Prolonged activity of a parameter makes the system's behaviour tend to depend more
on the parameter's particular line of behaviour than on the system's particular initial
state, 3956.

In the brain, the combination of high intrinsic stability with powerful amplification
gives speedy action, 2986.

If the environment is operator E, the brain must become -E^{-1}. 3499.

What is a 'thing'? It is a constraint, forcing variables to behave with less than
complete independence, 4101.

If I cannot prove that something is "sufficient", I may be able to prove that it is sufficient to give a high probability. 4193.

When many variations are possible, pick on one to prove it vigorously; the effect
of modifications can then easily be seen. 4411.

The ultrstable system studied by me is one that starts by knowing almost nothing;
it starts therefore somewhat handicapped 4599.
█General phenomena should be explained by proportionately general mechanisms. 5591.

Often the significant part of "what is the cause of.......?" is "what parameter values
will give me......?" E.g. "what is the cause of the present accident rate on the
roads?" is usually a substitute for "tell me a combination of parameters-values that
will reduce the road rate to 10 per day?".
