    In the above discussion and document I would suggest that a starting point is to consider the question of values upon which outcomes, structures and policies can be developed. Values can be seen in a more traditional analogy as the 'foundation stones'. Or alternatively in a more dynamic ecological structure, as an being like memes or genes, upon which a wide diversity of 'things' then emerge. Values are more abstract than policies or structures, which can be material and concrete, but they guide the development of these things.
