Ants and cogwheels

Hamsters on a spinning wheel reach nowhere except that they are perpetually running. Life is rife with the mental traps of obsession, reversion and delusions of success\wealth. All these are traps of our own making. 

The two ants on these spinning cogwheels have no other option but to move ,lest they will be crushed to oblivion.

Which one of these wheels is spinning clockwise.They seem to move in both directions, depending on how you look at it !
Initially I had designed the yellow ring to move counter clockwise ,but it seems to move clockwise relative to the  other rings. Relativity is the key.
