      @destin hello smarter, i was thought something that only you are able to show and explain, you can make a video about the strong of the hair? how much carry or pressure these things can support? i hope you read this, ty

              Destin, please do the mass-to-charge ratio experiment with the deflection tube and Helmholtz coils. With your video quality and slowmotion it would absolutely stunning (more than it already is).

                  BUT....technically there was no mixing of the colored corn syrup. Right? It was just an illusion of mixing becausse they were spiraling on top of each other?

                    If the rotation were done very smoothly by a servo / stepper motor, could it do the same 7 rotations with fewer "striations"?

                                      He only did 6 turns.. watched that part 3 times and counted along with him every time and he keeps skipping #4.

                                            that makes me think of time and how it seems to flow in one direction when we are the colored syrup. but someone outside of that syrup would be able to flip it, reverse it, manipulate it

                                                  Sorry, but it's NOT reversible mixing. The colors aren't actually being mixed, they're just being overlaid in a tightly-spaced spiral pattern. If they were actually being mixed, you wouldn't be able to separate them again by simply reversing the crank.
