What’s in a name?

Sometime after we decided on the name MESHWORK, we encountered the visionary work of Francisco Varela. Along with Humberto Maturana, Varela is perhaps best known for developing the concept of autopoiesis and for also developing the enactive approach. Varela expressed the view that the ‘organism is a meshwork of selfless selves and we are and live in this meshwork’.

This relationship is elegantly expressed by Antonio Machado:

Wanderer; the road is your
footsteps, nothing else;
wanderer, there is no pain,
you lay down a path in walking.
In walking you lay down a path…

(translation by Francisco Varela)
