A bit off-topic:

"A wheel that can be turned though nothing turns with it, is not part of the mechanism" - what about a gyroscope wheel that is a part of a stabilizing mechanism?

This comes to show, IMHO, two things: one should be extremely careful with one's intuitions and examples must not be taken too far.
