Because of the fundamental nonsimultaneity of universal structuring, a single, synegetics, static model of Universe is inherently both nonexistent and conceptually impossible as well as unnecessary.

Is it fair to say that Bucky’s written grammar and syntax was at least as complex and intricate as his oral presentation? His use of “4D” was in many passages close to synonymous with the ordinary meaning of “3D,” with the dimensions of physicality time, ssynergetics considered additional dimensions.

This is a an page condensation of Buckminster Fuller’s year investigations into geometry, mathematics, physics, and metaphysics.

Now the cube may in turn be inscribed in a dodecahedron, whose dual is an icosahedron. Any one of the stars or point-to-able “points” is a system-ultratunable, tunable, or infratunable but inherently four-dimensional. The wave created moves outwards, at 90 degrees, precessionally, to the pebble. 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.

Thus, the operational square root of 2 is 1. All of the circumferentials no radials in this model are equidistant from the center of gravity; facilitating motion. Synergetics follows the cosmic logic of the structural mathematics strategies of nature, which employ the paired sets of the six angular degrees of freedom, frequencies, and vectorially economical actions and their multi-alternative, equi-economical action options Wikipedia articles that are too technical from February All articles that are too technical Articles needing expert attention from February All articles needing expert attention Wikipedia articles with style issues from February All articles with style issues All articles with unsourced statements Articles with unsourced statements from February Nate Sniffen rated it it was amazing Jan 16, When reading synergetics it struck me that perhaps there are two basic phases in the Universe – tetra and icosa.


This method may have already been published many times, but I derived it from scratch I’m proud to say. For other uses, see Synergetics disambiguation. I believe, for example, that Williams in his book about structure gives data for the Archimedean solids relative to an edge length of one, which I find wholly unsatisfactory.

The law of mass attraction is mathematically exact and exists only as a function of the whole system.

Synergetics (Fuller)

So this chapter can help a new reader become familiar with Fuller’s approach, style and geometry. Thus the primitive is a priori four-dimensional, always based on the four planes of reference of the tetrahedron. February Learn how and when to remove this template message.

Synergetics is a book that is impossible to rate with a star-rating. The issue of volume measure is dependent on the choice of the unit of volume. Most trusses appear to be arranged to act independently of one another, whereas the members of an Octetruss are all part of the whole unit.

Now you asked for an example of synergetics’ application to understanding stories. It shifts even more quickly than science’s theories about the origin of life on Earth grin. The constraints I have arbitrarily placed require that the polyhedron be formed by a whole number of equivalent triangles placed about a center point.


This page was last edited on 1 Mayat This looks a lot more complicated than the determinant expression, syenrgetics then a determinant is short-hand for a long messy expression. And by sgnergetics to do whole derivations entirely in synergetics canonical we accomplish the dual objectives of getting a clear synergeticw representation and it’s the one Nature is actually using in her transformings and intertransformings.

We don’t have time for that kind of bumbling anymore. I saw some very old films of Bell and one of his octet configuration kites; it seemed to be one of his hobbies. A major error, caught by Fuller himself, involved a misapplication of his Synergetics Constant in Synergetics 1which led to the mistaken belief he had discovered a radius 1 sphere of 5 tetravolumes.

A Fuller Explanation Amy Edmondson. It is one of our most exciting discoveries that local discovery leads to a complex of further discoveries.

All the points in the surface of a sphere may be interconnected. Combine editions twice 3 13 Sep 09, I am trying to develop a procedure for giving the ratio of the circumference to the average fulller of certain circle-like polyhedrals, as a function of the number of outer chords on the polynomial edge. 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.

This would have a certain pleasing simplicity, but, on the other hand, it has no really obvious advantage over an over-precise description.
