The distinct possibility is that:
Science might soon be able, for the first time
to study individual organizations and their working complex designs,
as individual emergent forms of organized complexity,
exposing the hidden interior designs of lively whole systems…
comes from a Pattern Language Approach to Guiding Patterns of Naturally Occurring Design, being presented by myself, JESSIE HENSHAW, at the July 3-5 PURPLSOC pattern language research meeting in Krems Austria, along with papers on pattern language becoming a general science of along with advanced theory papers by HELENE FINIDORI, HELMUT LEITNER; TAKASHI IBA et. all.; CHRISTIAN ASPALTER & REINHARD BAUER.
My draft paper “Guiding Patterns of Naturally Occurring Design: Elements” includes an advanced “starter kit” for recognizing the integrated relationship patterns behind the meanings we have for our the terms of natural language we associate with them. It’s supported by diverse and rich examples of how to recognize recurrent natural design patterns and use them as a guide to help with perfecting the integration of intentional human designs in living contexts. It’s the manner of recognizing natural design patterns as individual bounded objects of natural design, with their own identified emergent properties and energy budgets, that would appear to make a true “object oriented science” a practical possibility. The Presentation Slides will also be posted to the same directory as the paper, during the conference.
