Bucky went far in describing experience in terms of the experientially derived model, discovering along the way the synergetically surprising benefits to build structures based upon the special case structures designed using the generalized principles understood using this evermore useful mentality.

The tunable is special case, sensorially apprehensible episoding.

Synergetics: Explorations in the Geometry of Thinking

Therefore, he would rather you re-read a sentence out of sheer necessity, rather than skim through and misunderstand his points. Gravity begets radiation begets gravity. Don’t use a lot of tape at the ends. Explorations in the Geometry of ThinkingSynergetics 2: Bucky had very possibly never heard of it when he came upon the principle yet again during his geometrical work of synergefics ‘s and wrote to his patent lawyer.

That is space, the field of potential experience, I would say.

To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. For instance, can anyone out there right now communicate an experience to me using Synergetics? Whatever the reason he always has something extraordinary and extravagant to say about everything. Buckminster Fuller coined the term and attempted to define its scope in his two-volume work Synergetics. Snow’s “two cultures” and result in a greater level of scientific literacy in the general population. Its emphasis on visual and spatial phenomena combined with Fuller’s holistic approach fosters the kind of lateral thinking which so often leads to creative breakthroughs.


Give us this eternity our daily integrity and fore-give us our dis-integrations as we fore-give those who dis-integrate around us. Synerfetics his own words: Tetrahedral mensuration also involved substituting what Fuller called the “isotropic vector matrix” IVM for the standard XYZ coordinate system, as his principal conceptual backdrop for special case physicality:. I have no clear understanding of what it would look like to carry this out in practice. A production line xynergetics strut makers, and joiners can really pump out the structures.

Forms are special case systems. Vis-a-vis whatever is in experience at the moment, is a vast otherness, which is by definition not tuned.

The R. Buckminster Fuller FAQ: Synergetics

Finally, I noticed that Allen’s article is a very interesting piece of scholarly applied synergetics and synergetics’ philosophy. Systems are spherical networks of interrelated points of interest.

Over time, we’d build up quite a library. Nature is not using PI, nor are humans part of nature. It Using an inspired combination of geometric logic and metaphors from familiar human experience, Bucky invites readers to join him on a trip through a four-dimensional Universe, where concepts as diverse as entropy, Einstein’s relativity equations, and the meaning of existence become clear, understandable, and immediately involving.

More, though, it’s the word building associations, lying in the dark thinking of all the metaphysical communications going around the world networking, diplomacy, broadcasting, satellites, telephone, exchange programs, advertising as a circumferential countering of more physical explosions of violence bomb blasts, big and small, gun fire.

Synergetics also distinguished between gravitational and precessional relationships among moving bodies, the latter referring to the vast majority of cosmic relationships, which are nondegree and do not involve bodies “falling in” to one another Weave, weaver of the wind.


Take the corner of a cube. Karina Rivadeneyra rated it it was amazing Apr 29, Fuller was continually on the lookout for ways to connect the dots, often purely speculatively. I’m just trying to figure-out what that wynergetics might be!

Lists with This Book. A truss is an engineering mechanism for dispersing loads across a relatively long span, to enable coverage of large, primarily horizontal areas with a synergetids of underpinning supports posts.

Table of Contents

Involves filling a unit circle with a fractal pattern of similar triangles, thereby approaching pi as an area vs circumference. Do the rest of the decimal places have any meaning? It is the minimum space enclosure, with four identical sides nothing simpler can be envisaged. I was a little alarmed with how filler Bucky dismisses the concept of evolution.

A regular P-edged octahedron will have 4 times the tetra’s volume, while a cube with a P-lengthed diagonal will have 3 times the tetra’s volume. Updated author Preface and new Foreword by Fullfr. First, she provides a test-case example of Fuller’s principle that the minimum conceptual system is structured tetrahedrally.

I’ve also simplified the computer program a bit: The Jitterbug Transformation provided a unifying dynamic in this work, with much significance attached to the doubling and quadrupling of edges that occurred, when a cuboctahedron is collapsed through icosahedral, octahedral and tetrahedral stages, synerggetics inside-outed and re-expanded in a complementary fashion.

Now have the outer mid-edges of those new triangles move out to the circumference again, making more, smaller triangles. The minimum system is an entity distinct from the rest of universe.
