  8. 12. I can’t feel change so it isn’t happening <ul><li>We are not at rest! The Earth turns once a day at over 1000 miles/hour on the equator. </li></ul><ul><li>We orbit the Sun at 18.6 miles/sec and the Milky Way galaxy at 140 miles/sec. </li></ul><ul><li>We're approaching the Virgo super-cluster at 150 miles/sec, and we're zooming towards the constellation Leo at nearly 400 miles/sec relative to the cosmic microwave background radiation . </li></ul><ul><li>The bigger the scale, the greater our speed, but everything is moving together, so we don't notice.

  17. 25. Evolution is in a static environment &quot;Well, in our country,&quot; said Alice, still panting a little, &quot;you'd generally get to somewhere else — if you run very fast for a long time, as we've been doing.&quot; &quot;A slow sort of country!&quot; said the Queen. &quot;Now, here, you see, it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that!&quot;
  18. 26. Conclusion <ul><li>In a complex system you can expect intervention will usually lead to unlikely consequences </li></ul><ul><li>Anything which looks static is probably dynamically stable </li></ul><ul><li>Be careful of solutions without a bubble diagram </li></ul>
