Abstract: Given an autonomous system of Ordinary Differential Equations without an a priori split into slow and fast components, we define a strategy for producing a large class of `slow' variables (constants of fast motion) in a precise sense. The equation of evolution of any such slow variable is deduced. The strategy is to rewrite our system on an infinite-dimensional ``history'' Hilbert space $ X$ and define our coarse observation as a functional on $ X$.
