OK you look at Earth from the North Pole it spins counter clockwise.
You look at Earth from South Pole it spins clockwise.
So there must a point when you look at it side on
that it spins between clockwise and counter clockwise. (mid-clockwise)
This is where you will find the East and West poles.
Urg. I have a feeling that I'm being made a fool of, but I'll answer as if you seriously did not know this anyway.
No, that's not where you will find any pole at all. That's where you will find the entirety of the equator. From a geological and/or geometrical point of view, no single point on the equator is different, directionally speaking, from any other. Nor is any point on the arctic circle different from the others. All points on any parallel is different to any other point on the same parallel. Only the two poles are unique, because at those points the parallels are reduced to those single points.
From the earth's POV, east and west are directions, not points. The existence of the Greenwich meridian is entirely for political and navigational convenience; it has no basis in physics or mathematics. It's just been picked, semi-randomly, by humans.
