Counter Gravitation within Classical Gyroscope Dynamics

It looks to me as if counter gravitation in a gyroscope is possible within classical dynamics, but in general the theory must be fluid dynamics in which L is a vector field, depending on r(t) as well as t. The basic idea is that spacetime itself is considered to be a fluid (see UFT366, “ECE2: The Second Paradigm Shift”, a preprint of my part, the final version will have contributions from all four authors). Everyday experience shows that a spinning top does not lift off the ground, its point remains fixed in one place. However, Laithwaite has demonstrated that a wheel spun on an axis, and held horizontally above the earth’s surface, produces lift. Surely this must have been of interest to engineers over the years. Perhaps the terrible treatment of Laithwaite frightened people into silence. People are very easily frightened. Laithwaite is most famous for his magnetic levitation (maglev) rail system, now commericalized in China, Japan and Korea, but not in Britain. As usual Britain lost out completely because its government and senior scientists are far too conservative. In Victorian times in contrast, Britain was the world leader and started the industrial revolution with many exciting innovations such as those of Ttrevithick, Faraday and Brunel. Our contemporary dogmatism led to the terrible disaster of wind turbines, which Brunel would have laughed at.
