    Using a 0-100 number to measure biologically dispositioned strength.

    Person A starts working out for the first time in his life. His strength is 30.
    Person B starts working out for the first time in his life. His strength is 50.

    They both double their strength and ends up at 60/100 respectively.

    If they now both stop working out, they eventually fall back down to 30/50.

    Nomatter how little they eat (aslong as it doesent go over to malnutrition) the calorie loss and stopping to lift weight, seems to "stop" the muscle loss at a default genetical level. Im just wondering if this (muscle strength) is also regulated by homeostasis or if these are seperate?

    I wouldn´t claim it was the "genetic level" of a human one reverts to. I think it is more due to their normal activities. One who doesn't move at all, or someone who works as a carpenter, have a totally different use of muscle, however they may have the same genetics.

    But, i wouldn't call them separate from homeostasis either.

    Its a combination of effects.

    Growing up, i marveled at star-trek's science, and ignored the perfect society. Now, i try to ignore their science, and marvel at the society.

    Imagine, being able to create matter out of thin air, and not coming up with using drones for boarding hostile ships. Or using drones to defend your own ship. Heck, using drones to block energy attacks, counterattack or for surveillance. Unless, of course, they are nano-machines in your blood, which is a billion times more complex..
