whirling dervish...

The Wave., originally uploaded by coulombic.

Whirling Dervish (wurl-ing dur-vish) n.
1. A mystical dancer who stands between the material and cosmic
worlds. His dance is part of a sacred ceremony
in which the dervish rotates in a precise rhythm.
He represents the earth revolving on its axis while
orbiting the sun. The purpose of the ritual whirling
is for the dervish to empty himself of all distracting
thoughts, placing him in trance; released from
his body he conquers dizziness.

yep...sounds about right.
