    Gil, this is not a very good riddle, in the sense that after seeing the solution, I am still vastly unsatisfied. And I think that the first “N” is rendered as an “M” above. And I “U”s are rendered in a very unsatisfactory way.

    Its aperiodic function : F( x +t) = F(x) => got some time period// and then a ball bounces on it -> almost an elastic ball -> disturbing the wavelength/frequency of the oscillations => i.e reduces the wavelength/frequency and time period of oscillations …making it ALMOST periodic

    finally the equilibrium state is achieved and … life goes on

    cheers
