The desperate plight of our human species, specifically concerning its deadly effects on the earth's life systems. When a species gets excessively destyructive, correctives will assuredly arise.
Our species will definitely destroy the stability of the ecosphere upon which our present existence depends. In consequence, we will pass through a bottleneck, just as happened some 180K years ago in Central Africa, where homo sapiens arose. Any survivors or successors, however, will have to contend with and overcome the residues of a hothouse earth. It will be hard for them, because so many food chains will have been eliminated. It is not at all beyond possibility that we will incur the fate of our sister planet, Venus, depending ypon our recalcitrance about utilizing all the organic fuels laid down in the previous hundreds of millenia.
The presence, nature, and ultimate effects of positive feedback, in all types of cybernetics systems. These arise universally, in cases involving input-output events of all possible natures.
