A process of creating meadows

A shortened version of The fundamental differentiating process.

We can produce life in space, according to Christopher Alexander, if we make things following a natural, slow-unfolding process, which involves these steps:
(1) Observe and absorb the deep structure of the whole space.
(2) Ask what we can do next to most intensify the life of what is before us, by strengthening the strong centers and wholeness already there.
(3) Try to do it. Life-generating work always involves strengthening existing strong centers, large or small, and in such a way as to make structure-preserving transformations.
(4) Evaluate the result and the new wholeness.
(5) Repeat the process step by step.
(6) Stop when further improvements in the feeling of the whole cannot be made.
