THE METASTABILIAN MOVEMENT

"Creative Awareness~Pursuit of The Squiggle Sense of The Complementary Nature."

(TMM) Co-founded in 2011 by David Engstrøm and Drazen Pavlovic. Grounded in the science Coordination Dynamics and “the philosophy of complementary pairs (or squiggles)  as described in The Complementary Nature (MIT Press, 2006). Metastabilian artists explore, employ an express their work via compelling, valuable new information about the human brain~mind. But The Metastabilian Movement isn’t only an art movement. Awakening and wielding the squiggle sense is a legacy of the metastable complementary brain~mind itself, and so is relevant to all field~levels of human interest and endeavor, the individual~collective awareness~pursuit leads to a vast and mostly uncharted frontier for creativity~inspiration…

"Sixth sense of The Complementary Nature. Metastable mode of Coordination Dynamics at the sentient level."

(TSS) “Sixth Sense of The Complementary Nature, the sentient faculty that Metastabilians seek to awaken, explore, inspire and engage in their creative pursuits in any field, at any level and context. Metastable mode of Coordination Dynamics at the sentient level; metastable brain~mind perception~action. The squiggle sense senses the dynamics, inextricability and complementarity of complementary pairs. It is stimulated by the “coordinated dance” of complementary aspects. Once intentionally engaged, awareness of such inextricable dynamic complementarity is the essence of a Eureka moment. A person that has awakened and engages their squiggle sense to be inspired by, explore, appreciate and intentionally engage the complementary nature of themselves and their world we call Metastabilian.”

CD~levels

“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– )
