The Most Important Prayer

This is a world view in which acceptance of the whole and efforts to heal the whole, in the built world, can be seen as the most profound and most important forms of prayer. They are consistent with modern science and yet call into question some of science’s most deeply rooted assumptions. - Christopher Alexander
Prayer, by László Mednyánszky (1852–1919) 


  1. Hello Øyvind. I have been following your work for some time, with great interest. I would be honored if you took a peek at my post called Permadesign, and maybe shared feedback.

  2. Thank you very much! I will definitely look into your work! In one month my parents in law are coming here to take care of our baby and our house, hope to get more time for studying and working out articles then. Your work is of great importance, thank you for joining forces against the current paradigm!

  3. Good to see you both on EB and on my blog! I wonder, Øyvind, if you can recommend other permies who understand something of complexity and Alexander and would be up to thinking through permadesign... taking it the next step.

    1. Hei Vera! So many people are commenting on your blog! I can recommend Federico Mena Quintero, he's into permaculture and cooperates with Nikos Salingaros, I have a post with him here:

      His email is:

      Also you can ask to become a member of the Peer-to-peer urbanism discussion group, initiated by Nikos Salingaros:

      I know that at least Franz Narda is part of this group, and I've seen him writing about permaculture. Probably you'll find others there too into permadesign.
