Regulatory Feedback

Regulatory feedback is the process by which systems are governed via negative feedback and therefore adaptive, regulatory control. The most popular example is a thermostat that tells a furnace to turn on when it's cold and turn off when its warm. Among species, however, regulatory feedback tells us to  eat when we're hungry and to stop eating when we're full. Such processes occur throughout our bodies and their many systems, allowing us to maintain a stable, regulatory existence. Universal Darwinism therefore predicts that such feedback occurs not only in biology but throughout our cosmos. It hypothesizes that this is what makes all systems stable in a dynamic, ever-changing universe.
