Cool analogy Kelly.

I hafta think there are some negative feedback loops we don't really know
about yet, or don't know well.  Of course a controls engineer will think of
that possibility: the absence of negative feedback loops in any mechanical
system leads to a singularity, or a resonance, or some kind of breakdown in
the linearity of the system.

Singularity theory requires the absence of negative feedback.  We still
don't know if that model is right.
