"When individuals join in a cooperative venture, the power generated far exceeds what they could have accomplished acting individually."
--R. Buckminster Fuller

WHAT I AM TRYING TO DO
R. BUCKMINSTER FULLER "BUCKY"

 

"The search for the principles governing the universe and help advance the evolution of humanity in accordance with them... finding ways of doing more with less to the end that all people everywhere can have more and more" 

Acutely aware of our beings' LIMITATIONS AND ACKNOWLEDGING THE InFiNiTe mystery of the priori UNIVERSE... into which we are born but NEVERTHELESS SEARCHING for A conscious MEANS of hopefully cOMpetent participation by humanity in its own EVOLUTIONARY trending while employing only the uNiQuE advantages inhering EXCLUSIVELY to those inDivedUals how to take and maintain the econOMic initiative in the face of the formidable physical capital and credit advantage of the MASSIVE corporation and political states and deliberately avoiding POLITICAL ties and tactics. while endeavoring by EXPERIMENTS and EXPLORATIONS to EXCITE individuals' AWARENESS and REALIZATION of humanity's, being intent thereby to accomplish prototyped capabilities of,

DOING MORE WITH LESS


WHEREBY IN TURN THE wealth AUGMENTING PROSPECTS OF SUCH DESIGN SCIENCE regenerations will both permit and induce ALL humanity to realize FULL LASTING ECONOMIC AND PHYSICAL SUCCESS plus enjoyment of the Earth without one individual interfering with or being advantage at the EXPENSE of another."

R. BUCKMINSTER FULLER CENTENARY CELEBRATION

by Alice Martinez
(from San Diego Earth Times)

If you've ever seen a geodesic dome or heard the term "Spaceship Earth." then you have had a least some exposure to the work of R. Buckminster Fuller. Better known as "Bucky" to his supporters, this month marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of this unique man - architect, engineer, inventor, philosopher, poet and mathematician.

A COMMITTED LIFE

"Two billion people on this planet have no electricity. How can we make the world work for 100% of humanity in the shortest possible time through spontaneous cooperation without ecological damage or disadvantage to anyone?"

In 1927, at the age of 32 and on the brink of suicide,Fuller had a realization that set the course of the rest of his life. It struck him that his life belonged to the universe, not himself. He immediately dedicated his life "as experiment to discover what the little, penniless, unknown individual might be able to do effectively of behalf of all humanity." He even referred to himself as "Guinea Pig B"(B for Bucky).

Over the next 56 years of his life, he steadfastly held to his purpose, becoming on of the world's first futurists and global thinkers. Fuller addressed himself to the largest questions: what it would take to "make the world work"- to provide food, shelter and energy for 100 percent of humanity. This global thinking led him to coin the terms "Spaceship Earth and "One - Town World."

A unique thinker, he invented his own geometry and lanquage of design. His Dymaxion Map is the first to accurately dipict the earth on a flat surface without distortion. His most famous invention, the geodesic dome, emerged from his search for affordable housing for the world's masses. Indeed, it is the strongest, lightest, most cost-effective structure ever devised.

Although he never graduated form college, Fuller was awarded 47 honorey doctorates and more than 100 major awards. He wrote 28 books and consulted for world leaders like Indira Gandi and Pierre Trudeau. His picture was on the cover of Time magazine.

Altogeather, a remarkable man and a remarkable life.

"I was motivated in 1927 and ever since by the most mysterious drive we ever experience -- that of love. I don't think there's any influence upon my life that compares with... love." 
- R. Buckminster Fuller - July 12, 1895 July 1, 1983
