The Synchronization Pattern represents the creative inter-meshing of elements and processes in time. Synchronization is one aspect of the more foundational First Order Pattern, Rhythm. Synchronization connects elements into arrangements that facilitate their optimal order in the flow of systemic processes. The capacity to creatively arrange elements and their interrelationships within a process must be balanced with the need for stable systemic functioning. The role fo Synchronization is to find optimal arrangements for interconnections of the parts of a process.
The principle of creative interconnections: the enduring health of any system depends on the appropriate balance and integration of creative arrangements of elements and activities with simpler, but more stable, arrangements, for a given context.
