemisphere and in the clockwise (negative) direction on the northern hemisphere. The only points where the pendulum returns to its original orientation after one day are the poles and the equator."
flight trajectories are typically curved (due to the sphericity and rotation of the Earth)

Since we observe many things spinning and warping both around the world we inhabit and in the observable heavens which we cannot physically reach, we may also wonder if light and electromagnetism doesn't also have a helixical, spiral or wave pattern of some kind that is exaggerated or which grows depending on conditions. As we witness magnetism and electromagnetism having spin, direction and amplitude, we might suggest that larger versions warp the further away it is. It's possible that while the cosmos are only moving as much as we observe them to move from the standpoint of someone racing across the 40,000 km at 1667 km/h (or roughly transiting the “globe” in 24 hours) — that is to say not moving — the light from a still or semi-still or even orbiting Sun (as per the Tycho-Shack model, which I am a fan of because of its elegance) in such a case takes a certain time to “spiral in”, while the stars take a different time, and so forth. This would mean the star positions and the Milky Way are more than illusions — they would be shifted from their actual place based on their distance from us and the additional time it takes for the light to come in doing its thing.
However, the stars and cosmos seem to move so perfectly with each other, as if it were merely our perspective that's changing, and so such an idea would have to take this into account. Could it be that, like distant objects that appear to merge together, distant electromagnetic qualities become less distinguishable as well? Could “star twinkle” not purely be from “space dust/debris” but from some pulsing and measurable electromagnetic pattern?
