I like to look at it from the perspective that the individual is the source of creative power/energy… uniformication has a limiting effect while authentic diversity enhances the creative learning and production capabilities of each human… I'm saying this, because if we would see Commons in the sense of uniforming things, processes and people it would go into a wrong direction. The Commons are more beneficial seen as a pool that each individual can draw from to add her/his own creative power/energy to add value through a production process.
Another aspect is the flow of value and resources. Flow in itself creates value and efficiency, and is essential to any healthy system.
This connects well to the environmental aspect, looking at resources and nature not in the limited way of exploitation, but understanding the underlying principle of a natural circulative flow, life-cycles, re-cycling.
To go beyond the trap of the Commons, often described as "the death of the commons", these points appear to be vital.Joachim Lohkamp supported this idea ·
