How can you detect repeating patterns using things that perform rotations?

By punching a hole in the rotator and spinning it, as in a zoetrope? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zoetrope

By punching a hole in the rotator and spinning it, as in a zoetrope? Yes but not what I had in mind, the solution is something else

Is the rotation mechanical? Electrical? Electronic? Mathematical? Do the patterns repeat in space? Time? 2D? 3D? Crystals relevant? Time crystals? Phase locked loops? Are the patterns audible? Visible? Persistence of vision relevant? Stroboscopic effects? Are the rotations repeating? Time/frequency domain transformation relevant? Particle spin? MRI?

No to allTime/frequency domain transformation relevant? YesParticle spin?Yesish MRI?No

Is it mental? Biological? Astronomicl? Is it performed by humans? Animals? Resonance relevant? Frequencies? Harmonics?

Are the frequencies in the area of: mHz? Hz? kHz? MHz? GHz? THz? More? Less? Are they frequencies of sound? Electromagnetic radiation? Are they made by humans? Living things? Astronomical bodies? Such as pulsars?

This is all probably beyond me, but I'll take a shot

Repeating patterns: the frequencies? are these patterns theoretical? Mathematical? Observed based on an actual phenomenon? If so, natural? microscopic? electrical? Human-related (e.g. stock market)?

Things that perform rotations: electrons? photons?

Did they perform rotations regularly? Following a pattern? Is the pattern: linear? Wave-like? Random? Functional?

Do the things perform rotations on the same plane? Can we assume that ideally they perform circular rotations? Elliptical? Others (curvilinear...)?
Earthquakes misurazione relevant?

atoms relevant? Relevant that particles behave both as matter and as waves?


WAG: compass relevant? It is circular and the needle performs circular patterns. At the end it indicates a pattern which could be a route or whatever...

Are the things that perform rotations atoms? Subatomic particles in general? A specific subatomic particle? Quarks?

Fractals relevant? Number theory? Geometry? Topology?

Are the things that perform rotations atoms? no but very closeSubatomic particles in general?no but (in the same way) very close A specific subatomic particle?no Quarks?no but (in the same way) very close

Fractals relevant?noNumber theory? yesGeometry?yes Topology?no

On the right track.

Hint: Although the subatomic particles are not themselves being rotated, a representation of them is.

Is the rotation achieved by a mathematical transformation? Fourier transforms relevant?
Spin relevant? Spin resonance? MRI?
