Some Empirical Justifications

  • Jeffrey Yi-Lin ForrestEmail author
Part of the IFSR International Series in Systems Science and Systems Engineering book series (IFSR, volume 32)


Based on the discussions in Chapter  14, this chapter will look at empirical evidences and observations that underline the existence of the yoyo structure behind each and every system, be tangible or intellectually imaginable.
