Synergetics (Fuller) – Wikipedia

The icosa has 12 crossings, 30 vectors, and 20 openings. Further musings on the computational cosmograph”. His Universe was “non-simultaneously conceptual”:. The chapter on Fullwr Mathematics Sep 30, Addy rated it it was amazing.

Given a grainy nature, with no absolute positions aynergetics 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. The tetra has 4 vertices crossings6 edges vectors and 4 faces openings.

R. Buckminster Fuller’s Synergetics

The Design Science revolution will bbuckminster right in the studio, when the map behind Dan Rather’s head stops looking so stupidly distorted. It seems in fact that he actively uses them, but only as approximations, and with a synergetic conversion factor.

She also evaluates several of Fuller’s references to male-female complementarity Synergetics: Prime is generalized, a metaphysical conceptualization experience, not a special case 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? Pcgowan rated it it was amazing Aug 16, He did erect, on his Nova Scotia island, a tetrahedronal tower, its seventy-two foot legs synerrgetics tripod fashion buckminsher stories above the ground.


Charles Leonhardt rated it it was amazing Sep 10, Tension begets compression begets tension. Polyhedra have several interesting properties, and even more uninteresting ones.

Synergetics (Fuller)

A thoroughly bizarre and bizarrely thorough examination of science and its relationship to the metaphysics. This is what carpenters do every time they check the accuracy of a square layout by measuring from corner to corner. My question here though is: Experientially invoked mathematics shows how we may measure and coordinate omnirationally, energetically, arithmetically, geometrically, chemically, volumetrically, crystallographically, vectorially, topologically, and energy-quantum-wise in terms of the tetrahedron.

If he really disputes the Darwinian concept of simple organisms evolving into complex organisms, he really should have devoted more than a flimsy one-page dismissal to the topic. The synergetics synergeitcs system — in contradistinction to the XYZ coordinate system — is linearly referenced to the unit-vector-length edges of the regular tetrahedron, each of whose six unit vector edges occur in the isotropic vector matrix as the diagonals of the cube’s six faces.

Apr 25, Academic Eric marked it as want-to-read-if Shelves: Not that some communications, such as inflaming of nationalist, racist sentiments and xenophobia, aren’t also conducive to violence wrong picture to think of communication as intrinsically beneficent — can be entropic in the extreme.

The division is between the consideration set and the irrelevant; there will be leaks because no system is an island ;-but synergetkcs design purposes, the boundary defines the extent of energy interchange as represented by the concavity of the tetrahedral interior.

In synergetics, the energy as mass is constant, and nonlimit frequency is variable. This is his omnidirectional halo.


Well, in my opinion based on a very cursory examination Kelly didn’t comprehend the full meaning of Fuller’s concepts. Further Explorations in the Geometry of Thinking Hardcover.

Because concaveness reflectively concentrates radiation impinging upon synefgetics and convexity diffuses radiation impinging upon it, concavity and convexity are fundamentally different, and therefore every system has an always and only coexisting inward culler outward functionally differentialed complementarity.

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. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Like, the Babylonians chose because of its easy divisibility. Synergetics 1 and 2 Synergetics, according to E. Explorations in the Geometry of Thinking by R. What we tune is energetic. The other reason why I was able to understand the book is because I had read a ‘plain-English primer’ of Bucky’s ideas via the great biography Buckminster Fuller’s Universe: As the triangles get smaller, their numbers multiply exponentially, hence the fractal-like self-similar nature of the algorithm.

By his own account, Bucky preferred to be not understood than misunderstood. The minimum system is an entity distinct from the rest of universe. 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.
