Physical In every urban community there is some kind of night life after daytime activities are closed down. Entertainment facilities, bars, discos, restaurants, etc need to be distributed in clusters to provide lively, secure pedestrian environments in order to guarantee their attractiveness and viability.
Social Associated with every organizational complex or group there are extra-mural activities to which participants are attracted during interruptions in the cycle of normal group activity. These range from drinking together through office recreation clubs, group celebrations, parties, collective participation in carnivals and excursions, to other forms of group entertainment. Such activities need to be clustered in space and/or time if they are to provide lively secure environments in order to guarantee their attractiveness and viability.
Conceptual In every conceptual domain there are unconscious, ill-defined processes that are only evident when the well-defined conceptual procedures are inactive or exhausted. Such unconscious processes should be inter-related or associated in order to ensure their viability as catalysts for the emergence of alternative perspectives.
Psychic In every mode of awareness there are unconscious, ill-defined processes that are only evident when the person's conscious awareness is stilled. Such unconscious processes, including dreams and waking fantasies, should be inter- related in order to ensure their viability as catalysts for the emergence of new insights.
