At this point you don't really have enough structure to define such a
feedback loop. Since you have streams of different rates, you need to
find some common ground to merge them. The path taken by Reactive is to
assign a timestamp to events, and ensure that merging preserves time
ordering. Of course you'll immediately run into the problem of
simultaneous occurrences, and it depends on the context how you want to
resolve them.

Also, what you're trying to achieve looks similar to Peakachu, so you
might want to check it out, especially the Program abstraction [1]. It
even has a feedback combinator with a slightly different signature.
