Dynamical systems are mathematical models used to describe the time-dependent position of a point’s position in ambient space. For example, a dynamical system could be used to describe the movement of a swinging pendulum. The way the pendulum moves is based on the laws of physics, but trajectory, velocity, acceleration, etc changes over time. Over at the University of Liverpool is a series of visualizations by mathematicians around the world that shows such dynamical systems.

The relationship and dynamics change. Less lust, more companionship. Is that really how it works?
How Much We Eat vs. How Much We Need
On average, we use less energy as we age, and so we should eat less. We don’t always adjust soon enough though.
