Home/Homeostasis

Within systems theory and cybernetic, homeostasis describes the process whereby a system regulates itself and its environment in order to archive an optimal set of input states required to maintain its functionality and structure. The word homeostasis derives from the Greek word meaning “homos” or similar and “stasis” meaning standing still. It is the state of a system in which variables are regulated so that internal conditions remain stable and relatively constant, despite changes in the system’s environment.
