Why does he so often make use of square root of 2, and to approximations of pi? I dream of building many. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Metaphysically, Gravity networks points of interest into systems of interrelated thoughts while Radiation drains away the sense of our systems and turns them into meaningless noise.

I presume this oversight does not cloud the validity of the rest of his book I achieved this mostly by forcing myself to focus on the words, rather than relying on Bucky to pave an easy path.

Synergetics (Fuller)

Thus the most consistent Fullerian world map would be an interrupted projection keeping the oceans intact, while dividing the continents. Antivirals may cure AIDS: But, to come out of the closet, my own interest is in mathematical models of how we think and how we might think more effectively! This is what carpenters do every time they check the accuracy of a square layout by measuring from corner to corner.

The canonical tetrahedron has a volume of one. Some Tips offers useful help for anyone struggling to read Synergetics. For example, what is the ratio of the volume of a regular tetrahedron to the volume of a cube when both have the same edge length? The use of the square root of two, I believe, is simply to illustrate principles of alloying, and like in the other case, could be dispensed with, if everyone were used to proofs that only relied on whole numbers.


I’ve been thinking lately: Pcgowan rated it it was amazing Aug 16, Metaphysical is always generalized principle. I doubt that I have been successful in helping you understand precession.

The Design Science revolution will start right in the studio, when the map behind Dan Rather’s head stops looking so stupidly distorted.

The R. Buckminster Fuller FAQ: Synergetics

One person found this helpful. I have done quite a bit of solid geometry Fuller was inspirational for meand I have never had occasion to use pi.

Again, I think these metaphysical assets should be public domain even though the CD-ROMs themselves will cost to encourage users to incorporate them freely into works of their own, and to upload these for downloading by others in turn, and so on.

One of Fuller’s clearest expositions on “the geometry of thinking” occurs in the two part essay “Omnidirectional Halo” which synergetivs in his book No More Secondhand God.

Table of Contents

Strands of thought are likewise circumferentially implosive, nonlinear hypertext countervailing against vs the information explosion. The proof that the 2nd root of 2 is irrational fullre nothing to do with primes, more with an reductio ad absurdum showing it’s neither true nor false that the root of 2 is even or odd The four dimensions refer to the movement of the four enclosing planes of a tetrahedron, not to rays to the vertexes.

Synergetics is unlike traditional physics in its insistence on gravity as a circumferential pulling together and thereby implosiveversus a radial explosiveness emanating from the center — a 90 degree relationship.


Get to Know Us. It shifts even more quickly than science’s theories about the origin of life on Synnergetics grin. Generalized principles scientific lawsalthough communicated energetically, did not inhere in the “special case” episodes, were considered “metaphysical” in that sense.

R. Buckminster Fuller’s Synergetics

The space-filling complementary tetrahedra and octahedra characterizing this matrix had prefrequency volumes 1 and 4 respectively see above. The isotropic vector matrix provides a model for thinking – for thought – a model more flexible than the squarebox X-Y-Z cubist mindframe, a clearly defined mathematical and physical model, an organic matrix based on the closest packing of spheres, bubbles, atoms.

It’s pretty cool, because it can be made to jitterbug and it comes with a pretty detailed insert explaining what it is and even refers the buyer to several of Bucky’s books.

The question is whether this has any practical application for ordinary life, beyond being merely an interesting topic of discussion. Do not waste your time, as man has been doing for ages, trying to think of a unit shape “outside of which there must be something,” or “within which, at center, there must be a smaller something.

Write a customer review. For example, his sphere packing studies led him to generalize a formula for polyhedral numbers: East Dane Designer Men’s Fashion.
