LifePatterns is intended to be a catalog of workable alternatives for people who have already invested a lot of life into their preparing, or performing duties in a career related to computing.
Hopefully there can be a lot of positive and practical templates developed for people to think about.

Nearly sixty years ago, at the end of the second world war, most people who were alive did not have good prospects. They did have something that the modern twenty-first century did not have, including:
much smaller population
no globalization as we know today
slower pace of life and less distractions
most members of the society focussed on rebuilding
As members of the twentyfirst century we have these advantages (see note at end):
More lessons from History
More technology, advancement in behavioral sciences
more material wealth that can be used in a constructive manner.
Longer lifespans that can be used for learning the lessons of life.
