Time to Read Buckminster Fuller, again

Buckminster Fuller maintained that the entire universe, from atoms to galaxies, "is made up of islands of compression in a continuous sea of tension." This "tensegrity" concept may even apply to biological cells according to the writings of Dr. Ingber.# by J. Baldwin- ISBN-0-471-12953-4.

Buckminster Fuller donated his life to the question: "Does humanity have a chance to survive lastingly and successfully on planet Earth, and if so, how?"

What would creative futurist Buckminster (who died in the 80's) have thought about today's terrorism which contributes nothing to man's evolution beyond his 'repeats' here on Earth! Would he have better understood how terrorism traps Man within the War loops? #

Favorite Buckminster Fuller Quote:
"A pessimist is one who `believes' the world to be rapidly diminishing to complete materialism, and looks only to the past with pleasure.

An optimist is one who `believes' in no fact of undelectable presence and looks only to the future for happiness.

"An individual is one, who, happy in the present time, perceives the relative progression of the spheres. Being unselfish is he jealous of neither past nor future. Thus does he stay time." -Buckminster Fuller, in 1928 #

Another Buckminster Fuller Quote:
"We are not going to be able to operate our Spaceship Earth successfully nor for much longer unless we see it as a whole Spaceship and our fate as common. It has to be everybody or nobody."
Just finished this incredible book:
Buckminster Fuller's Ideas for Today

"Universe is the aggregate of all humanity's consciously apprehended and communicated nonsimultaneous and only partially overlapping experiences."
Author of 28 books...Buckminster Fuller's was an inventor ahead of his time...
What was Fuller's "floating city?"
"Triton City" was designed as a floating city (100,000 people) for Tokyo Bay. Can something similar work for Katrina, today?
