  •  still continuous functions of V (0+ / 0-)

    your examples of "common objects" along with terminal V made me visualize a dog or a person or a house in freefall, which I guess doesn't directly address the subject matter but did make me realize that while force and energy goes as V^ the built and occupied environment doesn't scale smoothly so that provides a source of thresholds.

    I can usually think things through pretty reasonably, but sometimes I reinvent epicycles. Thanks again for the insights.
