| Phase portrait gallery |
A 'phase portrait' is not a portrait of a person.
A phase portrait is a portrait of a state.
In the situation above, a phase portrait is the portrait of a state that is the outcome of a sequence of actions.
Every action sequence stopped more or less before any next action would overwrite a previous action,
i.e. every action sequence stopped before it erased parts of its own memory.
