Synergetics (Fuller)

Holism Cybernetics Buckminster Fuller. Synergetics discloses the excruciating awkwardness characterizing present-day mathematical treatment of the interrelationships of the independent scientific disciplines as originally occasioned by their mutual and separate lacks of awareness of the existence of a comprehensive, rational, coordinating system inherent in nature.

Difficult to read and visualize, been reading this for maybe 10 years to get this far Just some random thoughts. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. Well, in my opinion based on a very cursory examination Kelly didn’t comprehend the full meaning of Fuller’s concepts. Adding lots of primes makes some sense, and a screen with that many pixels could certainly give us adequate resolution to submolecular levels, all with whole number coordinates.

The R. Buckminster Fuller FAQ: Synergetics

I have no clear understanding of what it would look like to carry this out in practice. Nothing unusual here, except Fuller believed that people like Polynesians and Vikings circled the world by ocean thousands of years ago. The structural aspects of networks of polyhedra are an imperfect analogy for the structural aspects of physical law. 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.

What we tune is energetic. The literature of module sets, finding a minimum inventory of building blocks for assembling a wide variety of shapes ala Fuller’s Mite, Kyte, Syte discussion is fairly large. Stewart Brand, the founding editor of the “Whole Earth Catalog,” describes the geodesic dome, Fuller’s best-known creation, as a “massive, total failure,” impossible to keep from leaking, impossible to subdivide into usable living space, with enormous wasted volume in the upper area.


This method may have already been published many times, but I derived it from scratch I’m proud to say. English’s problem is that it doesn’t provide the discipline of thinking that synergetics demands.

It shifts even more quickly than science’s theories about the origin of life on Earth grin. 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 cannot tell where Fuller lies between brilliance and madness, but his ideas are definitely thought-provoking and his passion can be infectious. Estimates of the size of the shards of the Shoemaker-Levy comet vary so widely that some scientists predict there will be no measurable impact on Jupiter at all. However, it seems worth investigating, because if some pattern could be detected, then we would gain not only an engineering tool, but a tool for understanding, which is one of the wonderful things about many of Fuller’s inventions.

Fuller used 4D to refer to the 4 rays from a central hub that omnisymmetrically define an expanding volume e.

In this book, Bucky defines his vision in a very precise way. And by trying to do whole derivations entirely in synergetics canonical we accomplish the dual objectives of getting a clear geometrical representation and it’s symergetics one Nature is actually using in her transformings and intertransformings. English Choose a language for shopping.


Despite a few mainstream endorsements such as articles by Arthur Loeb and the naming of a molecule ” buckminsterfullerene “, synergetics remains buckmknster iconoclastic subject ignored by most traditional curricula and academic departments. His focus was reminiscent of later cellular automaton studies in that tessellating modules would affect their neighbors over successive time intervals.

Hold the opposite vertices in turn two pairs. Mustafa Al-Laylah rated it it was amazing Jul 09, Synergeticd rated it it was amazing Jul 02, I realized in college that the notion of canonical form is ridiculous.

AZT may be the answer! Synergetics explains much that has not been previously illuminated 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 snergetics through icosahedral, octahedral and tetrahedral stages, then inside-outed and re-expanded in a complementary fashion.

I find many of his visions tough to swallow, but that’s another conversation. Sep 24, Paul Brooks rated it it was amazing.

Second-root-of-two would be a shorthand symbol within a computational notation with a granular, integer underpinning. Is it also fair to say that Bucky’s speaking and writing styles were as close to identical as any rhetoric in the collective recollection?

The scientific law governing this attraction states that if you halve the distance between the two bodies you quadruple the attraction and vice-versa i.
