Indeed, Andersen (2009) identifies two opposing evolutionary mechanisms: first, the mechanism of innovation which moves the economic system from a stationary state to its maximally disequilibrated state; Second, the mechanism of adaptation to move the system back to a new stationary state, where previous innovations have been absorbed in an equilibrated system of economic routines.
The first one is element and isotopic fractionation during the process of disequilibrated fluid-flow reaction with the wall rock or the dissolution and precipitation of hydrothermal ore minerals.
At one point QANG's own intra-psychic domain of male objects became sufficiently stressed and disequilibrated that his un/conscious, hitherto consolidated by his omni-benevolent and protective paternal presence (dead father), yielded to an already present negative object who was waiting for his opportunity.

This implies taking as a starting point a disequilibrated equation, which is solved through a dynamic model (to equilibrate it), together with some specifications with theoretical and econometric extensions (Chavarin, 2001).
(2) While rapid cooling in the early Big Bang delivered the energy / matter duality as energy, radically disequilibrated by the tremendous acceleration of Universal expansion, 'precipitated' into the stages of matter production, if the cooling (as I assume must happen--Salthe, 1993) begins to decelerate in the senescing Universe, the dispersal of matter would continue, eventually right through the quark-gluon plasma, in the direction of 'pure' energy.
Then, "under certain conditions," plans will be coordinated, and the system will have no internal dynamic causing it to become disequilibrated. Except that this understanding contains no allowance for endogenous change, it is a thoroughly modern concept of equilibrium.
This laryngeal configuration generally results in a good vocal result and is considered "favorable synkinesis." [36] Disequilibrated synkinesis can lead to spasmodic or paradoxical motion of the arytenoid and the vocal fold.
