So, here's more of an exercise... More Zen/Tai Chi, than Mad Max Flame Throwing...
We're gonna talk about phasing the count: A standard butterfly at regular time has the poi passing at 12:00(N) and 6:00(S); the poi in a split time butterfly pass at 3:00(E) and 9:00(W). Crack the 1/4 time and you have passes at either NE-and-SW or SE-and-NW. The fractions of time, and locations of the poi pass, are limitless.
By fluidly phasing the time, you can slowly rotate the point of the pass from High Noon to a Horizontal Split-Time Butterfly. Switch up your grip ( a bit of a Needle Hop) at the HighNoon cycle and you can phase through the other way.
With a bit of mastery you can get a smooth 360 rotation of the passing points in your butterfly.
And thus: the Butterflicycle Wheel (and confirmaion that bhodi is loco! )
Anyone else out there mad enough to have tried this?
