Buckminsterfullerene will pack into an IVM appropriatelyand, with potassium wedged in some of the interstices, become a superconductor. Isn’t this what the scientific method is supposed to do?

In what way is this true? Showing of 2 reviews. No trivia or quizzes yet. Greg rated it it was amazing Jan 19, See section What are Fullerenes? The law of mass attraction is mathematically exact and exists only as a function of the whole system. Bucky’s own thoughts on the importance of synergetics were presented in the Exhibit Brochure.

I use a tacky tape type stuff to bind them together this helps me to dis-assemble and then re-assemble them into new shapes.

R. Buckminster Fuller’s Synergetics

Holism Cybernetics Buckminster Fuller. I’d like to read this book on Kindle Don’t have a Kindle? We wish to have a measure of solid angle so that we may discuss spacefilling ideas.

She really understands Fuller’s philosophy of systems and its inherent complementarity, parity and synergy.

Forms are special case systems. The wave created moves outwards, at 90 degrees, precessionally, to the pebble.


Difficult to read and visualize, been reading this for maybe 10 years to get this far I was a little alarmed with how easily Bucky dismisses the concept of evolution. But I would add the caveat that he didn’t get too far along in developing it.

Richard Buckminster “Bucky” Fuller was an American architect, systems theorist, author, designer, and inventor.

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. Gilmore rated it really liked it Jul 17, It is spontaneously inquisitive.

Pull on two ends of a rope, and its strands are squeezed even more tightly together. He remained concerned that humanity’s conditioned reflexes were not keeping pace with its engineering potential, emphasizing the “touch and go” nature of our current predicament.

Although I don’t recall any references to a philosophy of humans in community in Synergetics besides the electronic votingI think we need to review Fuller’s essays in Ekistics before we can safely claim that Fuller didn’t develop any specific thinking regarding communities. That’s because of how the Synergetics Constant is derived. Remove the spheres and leave the vectors, and you have the octahedron-tetrahedron complex, the octet truss, the isotropic vector matrix.

Bucky had very possibly never heard of it when he came upon the principle yet again during his geometrical work of the ‘s and wrote to his patent lawyer. Radiation is explosive outwardly while Gravitation is an implosive squeezing at 90 degrees to Radiation, i.

Shnergetics the points in the surface of a sphere may be interconnected. When reading synergetics it struck me that perhaps there are two basic phases in the Universe – tetra and icosa. Perhaps a new paragraph is in order?

Synergetics: Explorations in the Geometry of Thinking by R. Buckminster Fuller

Strands of thought are likewise circumferentially implosive, nonlinear hypertext countervailing against vs the information explosion. Systems having insideness and outsideness must return upon themselves in a plurality of directions and are therefore interiorally concave and exteriorally convex.

One cannot tell where Fuller lies between brilliance and madness, but his ideas are definitely thought-provoking and his passion can be infectious. His Universe was “non-simultaneously conceptual”:.

Given a grainy nature, with no absolute positions as represented by continuing irrational numbers to umpteen digits, I can see how Fuller felt no need to take the Number Theory idea of irrationality as a concept implemented in nature. As you can see, I reach the limits of my computer’s accuracy using this particular programming language at about 25 iterations.
