One of the stability indications of a living system is the variation of the system's characteristic time scales. Underlying the stability mechanism are the structural hierarchy and self-organization of systems, the factors that give rise to a positive (accelerating) feedback and a negative (braking) feedback. In highly organized living organisms information processing in the brain cortex plays a special role.
