Let's take a look at the working UAA-system.

Before putting an UAA-system to work, necessary to build up a suitable sensor and effector mechanisms. These mechanisms are for sensing the relevant stimuli and effecting potent responses (A basic principle) and need to properly define which are the primary critical stimuli (II. definition) for the system and need to properly describe these stimuli into the system.

After starting to work, the system continuously sensing the changes of the environment, and build up stimulus routes (IV. definition, 1. mechanism) and connect them together based on the same time activity (C. basic principle, 3. mechanism, 6. mechanism).

The system remains inactive (no effector activity) until no critical stimulus (I. definition). If critical stimulus exists, the given time and near-time active (6. mechanism) stimulus routes (included those which are in association connections) become reaction routes (V. definition) by explicitly connecting to effectors (I. definition, 2. mechanism). In this way, these stimuli become secondary critical stimuli (III. definition). The build-up of the connections of the stimulus routes continuing to the effectors (building of the reaction routes) until the primary critical stimulus exist, until the system can find the proper reaction to that critical stimulus. It means, from those critical situations, which the system incapable of giving a proper reaction, because does not have proper effectors, the system is unprotected.

Next time, when the secondary critical stimulus reappears again, the system will emit the already developed answer. If the stimulus-answer connection successful again (no primary critical stimulus), the connection becomes stronger. If not successful, the connection will be under inhibition, and the system starts to find a new stimulus-connection pair. If the connection does not become active for a long time (because this is not the suitable connection, or does not need this connection anymore) the stimulus-answer connection build down by the mechanism of the forgetting (4. mechanism). In a long time, only the proper connections stay alive. The processes working under the 5. mechanism.

In the process of adaptation to the environment, more and more complex micro-structure builds up, the system develops more and more adaptation schema. In parallel, growing the system's effectiveness, the random answer-finding process changes to employing the already developed patterns.

It's useful to create the most basic reaction routes (main connections) artificially before the system starts to work on its own in the environment. Similarly useful the separation of different parts of the sensor and effector fields, creating partial fields specifying specific sensor and effector activity. 

These basic principles and working mechanisms can be realized in several ways in different kind of materialized systems. The system's successful work depends on the system's complexity. The system has to be complex enough for the complexity of the tasks. It means: the system has to have enough work units and the capacity to store the working rules and can function according to. The system has to have enough work-states. These states continuously changing during the operation of the system. The system has to have enough information channels for signaling the states. These channels are to ensure the information flow in the system and between the system and the environment.
