Stick–slip is a type of ..self-excited vibration. ..friction. ..motion. ..friction instability. ..torsional vibration with two phases; the sticking phase and the slipping phase ..system response that arises due to frictional effects. ..friction instability and it occurs where the operating sliding speed of an object is very close to the speed caused by force equal to difference between static and kinetic friction forces. ..vibration with negative clamping. ..relative motion between two surfaces in contact, under the action of shear stresses.

Yes – that’s how I see things too. The simplest model I could find is a check valve in plumbing, inhibiting backwards movement of flow. Slightly more advanced would be like a diode or triode or whatever the basic electrical amplifier is where it pumps forward a weak signal by spinning it around a few times before it exits more strongly.

inbetweenness + scale. you have conditionals like if/then/else, switch/select/case, pattern-matching… then with less direct control you get filtering all of it, which leads to laminar flow which can break off into chaotic patterns which can fold together and… …mix.. and when the chaos mixes you get… gradients but which can also separate and clump into polar regions which becomes binary… ..from which one of the two can be eliminated leading to elimination of inbetweenness + scale.

““We Don’t See Time; We Feel It” Children and adults with ADHD don’t see events; they “feel” them. Our internal clocks weren’t put together by a Swiss watchmaker, who sees time as a series of seconds and minutes, one coming precisely after the other. Some experts think that individuals with ADHD perceive time not as a sequence but as a diffuse collection of events that are viscerally connected to the people, activities, and emotions involved in them. ” author:,%3B%20they%20“feel”%20them. — As I research conceptualizations of time (as I’m looking for a particular thing that I’ll know when I see it), this qualifies, although I can’t find any backing besides the author.
