    1. 1. PATTERNS “Nature’s forms are the most practical and functional and most efficient in terms of space, materials, energy, andtime. Nature’s patterns teach us how to get the most from the least. -- Michael S. Schneider
    2. 2. Humans observe nature We see patterns! Amazing, right? As keen observers,we notice what patterns do.
    3. 3. The Branch The Branch …….. gathers, collects and distributes the flow of water, air, energy, or material. It increases exchange and transport and anchors them.SOURCE

    13. 13. The Lobe QuickTime™ and a decompressor are needed to see this picture.• The lobe provides surfaces for exchange, edges, or interfaces where two things meet. The edge is the most productive and fecund part of a system, where the most interesting things happen. Source: Permaculture Activist #19

    22. 22. The Spiral• The Spiral has the function – of speeding up or slowing down, – of concentrating or dispersing, depending on which way the flow is going.• It’s regenerative• It concentrates or disperses energy

    35. 35. QuickTime™ and a decompressor are needed to see this picture. The Net or Web• The net or web is used for sorting, collecting, filtering and small surface exchange. It distributes both tension and force. We can use this pattern to strengthen and reinforce.

    51. 51. The Rhythm/Wave Pattern The Wave pattern --streamlines, zig-zags and flows--provide pulsation, timing and the possibility of measurement over time into a system. Waves transfer energy, slow speed, and catch and store things.Source Your heartbeat is a wave pattern.

    59. 59. The Overbeck Jet These are resting patterns, Like eddies in the river There’s a block in the flow and the water raps around it. It’s a resting place for big rainbow trout! Look at the model and decide where the flow is coming from.SOURCE

    65. 65. Bill Mollison calls all of these patterns,which we’ve noticed in nature, part of the…..
    66. 66. The General Core Model Bill Mollison identified the core model as the model from which all other models come. It is used for gathering up and then exploding forth. Think of writing a research paper or giving birth.
    67. 67. Can you see how the patterns fit in tothe larger whole? Mollison, Page 73

    73. 73. ALL PATTERNS can be found in the General Core Model It’s just amazing!
    74. 74. So---now you know what you are looking for!They are hard to find in real life.An easy way to see them is to look for the flow. 1. What’s happening? 2. Where is the energy coming from? 3. Where is it going? 4. What’s the relationship? 5. What purpose does the flow serve? You can even map your community to look at all of the flows. Like: where are the flows of traffic, or flows of money, etc.
    75. 75. A great resource book That I just finished is called: A Pattern Language By Christopher AlexanderMay the rest of your day be filled with looking at patterns!
