Proposition: Inductively suspended wheels, when suspended in symmetric pairs will (when given the freedom to do so) always prefer to orient themselves with their spin vectors anti-parallel to each other, when under the influence of a common centrifugal force about an axis perpendicular to the plane containing their angular momenta vectors.

I am going to represent this notion of antiparallel orientation of pairs of wheels with the following notation

-->

<--
This behavior is analogous to the atomic electrons which also settle in pairs, anti-parallel to each other and I am also proposing that the two phenomena have a common origin in the nature of spin itself.
This proposition is based on the results of the experiment I performed on June 3, 2011 (and posted on June 5, 2011 on my blog http://relmachine.blogspot.com/2011/06/experiment-41-contrasting-prototypes.html). Here are the main points I wish to emphasize regarding the experiment of June 3, 2011:

a) The wheels do NOT show any intention whatsoever of orienting themselves in this way when they are not spinning.

b) The wheels do however voluntarily choose the anti-parallel orientation once significant angular momenta is introduced into them.

c) The wheels also seem to prefer the tangential orientation - their angular mometa vectors turn away from the center of rotation and become tangential to the circle that passes through the centers of the wheels and represents the path traced by the centers under the influence of the centrifugal force applied.

SUMMARY

So far my experiments have revealed 3 important facts:

1. Spinning wheels under the influence of a centrifugal force applied about an axis perpendicular to the plane containing the angular momenta vectors will move inwards toward the center of rotation. This I have named the Kidd Effect after Sandy Kidd, who was the first to discover it.

You can see that experiment here: http://relmachine.blogspot.com/2009/09/kidd-effect.html

2. For configurations similar to those needed to observe the Kidd Effect, the higher the centrifugal force, the lower the resulting displacement of the angular momenta vectors. This I have named the Inductive Effect (after the fact that this is analogous to the behavior of inductors).

You can see that experiment here: http://relmachine.blogspot.com/2010/01/experiment-28-inductive-effect.html

3. Inductively suspended wheels, when suspended in symmetric pairs will (when given the freedom to do so) always prefer to orient themselves with their spin vectors anti-parallel to each other, when under the influence of a common centrifugal force about an axis perpendicular to the plane containing their angular momenta vectors.

### experiment 4.1: Contrasting the prototype's behavior @ different levels of angular momenta of the wheels

I have disassembled the right half. It will be 2-3 weeks before I will be able to complete the repairs and restart.
