    If that brings you peace of mind that's great, just don't expect the rest of us to agree with you.

    That's like saying motorcycle stunts are a fake refutation of true motorcycle stunts (where the modifier "true" spuriously means invisible spirits being responsible for the performer's daredevil feats). I have no need of the latter opportunistic hypothesis, since the no-nonsense entertainers render such fabled agencies superfluous and unnecessary for accomplishing _X_.

    Is there a physical explanation for pendulum phenomena?

    It seems that the pendulum effect is an aspect of the universal constant of conservation of Energy

    Energy Transformation for a Pendulum

    Observe that the falling motion of the bob is accompanied by an increase in speed. As the bob loses height and PE, it gains speed and KE; yet the total of the two forms of mechanical energy is conserved.

    And then also the universal constant of the mathematically guided tendency to find balance and symmetry.
