‘Reflection’ is in fact zooming out in trying to connect the dots. Or as Alexander von Humboldt stated in 1858 (Cosmos part I) in connecting the dots between the different sciences: “Physical geography…, elevated to a higher point of view, … embraces the sphere of organic life…”. 

That was a great discovery. He was in fact the first ecologist with a holistic view on the natural environment. Darwin adored him. In the same way the public domain can be considered, as well as its governance. Zooming out is reflection.

Some say reflection is needed to get the bigger picture of things, people and happenings or to develop a sabbatical and clear view. For some people reflection works as a catharsis or to “re-create” itself and one’s thoughts. For others it is just a way to find another perspective. Anyway reflection can help us to get the bigger picture, see more sharply the connection of elements within the public domain and thereby contribute to better decision making and putting things in perspective.
