The Living Thing / Notebooks :

Phase transition

A weird obsessions of physicists; where small changes in parameters induce large changes in system state, something like this? Should look up precise definition if I ever plan to use this, but odds seem long at this stage.

But you maybe care about this if you want to know whether a small taste of something is not representative of the whole banquet. (Heroin dealer: the first hit is free.)
