[NetBehaviour] How to decide what to do:

Take a free swinging pendulum - a weight on a string. Via some kind of mechanism attach to a battery powered motor so the motor causes the pendulum to swing. This solves what to do for a little while.

Underneath the swinging pendulum place a sheet of paper with circles on it. Each circle will contain a textual representation of one of your interests. Allow one circle to contain this decision solving mechanism as an interest.

You now have a choice, you can immediately begin using the device to decide what to do or you can decide to add a sampling mechanism. The sampling mechanism might be an LED flashing on and off. Who knows what the rate should be? Perhaps days or weeks? But not so fast you do everything at once. Modulate the rate somehow. Preferably bring in aliasing to it.

If the battery runs out: good do whatever it is the device dictates until you feel like changing the battery.
