**Know-how is not always passed from generation to generation.**


**THEREFORE (SOLUTION):** **We can record and share our various methods in the form of patterns and we can record the useful relationships among methods as pattern sequences or pathways.**


**RELATED PATTERNS:** Tools are usually needed to enact methods. Methods have tools lists. There are also methods for Designing Tools and creating tools to fit human circumstances.


Each and every one of these methods and tools must be adapted, even transformed, so they understandable and handy for the prospective inhabitants. This translation and all it implies is the work I see in front of us. This can only be done in partnership with neighbors in neighborhoods.

We must do this work as builders only. Not as facilitators or active agents in communities--because I do not see how a model dependent upon outsiders or experts can scale and spread in time.

It is important to understand that these methods and tools are held in abeyance or readiness until needed. Like a plumber who only brings the needed tools into the house from his truck. Over time the Control Room and its users will embed, master and adapt these tools to their needs.

This set of methods and tools is not a mere listing. It is a system, or more aptly a pattern language.
