fresh from press "Our study supports the conclusion that rotating frames exhibit absolute simultaneity"

https://www.worldscientific.com/doi/epdf/10.1142/S0217732321501315

same conclusion we got, happy to see we even are cited. (that said I see different interpretations can be done here than our and these researchers have come to, so for sure there will be further discussion on this topic).

I wonder what's the risk of death from sitting in the front row at the sumo match...

Anyway, your paper is even more scary:
"Spavieri et al. reported that if differential simultaneity with Einstein synchronization is adopted in describing the linear and circular Sagnac effects then light would cover an open path that does not match the closed contour in the measured time interval, leading to a space discontinuity"

What if the space discontinuity exists! Another phyctional creature a la blackhole.

"Kassner tries to justify the discontinuity by introducing the unusual concept of a ‘time gap’ and states that ‘the speed of light is c everywhere except at the point on the circle where we put the time gap "


This is as we have mentioned an unphysical time-gap. Standard theory could need this to get Sagnac fir standard Lorentz transformation. This space discontinuity that also is a time discontinuity they could coin dark-time or something. Based on how fast the Sagnac wheels are spinning this is creating larger dark-time (time-gaps). Would be absurd, and would therefore fit well in with standard cosmology.
