REFLECT on the IDEAS of Buckminster Fuller's TRIM-TAB
driven concept of SYNERGETICS [in4D] and the in-depth
understanding of Rex Beddis' SENSE of PLACE series •
which he created for children and was published by
Oxford University Press • than to enjoin with US here ...
The Sense of Place series presents a number of IDEAS through a range of data - text, photographs, drawings, diagrams, statistics and maps to encourage students to form opinion through feelings and values as well as evidence whilst developing a wide range of skills that helps students to look at the future as well as understand the present.
“Never forget that you are one of a kind. Never forget that if there weren't any need for you in all your uniqueness to be on this earth, you wouldn't be here in the first place. And never forget, no matter how overwhelming life's challenges and problems seem to be, that one person can make a difference in the world. In fact, it is always because of one person that all the changes that matter in the world come about. So be that one person.”
R. Buckminster Fuller
THE ONE THING that history teaches us, IS that our large brained homo sapiens forebears, were as resourceful in their understanding of 'the theory of everything' as indeed HumanKIND is today. If one single item were to be chosen to exemplify the TRUTH of this statement - in juxtaposition to the multitude of other proofs, from the pyramids, through aqueducts, to the terracotta army - IT would be the Antikythera... a timepiece/computer mechanism? - an ancient Greek clockwork machine which was found in a shipwreck more than a hundred years ago, by sponge divers at the bottomof the sea near the island of Antikythera - that has taken more than a century to decipher. It astonished the whole international community of experts on the ancient world.
Was it an astrolabe ? Was it an orrery or an astronomical clock ?Or just SOME [THING] ELSE ?
[IT] IS in[DEED] TIME for ALL human[KIND] to realise their
responsibility as custodians of y[OUR] pale blue dot, on behalf
of ALL of the passengers of Planet Earth ~ "BY effectively taking
down the historic 4th WALL that kept us separate from NATURE
and BY embracing the very fact that What IS Possible NOW, was
never possible before" ~ such that THE human[KIND] of Spaceship
Earth in Freespace 4D™ can embark on a new collective relationship
with NATURE, which establishes a [TIME]less zone for communication
and commerce in FS4D by realising the dream of a common language
[in4D] • THE WHOLE IDEA of which [BE]ing to reclaim y[our] species
lost relationship, as a constituent component of NATURE, through a
permanent manifestation of the original concept of ... The ART of the POSSIBLE.
All of humanity now has the option to “make it” successfully and sustainably, by virtue of our having minds, discovering principles and being able to employ these principles to do more with less.
