Template:Pattern Tab Resolution

From Regenerative Knowledge Commons

The Resolution tab allows for reflection on what this pattern is reconciling. All generative patterns are composed of at least three forces or sets of relations that form a creative tensions that exist to bring something new into a higher order of existence:

  • an activating force, that gives aliveness to a situation
  • a restraining force, which seems to work against the activating force, but can serve to contain it, give it shape;

and a reconciling force, which pulls the contradiction "upwards", to a new level, where the two can co-exist in a new, harmonious way;

  • Example: excess food waste (activating) <--> lack of living soil (restraining) => compost (reconciling).
