Baby Crying Algorithm

After collecting copious amounts of data, I have determined that the baby crying algorithm is thus:
do 
    cry();
while (world.state != desirable)

with one event listener registered:
worldChange(world.state) {

    pause(crying);   /* Must evaluate world.state unencumbered.
                      * Amusing side-effect: giving care-giver a 
                      * brief flash of false hope.
                      */

    if(world.state == desirable)
        stop(crying);
    else
        cry();
}

Of course, the root cause problem here is that the baby is reduced to communicating in binary, and ineffectively at that, because there's only one bit worth of information that can be conveyed.
