We Love Buckminster Fuller

Everything you’ve learned in school as “obvious” becomes less and less obvious as you begin to study the universe. For example, there are no solids in the universe. There’s not even a suggestion of a solid. There are no absolute continuums. There are no surfaces. There are no straight lines.

Great nations are simply the operating fronts of behind-the-scenes, vastly ambitious individuals who had become so effectively powerful because of their ability to remain invisible while operating behind the national scenery.

God is a verv.

Nature is trying very hard to make us succeed, but nature does not depend on us. We are not the only experiment.
 

Sometimes I think we’re alone. Sometimes I think we’re not. In either case, the thought is staggering.

When I am working on a problem, I never think about beauty but when I have finished, if the solution is not beautiful, I know it is wrong.
