homeorhesis

 [ho″me-o-re´sis]
a stabilized flow. The term has been proposed as a substitute for homeostasis, which implies a static rather than a fluid state in the internal environment, while homeorhesis takes into account the fluidity of change within a space-time continuum and more accurately describes the adaptations and constant interactions necessary to one's well-being in a changing environment.
