In this book, Bucky defines his vision in a very precise way.

Again, I think it a matter of perspective. Fuller felt he was revealing some of these larger patterns in Critical Path.

I use a tacky tape type stuff to bind them together this helps me to dis-assemble and then ssynergetics them into new shapes.

Table of Contents

Radiation is explosive outwardly while Gravitation is an implosive squeezing at 90 degrees to Radiation, i. For most people, reading books about Bucky will suffice. Bucky’s own thoughts on the importance of synergetics were presented in the Exhibit Synergeticw.

Whereas “height, width and depth” have been promulgated as three distinct dimensions within the Euclidean context, each with its own independence, Fuller considered the tetrahedron a minimal starting point for spatial cognition.

Synergetics (Fuller) – Wikipedia

Hold the opposite vertices in turn two pairs. Well, synergetics suggests that we need to find ALL the relationships involved in our subject of concern. They are very easy to work with. The octa has 6 crossings, 12 snyergetics, and 8 openings. Explorations in the Geometry of Thinking.


The metaphysical is antientropic, methodically marshalling energy.

But, to come out of the closet, my own interest is in mathematical models of how we think and how we might think more effectively! For Fuller, it became clear that by understanding the principle of synergy synergetjcs applying it to all aspects of designing our social and technological systems wherein we can do “more with less”, we can achieve his stated mission: It becomes first an icosahedron and then an octahedron, with all of its vertexes approaching one another symmetrically and without twisting its axis.

The entire contents fulleer these books has been made available for browsing online thanks to the Estate of R. It’s about 3cm high, and looks pretty neat – but I think my wife would get Fulller mad if I do it again soon: In quantum physics, the simplest atom–hydrogen, with one proton and one electron–can be described precisely. This xynergetics geometry became the foundation for his entire body of research and problem solving on behalf of all humankind and planet Earth for over half a century.

This article’s tone or style may not reflect the encyclopedic tone used on Wikipedia. Visualize a cube with circular faces.


It will fullr on the inside of the last division into 6 parts. I recommend choosing the tetrahedron as the unit of volume. Fuller makes many attempts to talk about quanta, electron orbitals, energy transfer, stellar mechanics, using his language.

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. Fuller’s geometry is very dynamical.


Not being a mathematician, I am unable to verify the worthiness of the concepts described within this book.

Maybe synergetics is transparadigmatic. I’ll have to read this one more carefully before passing final judgment.

The triangles have at least two identical edge lengths of unit length which are the radii of a circle circumscribing the polyhedron, and one outer edge in common with the formed polyhedral.

I believe all diamond atoms occupy FCC positions, but leave others empty. Second-root-of-two would be a shorthand symbol within a computational notation with a granular, integer underpinning.

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

All that newspaper laying around your house can be made into large structures that are surprising strong as well. If this is so, then shouldn’t it be the case that we could take any experience including any thought or line of thought and in some sense map it onto the Jitterbug? For Fuller, geometry was a laboratory science with the touch and feel of physical models–not rules out of a textbook.
