What is a Pattern

Pattern pages are used for working with RKC patterns. Patterns can be added by referencing them from the Pattern tab of Person, Social-Entity, Community of Place, or Community of Practice pages.

The Main section contains:

  • a few required fields, such as a ordering structure and usage mode, brief description, parent/sibling/offspring of Pattern and page curator(s);
  • optionally, one has the ability to display relevant images, give a full name, and longer description;
  • and, lastly, a summary of key relations which have a pattern on their "playlist" are provided here as well.
Pattern page for Initiative pattern
In the context of RKC, an Initiative is a type of entity, which represents various types of collectives, who aspire to take on transformative roles in Communities of Place and/or Communities of Practice. What distinguishes Initiatives, whether formal or informal, from communities is that they are centered around a shared purpose.

Initiative entities must have at least one Person associated to them.

As an entity in RKC, Initiative represents an entity type that has its own set of structures (templates, tables, forms). Initiative entities are created by associating to them from a Person profile.

About Essence Tab...

The Essence tab allows for anyone in RKC to comment on what makes a pattern unique along three different dimensions:
   Aliveness: What energizes this being that really makes it come alive, beyond the functional of everyday existence.
   Offering: The unique value a pattern offers in order to bring a higher-order of viability and vitality to, or evolve a particular system they are working to transform (this is context specific).
   Potential: A tendency in a being that this pattern is continually striving to manifest into existence.
Over time, this feature can offer deeper insights to what each pattern brings to this co-creative space.
