Thanks for your answer.
I think you are right.
But another possibility exists.
G(n)=1/2*{Number of animal's legs}
=1/2*{Number of nodes of square on the n-1 dimensional
surface}
=1/2*2^(n-1)
=2^(n-2)
For example, G(4)=4, four points on the plane is also metastable.
If they are not on a plane, they are stable.
