Summary: (1) I ignore resting cycles here, as they will probably be rare. (2) I treat only of parts of constant intrinsic stability with equations of form x^{}_{i}=K_{i}{Φ_{i}(x_{1},...,*,...,x_{n})x_{i})}. (3) The variables in the parentheses (above) are the 'inputs' to the part, and Φ_{i} is the 'output'. (x_{i} merely follows Φ_{i}). (3323) (4) Just solving f(X)=0 is of little use, for an unknown, and large, number of roots may be complex. The total number of roots, real and complex, is the product of the degrees of the several f's regarded as polynomials (3308) (5) To get the real distinct resting states, find geometrically the real intersections of the surfaces, f(X)=0. (6) Figure of 3322 shows that, if we want to get our resting states into a certain region of phasespace then the surfaces must waggle within it, and also across it. (3325 top).
