Summary: Assuming each variable has a fixed chance of getting equilibrium, it is shown that
a system of n1, variables dominating n2 will in 1-pn2 cases get equilibrium by getting it in the n1 and then in the n2, while in pn2 cases it will get the whole simultaneously, the latter proportion being vanishingly
small. Experiment will therefore demonstrate the equilibrium appearing in stages.
Summary: The idea of a "constraint" added to a dynamic system may have meaning with Newtonian
dynamics but it has no general meaning. And the idea of thereby losing a "degree of
freedom" is also of restricted applicability. Hour glass system properties
