IMO: All things are affected by weak forces created within atomic particals or around them. Since atoms have spin, then collections of them would
amplify the rotation and spin in concert unless disturbed. We don't spin because we overpower the forces and move around at will, unless we drink to
. We see that same spin all over, in drains, tornados do it, plants wind around poles etc. Direction probably has to do with perspective,
above or below equator, or in the case of planets and solar systems a larger collection started it such as a galaxy. Eight of the planets spin along
with the sun and nine of them revolve around it in the same direction. Neptune is the odd ball out that has one of it's poles pointed inward. Some
large mass must have nailed it a while back if this theory has merit.
