Constant Death and Replacement

There is constant turnover of the individual components in the Noema. As the components age, they get replaced. Each component has an expected, finite, service cycle. New, more efficient, with equivalent functioning components supersede and replace the older components.

The Noema, in total, remains the same, while individual components change frequently. There is a constant replacement of worn out parts.
