START-CHANGE-STOP, the anatomy of control. This is a cycle of action. There is continue (persist) on the middle of the curve and other cycles within cycles of action, but the most important factors are start, change, and stop. These three parts of control are run flat individually. Then pick up the other part of the cycle and run that flat in this order: we run change flat, and then run start very flat and then we run stop flat. (PAB 97)
