Optimization and “Bucky”

Still under production… just some interesting ideas that need developing.

Pre-frontal coretex for scheduling and optimization
Most personal agency when intent and actions towards “highest advantage of others?”
Fuller on Nature’s Imperative to growth

Buckminster Fuller was the architect and systems theorist, most well known for his geodesic domes.  Optimization was one of main topics of inquiry and he applied it to his livelihood when he lost his job.   He realized from studying his logs that his periods of success were always aligned with his services to others.  He interpreted this to mean the system of reality (which contains a series of cause and effect rules) favours those sets of behaviours.  He took it to the extreme, figuring he must set out to serve as many people as possible with his innovations, and ultimately it landed him among the most powerful political circles and most famous architects.

“You do not have the right to eliminate yourself. You do not belong to you. You belong to Universe. Your significance will remain forever obscure to you, but you may assume that you are fulfilling your role if you apply yourself to converting your experiences to the highest advantage of others.” – Unverified Buckminster quote while I locate my personal favourites
