A moment of truth (2003-07-082)

This is one of the most interesting things I've seen in life and surely one of the greatest moments I have ever experienced... I still can't believe it may be true. It's a plastic ice-cream bag being swirled by the water spring. You can see drops of water smashed in the air. The plastic bag is not going to fall or jump off! It's in perfect balance being guided by water stem. The bag slowly goes up and down, up and down, and constantly swirling too fast. And this motion never ends! I stood still and watched it for several minutes, made a few shots and even caught a video. It felt like God was playing macro physics in nature. A never-ending harmony of motion. Plastic bag and water spring are dancing in the air. And water drops are tangentially smashing around by this balanced circular motion. God plays balance. A point of truth. A point of equilibrium. Forever.
