|Kirby Urner, 4D Solutions|
|Curriculum Concepts from the Fuller School. Primitive topologies: non-Euclidean definitions of points, lines, planes as non-zero, parameterized entities, with light affecting properties in ray traced views; Concentric hierarchy: a reference frame relating primitive polyhedra in terms of relative size, orientation, transformations (morph relations); Computer design tools using polyhedral primitives; Sphere packing: concentric packings, nucleated and non-nucleated. The octet-truss (space frame) as a standard reference lattice in crystallography; Hypertoons: networks of synergetics scenarios interlinking key frames, providing for continuous animations or user-explorable systems. Also Design Science and General Systems Theory.|
