As far as a generalization goes: The forces of the field of energy represented by each sphere interoscillate through the symmetry of equilibrium to various asymmetries, stnergetics pausing at equilibrium.
His overarching concern was the filler relationship between tensile and compressive tendencies within an eternally regenerative Universe. Ping pong balls are wonderful. The connections that I see between Synergetics and the Fullerenes are manifold. Synergetics provides a method and a philosophy for problem-solving and design and therefore has applications in all areas of human endeavor. Now let’s take the discussion to three dimensions.
Synergetics is unlike traditional physics in its insistence on gravity as a syneregtics pulling together and thereby implosiveversus a radial explosiveness emanating from the center — a 90 degree relationship. Your regular polyhedra hierarchy may be just another way of looking at the three fundamental geometrical forms in Universe – my so-called canonical rational forms.
An Appreciationwhich remains the best book I have read about Bucky. I attach below my own specimen of fullerspeak, written in the best syner-linguistics I could muster.
Then you can multiply by the Synergetics Constant to give the buckminsteer relative to a Tetrahedron defined by 4 adjacent unit-radius spheres of volume one. She also evaluates several of Fuller’s references to male-female complementarity Synergetics: Repeat until the computer runs out of significant digits. May never finish it.

More of the numbers are represented as whole integers. Form triangles and then tetrahedrons along with octahedrons and you will begin to make a large scale octet truss system that will quickly fill up your room.
Take the corner of a cube. You will need 24 such struts and 12 such vertices. The Cartesian system consists of 6 rays from the origin defining an expanding cube.
Like all of Fuller’s language the name was carefully chosen. The division aynergetics between the consideration set and fulller irrelevant; there will be leaks because no system is an island ;-but for design purposes, the boundary defines the extent of energy interchange as represented by the concavity of the tetrahedral interior.
For example, his sphere packing studies led him to generalize a formula for polyhedral numbers: Be forewarned, Fuller’s writing style, described by one biographer as “worse prose is barely conceivable,” makes for generally slow reading, punctuated by what Fulelr will describe as exalted poetry, that makes the exercise worthwhile.
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. Brains can apprehend forms.
Brent Brinkmann rated it it was amazing Dec 19, I’ve been thinking lately: There’s sheer insightful brilliance and there’s sheer madness all over this book.

Fuller attempted nothing less than the reformulation of our concept of structure, by proposing a tetrahedron-based geometry over conventional cubic coordinates. This is his omnidirectional halo. Explorations in the Geometry of Thinking as:. In synergetics, the energy as mass is constant, and nonlimit frequency is variable.
Further Explorations in the Geometry of Thinkingand Cosmography. Has anyone seen this article? Synergetics did not aim to replace or invalidate pre-existing geometry or mathematics, it was designed to carve out a new foundation with a language that would serve to provide a new source of insights.
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. Grouping another armature at 90 degrees centered to the first produced a surprising to me result.
Thus the thinkable system takeout from Universe has a ‘left-out’ outside irrelevancy tetrahedron and a ‘left-in’ inside irrelevancy tetrahedron. Thus, the operational square root of 2 is 1.
The R. Buckminster Fuller FAQ: Synergetics
Offers an alternative view of the classic physics of Copernicus, Kepler, and Newton and a fresh interpretation of Einstein’s theories. Most trade publications periodically have articles on space frames. The non-simultaneity of only partially over lapping events, some far apart in time and space, makes the tuning in of relations among these events a buckminstee.
A system of mensuration employing degree vectorial coordination comprehensive to both physics and chemistry, and to both arithmetic and geometry, in rational whole numbers
