Isn't the velocity difference greater the further you get
from the center of a circle on a lever arm
and that would mean the closer to the very end
the better the signal and the damping ?
The free end I mean and not the fulcrum end.
Sort of like the cause of the coreolis pseudo force
but not exactly ? It is interesting the mass stays still
while the fulcrum moves yet the differences are at the end
and that's where it matters for sensing things.

might be nice to have a lever 32 miles long.

possibly a beam of light ( laser pointer ) makes a better lever.

This ranger guy showed me how he uses a laser pointer
to detect enemy movement after dark in the jungle.
I was thinking seismometer rather than enemies tho.
He also showed me how to break someone's knee with a side
kick but I'm really not interested in the violence
of humans but the violence of gods or devils that
creates earthquakes. Such wonderful people
here in the prison town called Apache Junction AZ.
They (City Council Members) seem to be a greater danger than anything
mother nature can throw ones way.
I'm thinking of the possibility of visiting Socrates one day.
Such a wonderful septic EARTH we live on in the Goldie locks zone.
