Re: The Coriolis Effect

If the universe were rotating about a central point, all the bodies in it would have to be gravitationally bound to that point, so it would represent the center of an enormous mass. So I imagine there would be some effect, as in the paper above. But I'm not sure it would be the same effect as the planet itself rotating in a non-rotating universe. If it would, such that the two situations were indistinguishable, it seems you'd have a new kind of equivalence principle between the two situations.
