buckminster fuller :: best known for the invention of the geodesic dome –the lightest, strongest, and most cost-effective structure ever devised. over domes dot the globe today.

Buckminster Fuller holds one of his inventions, a tensegrity sphere, made of rods and cables, proposed as the basis for floating habitats known as Spherical Tensegrity Atmospheric Research Stations (or “STARS”), 1979. Fuller envisioned giant versions of the structure that were so light and strong that when they were filled with hot air, they’d float above the Earth, supporting stations up to a mile in diameter.

Buckminster Fuller's Design For The Stars

‎64 is the fewest number of tetrahedrons you need to form 2 octaves of perfectly balanced geometry... what Buckminster Fuller called the Vector equilibrium.  64 codons in human DNA  • 64 hexagrams in the I-Ching  • 64 cells is how many we have before our cells star to bifurcate shortly after birth  • 64 things are needed to be able to approach the Ark of the Covenant according to the copper scrolls among the Dead Sea Scrolls  • 64 is fundamental in computer memory and coding / Sacred…

64 perfectly stacked tetrahedrons create 2 octaves of a perfectly balanced geometry called the cuboctahedron, or what Buckminster Fuller coined the "Vector equilibrium". According to the physics of.
