The Pattern Pattern signifies repeated types of order. It is a Second Order aspect of the central and most foundational Pattern in the Patterndynamics™ system, Source. Pattern illustrates recurrent design arrangements that order parts into particular styles of dynamically functioning forms. Restrictive patterns of recurrent dynamically unfolding order need to be balanced with unordered states with high potential for new arrangements. The role of Pattern is to provide successful templates of systemic design.
The principle of potential and restrictiveness of form: the enduring health and evolution of any system requires the appropriate balance and integration of restrictive highly patterned forms and unrestricted states of low order, but high potential, for a given context.
