"Creative Awareness~Pursuit of the squiggle sense of the complementary nature..."

(CD) Newer science of coordination, named, pioneered and developed by eminent neuroscientist J. A. Scott Kelso. A mathematically expressed and experimentally tested theory that reconciles the scientific language of “states” with the novel dynamical language of “tendencies” which attests to the complementary nature inherent in human brains and behavior. It may explain, why we (and nature) tend to partition things, events, and ideas into pairs. Experiments show that the human brain is capable of displaying two apparently contradictory, mutually exclusive behaviors at the same time. Such ‘metastability’ has been studied deeply, and now provides a clear-cut methodology for this evolving theory of brain~behavior that can be applied to areas and developments outside the neurosciences. It has the potential to aide the discovery and application of reconciliations within~between disparate fields.

The Metastabilian Movement


“In coordination dynamics, the real-life coordination of neurons in the brain and the real-life coordinated actions of animals are cut, fundamentally, from the same dynamic cloth. Integrity is in turn preserved because it is never threatened. Psychophysical unity is undergirded at all levels by coordination dynamics.” -Maxine Sheets-Johnstone (1930– )
