The four seasons of the Idea.

First, the seeds are found and planted.
Second, the seeds are watered and the crop cared for.
Third, the crop is harvested and there is feasting.
Fourth, the feasting ends, and the remainder is rationed.
Fifth, new seeds are found and planted.

The four seasons of ideation? With some elaboration, that could make a fantastic blog entry.

I'm seeing two main directions this can go:
- the first, to more completely consider the idea of the four-stage development of ideas, from their birth to their decay, and especially to frame this in terms of the different stages different people contribute to, in terms of their different mental processing styles and ability level. Other similar occurences can be considered independently, structured as technical anlayses.
- the second, to do a more thorough numerological consideration of The 4, treated as the product of 2 by 2 - two different dichotomies, which form a cross on which the cycle is created. Natural time patterns like the seasons, times of day, moon cycle, life and death of organisms, the cycles of civilisation on different levels of magnification, through to the cycling of the universe itself. A short story with this as the main motif shows potential. Perhaps other numbers could be considered (The 3, in particular) to add extra levels of complexity, forming a narrative akin to The Republic.

An additional option: to use ideas of numerology such as this in structuring music compositions.

You could also expand the scope to show that virtually everything undergoes lifecycle development stages, with the above as analogy for the rest.
