synergetics coordinates

I tried to post this to geometry.pre-college because it's for kids, but
it won't go through.

The second volume of Buckminster Fuller's books Synergetics was
published in 1979, twenty five years ago. All of humanity had to learn
things like the synergetics sixty degree coordinate system to do more
with less soon or it would be curtains for humanity, according to
Bucky.

Take a look at "Synergetics Coordinates Applications" at:

I've gotten only one comment so far, "very interesting paper", from one
person, but it's supposed to be important according to Synergetics
section 201.22:
---
201.22 ...
The adoption of the tetrahedron as mensural unity, as proposed in Table
223.64, and the recognition of the isotropic vector matrix as the
rational coordinate model, are all that is needed to reveal the
implicit omnirationality of all chemical associating and
disassociating. Thus we can provide a single language to recognize and
accommodate__

Bohr?s fundamental complementarity;
Bridgman?s operational procedure;
Brouwer?s fixed-point theorem;
Gibbs? phase rule;
Field equations;
Einstein?s energy equation;
Euler?s topology of points, areas, and lines;
Kepler?s third law;
Newton?s theory of gravity;
Pauling?s chemical structuring;
Pauli?s exclusion principle;
Thermodynamic laws;
L.L. Whyte?s point system

Posts on the Internet show even Bucky Fuller fans just love ninety
degree Cartesian coordinates, they don't mind irrational numbers, and
they think sixty degree coordinates complicate things.

The web site does not try to show a graphic of the vector equilibrium
or isotropic vector matrix because drawings or even rotatable computer
graphics are too hard to understand. You have to make a model you can
hold in your hands or you are "blind-flown" as in this quote from
section 204.01:
---
204.01 ...
Because these tasks are being carried by the computers, and men are
getting along all right on their blind-flown scientific pilgrimages,
realization of the significance of the sensorially conceptual facility
of dealing with nature that is opened up by synergetics has been slow.

Here is a response to an email, from MathSource, about Mathematica
notebooks based on Synergetics that have been in MathSource a long
time. The average lemonade stand gets more customers.

Dear Clifford Nelson,

two notebooks in the top 150. (I only have one, myself).
