Approach the Equilibrium Machine
Turn on the Candle

Wait

The machine has two sides, DOWN and UP
DOWN has to burn, UP has to stay cool

The heat of the flame hits DOWN's Heatsink
DOWN's Heatsink get gets warmer and warmer

UP's Heatsink gets rid of the heat

Wait

Right in the middle of the Equilibrium Machine,
in the middle of DOWN's and UP's Heatsinks, there is a flat, squared device
It is almost invisible
It is called TEG
If the temperature difference between TEG's two faces is big enough TEG produces electricity

When the temperature difference between TEG's two faces gets big enough TEG produces electricity

The electricity runs to power four Fans
Two are DOWN's
Two are UP's

The Fans start randomly
Sometimes after ten seconds
Sometimes after five minutes
Sometimes they need an active push
Sometimes they manage by themselves
Sometimes DOWN's are the first ones
Sometimes UP's are the first ones
Sometimes they start together

UP's Fans help UP to get rid of the heat more efficiently
UP gets cooler

TEG has more temperature difference
TEG produces more electricity

DOWN's Fans blow more oxygen on the Candle

Sometimes DOWN's Fans blow softly
The Candle burns weaker
And the Wax melts slower
And the Wax solidifies slower
And TEG has less temperature difference
And TEG produces less electricity
And the Equilibrium Machine runs for longer

Sometimes DOWN's Fans blow strongly
The Candle burns harder
And the Wax melts faster
And the Wax solidifies faster
And TEG has more temperature difference
And TEG produces more electricity
And the Equilibrium Machine runs for shorter

Sometimes DOWN's Fans are too powerful
The Candle goes off
And TEG has no temperature difference anymore
And TEG doesn't produce electricity anymore
And the Equilibrium Machine slowly stops

Approach the Equilibrium Machine
Turn on the Candle

Wait
