admittedly i was in marketing forever so maybe my understanding of gestalt is somewhat different than yours. inference can get you in trouble. gestalt
you chose to make the whole thing fake based on a point in the sky at the exact same time every day and only that one time every day. how exactly were
they related? path of the sun on the ground vs its point in the sky once a day?
is it fair to join the two segements of a circle burned in wood when that circle actually tracks the movement of a single body. sure.. its a day by
day thing. can you conclude that the other segment you'd like to join with would be there even when it doesn't show up? sure. over a year do you end
up with a spiral. yes you do if you start at the right time.
put the lens at the centre on the north south axis. the beam won't always be strong enough to burn but you can track it.
i'm not saying this is the answer to the spiral question but lets be fair to the folks trying to find an answer. people who do nothing but complain
certainly deserve less consideration.
