How to use "Bifurcate" in context?

Bifurcation is a process where a simple system undergoes a change in its equilibrium state, resulting in two separate states or trajectories. This can be seen when a river doubles in size after a rock falls into the river, or when an electrocardiogram (EKG) shows two distinct wavesforms. Bifurcation can also be seen in simpler systems, such as particles in a gas, when their equilibrium states 67 either overlap (in a conglomerate), or have a barrier that separates them (in a sliver). In all cases, bifurcation leads to two new states that can be quite different from the original.
