Neuronal homeostasis – the balancing of tension in the individual body – the nerve cells send their electrical impulses through the neuronal network in a restricted voltage level. If the body falls below or exceeds this voltage level, the organism fails. Therefore, internal regulations exist in the cells to maintain this voltage level in the body. This inherent effort is called neuronal homeostasis.

Socio-cultural homeostasis – the collective tension discharges in society – the bodies are connected through exchange and build up collective tension surpluses through social conditioning. These surges are discharged into various actions – be it the manifold activities in the everyday life of the individual or the great social upheavals that affect everyone. For this flow of collective charges, the subjective “homeostasis experiences an expansion into the socio-cultural sphere. Examples of these new means of regulation are judicial systems, economic and political organizations, the arts, medicine, and technology” *. Paradoxically, social cultural homeostasis not only guarantees the stability of social systems, but also their constant transformation, which is why Niklas Luhmann, Francisco Varela and other sociologists have argued for the replacement of the term homeostasis by the term homeodynamics.
