The standard multi-threading in Morphic is through the step and alarm 

You can register step methods that will get called periodically at the 
appropriate times from the UI task. You can also register for a 
one-shot alarm.

Note that you can have more than one step method active at a time, 
with different frequencies. (see step:at: and friends). So you're not 
limited to just using #step and #wantsSteps.
