**Abstract:** Let $\mathrm{MALG}(X)$ denote the measure algebra of a standard probability space $(X,\mu)$. A measure preserving action of a Polish group $G$ on $\mathrm{MALG}(X)$ is called *whirly* if for any $A, B$ in $\mathrm{MALG}(X)$ with positive measure and for any open neighborhood $U$ of the identity of $G$ there exists $g\in U$ so that $(gA)\cap B$ has positive measure. We follow two papers, one of Glasner–Tsirelson–Weiss and one of Glasner–Weiss, to prove two results. The first one is that if $G$ is certain type of Polish group, namely a *Lévy* group, then any non-trivial Borel action on $\mathrm{MALG}(X)$ is whirly. The second result is that for the *generic* automorphism $T\in\mathrm{MALG}(X)$, the closed subgroup of automorphisms generated by $T$ acts on $\mathrm{MALG}(X)$ whirlily.

This is a follow up to the lecture of D. Ihli on 09/11/2019.
