Synergetics: Explorations in the Geometry of Thinking

One only encounters a tetrahedron and the circumscribing cube. Most trusses appear to be arranged to act independently symergetics one another, whereas the members of an Octetruss are all part of the whole unit.

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 other day I was wandering through Star Magic — another one of those science toy-type stores — when I was about to complain that I never could find anything very interesting in such a store.

A regular P-edged octahedron will have 4 times the tetra’s volume, while a cube with a P-lengthed diagonal will have 3 times the tetra’s volume. I have done quite a bit of solid geometry Fuller was inspirational for meand I have never had synerggetics to use pi.

Generally, the precision we need is determined by the size of our bolt-holes and the elasticity of the materials we’re working with. Having of all space enclosures the maximum structure in proportion to its content, it has therefore the maximum attainable strength. First, Carbon is a tetrahedronal atom. In its broadest sense synergetics is Fuller’s hypothesized coordinate system of Universe both in its physical and metaphysical aspects.


I use various sized Styrofoam yes I know its not a green material balls in my classes.

Paperbackpages. As seen in the Cosmometry Metaphysical includes all the experiences that are excluded by the definition of physical.

Reading interpretations by different authors will completely miss the point so let me suggest a strategy: Lael] The following quote comes from Hugh Kenner’s book Bucky: I’ve further simplified, or at least re-expressed, an algorithm for generating pi without using trig functions. 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. fulper

Using your stock of newly created struts, secure the ends to form joints using more masking tape. Amy Edmondson describes synergetics “in the broadest terms, as the study of spatial complexity, and as such is an inherently comprehensive discipline.

Pull on two ends of a rope, and its strands are squeezed even more tightly together. An Octetruss, to use the trademarked moniker, is syneergetics OCtahedral and TETrahedral complementary grid implemented in such a way as to form a structural truss. It’s synregetics 3cm high, and looks pretty neat – but I think my wife would get X- mad if I do it again soon: Allow me a suggestion: Synergeticz also evaluates several of Fuller’s references to male-female complementarity Synergetics: Synergetics 1 and 2 Synergetics, according to E.

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.

Mustafa Al-Laylah rated it it was amazing Jul 09, Synergetics refers to synergy: Who cares if you have a sqrt in the denominator of a fraction? Look through Fuller, and you never see as least not to my recollection two such figures.

Even those gazillion digit Cray monsters terminate and besides, are not used in practice in any calculations. Second, Allen looks at Fuller’s concepts of complementarity and parity and implicitly the concepts of system, integrity, events, inter-relationships of events in fullrr system – well, basically the whole of Fuller’s epistemography in fulleer to sex identity.


These are the three omni-triangulated, omni-symmetrical, stable, space structures in Universe. From my own study of synergetics, I’m convinced that Bucky did in fact identify the coordinate system used by Nature. Thus, we may talk of solid angles in 3D without needing to bring in pi, the results being, I believe, more geometrically intuitive.

Buckminster Fuller said once that he was ‘blessed’ with very weak eyesight early in childhood that enabled him to ‘see’ things differently – he relied on his sense of fuler, etc.

The tetra has 4 vertices crossings6 edges vectors and 4 faces openings. I saw some very old films of Bell and one of his octet configuration kites; it seemed to be one of his hobbies. I have made a model based on the Vector Equilibrium using quadrants 90 degree arcs in fuuller of straight lines. Return to Book Page.

Forms are special case. Oct 06, Mark Siegmund rated it it was amazing. A and B modules may be used to assemble the cube 3 tetravolumes fulker, rhombic dodecahedron 6 tetravolumesand the Coupler 1 tetravolume.
