Thank You for the kind words. May I say I do not understand why the cat example is often presented as as near as I can discern the phenomena of nonholonomic rotation can be demonstrated in flat spacetime while the effect of swimming requires curved. Perhaps more importantly the cat does not return to its' original shape/geometry so as near as I can discern it is not a matter of nonholonomic rotation but rather simply conservation of angular momentum but of course I must be incorrect as the example is cited by those much more knowledgeable than myself. I consider myself falling and merely extend my little finger and bingo presto my moment of inertia has changed so has presumably my geometry perhaps to one which I favor e.g. with legs below me. As for Hannay’s hoop as near as I can discern it not only requires a curved space but also a rotation of same also the mass in question does not seem to change its' geometry/shape. -Best
