This diagram indicates how differently frequent development in the discussed dimensions are today:
- The upper-right corner, which implies changes in both spatial situation and in life-style, is very uncommon. It exists only ine some 'freak' societies and perhaps in some 'under-developed' countries
- The lower half of the diagram, with an urbanized life-style, regardless this is in an urban or rural context is prevailing. The aspects for sustainability of this life-style are not bright.
- The urban environment in itself severly restricts even ambitious aims at life-style changes, as seen in the upper-left corner of the diagram. Compare the different behaviour of Urban and Rurik.
