But instead of the three starting droplets in the video he thinks about droplets appearing ‘unfolding’ one after the other, creating the illusion of a single stable droplet “moving” through space in the experiment you would make this by putting a droplet in the fluid, spinning a little bit and putting in another one, spinning again etc.
