According to Newton's First Law, a body in motion tends to keep a straight line of travel unless acted upon by an unbalanced force. There are no exceptions to the rule because it is thought to be an act of Nature. Indeed, a ball twirling from a string tries to move in a straight line, but is this tendency really just an act of Nature? The purpose of this note is to question our current understanding of motion.
