# Understanding the environment: Learning and communication

#### cybernetic optimisation

Action by a system initiated in order to achieve a particular goal which causes some change in the environment towards achieving that goal. The change in the environment is fed back to the system via information/energy/material flows which in turn changes the way the system then behaves: stronger action if the goal has not been achieved; or the cessation of action if the goal has been achieved.
