the guise of a
[RE]lived GAIA COMMUNITY which with COMPASSION, COLLABORATION &
COOPERATION IN TRANSISTION remains up and running to this day and
accessible through any internet search engine as well as BY WAY OF my
utilisation of Facebook as a SURFACE to PROJECT IDEAS of TRANSISTION •
and "WHY?" do you ask TRANSISTION • well for those that know and no doubt
understand the multi-dimensional perspective of my right-brained, left-handed
and so-called dyslexic deposition • I have already explained my absolute
respect for the IDEAS of Leonardo da Vinci and Buckminster Fuller but from
now on I wish to dedicate this initiative of mine to THE IDEAS of he whom I
would regard as my best friend ever, because of the few conversations that we
had together during the time when he helped me to re-wire our home extension
in Boreham Wood, namely my father-in-law Ronald Yardley, who when I asked
for his daughter's hand in marriage, exclaimed "WHY on EARTH would you want
to DO THAT !!!???" • but for some one who had built his own digital calculator
and a colour television receiver at home in a kitchen cupboard, ready to receive
the very first BBC Colour Test Signals, and was the very first person I knew who
had explained to me in-depth the purpose of using TRANSISTORS instead of
VALVES at a TIME when, as part of a Physics 'A' level experiment, I was involved
with the building of an analogue computer/calculator at Grammar School,
utilising valves • I would dedicate the very concept of TRANSISTION to him,
particularly with respect for the kindness of the hundreds of Post Office Staff
who attended his funeral at Finchley Crematorium, following his untimely death
at 54 years of age, and the thousands of small donations which were freely
given to my soul mate's mother Joan Yardley and the family. ALL of which for me, has underpinned and gradually evolved into that which I would refer to as...
THE SPiRALogic of a SYSTEMS MINDSET which
is driven by THE SPiRAL ART of THE POSSIBLE.

You’ll find the author's blog at BuckyIdeas.com. Please visit there to read about Buckminster Fuller's IDEAS for today and for news about upcoming events and books.FORM FOLLOWS IDEA examines the work and ideas of influential designers Ralph Ball and Maxine Naylor. Their reflections and propositions provide a refreshing and provocative approach to design, touching on issues such as craftsmanship, modernism, and the role of nature and commercialism in design. Ball and Naylor's work explores ideas of space beyond the physical object. Their concern with cultural and social values is manifest in the form and (dis)function of their designs and appropriations of everyday objects, such as chairs, lights and shelving. FORM FOLLOWS IDEA features their approach to these objects through cultural, ecological and visual narratives. As such, their book provides a playful yet critical re-evaluation of familiar forms and typologies.
ALL of which I would dedicate to my fleeting relationship with Eric R Kuhne and his LOVE of BOOKS and every[THING] related to the SPiRALogic • ART of the POSSIBLE
"Rugged textured cable pipes ran over my head at a train station in New York, creating a trance-like, frightful pattern," says Gautam Kamat Bambolkar. "They ran from the edge of the entrance to an infinite end. It looked nothing less than a scary man-made cave." 1. Embrace abundance, not scarcity. Humans are falsely conditioned by the notion of scarcity promoted by Charles Darwin and Thomas Malthus. The idea of survival of the fittest sets up an us-versus-them mentality. If we believe there is not enough for all, overconsumption and greed are natural results. Only by embracing abundance and setting out to prove there is enough for all can we achieve Bucky’s overriding objective, “To make the world work for one hundred percent of all humanity in the shortest possible time, through spontaneous cooperation, without ecological damage or harm to any individual.” In other words, whether we think we can or think we can’t, we are right.
