Multistability in the long term dynamics of the Mackey-Glass (MG) delayed model is analyzed by using an electronic circuit capable of controlling the initial conditions. The system's phase-space is explored by varying the parameter values of two families of initial functions. The evolution equation of the electronic circuit is derived and it is shown that, in the continuous limit, it exactly corresponds to the MG model. In practice, when using a finite set of capacitors, an excellent agreement between the experimental observations and the numerical simulations is manifested. As the delay is increased, different periodic or aperiodic solutions appear. We observe abundant periodic solutions that have the same period but a different alternation of peaks of dissimilar amplitudes and propose a novel symbolic method to classify these solutions.
