The New Dimension: How did it turn out? None of the Above.
Site Review by Pat Darnell
"Whenever I draw a circle, I immediately want to step out of it. (R. Buckminster Fuller) Almost everyone agrees that R. Buckminster Fuller’s thinking was “outside the box,” but he was well beyond that because he... was "outside the circle." (HERE)
One fellow says it this way, " ... Stepping out of the circle also references Bucky’s fascination with inner and outer. Most of us examine our environment from an inner perspective. For example, when we draw a triangle in the sand with a stick, we generally see only the inner triangle. There is also, however, an outer triangle that encompasses the entire Earth except what is inside the boundaries of the triangle and the triangle itself. ... (Sieden, L S. May 4, 2010.

Did you know Buckminster called himself "apolitical." Funny word. A modern Cultural Trends Examiner, L. Steven Sieden, has taken it up as an article on "Not voting: Why Buckminster Fuller said this is important to our success" on November 1st, 2010. Why not? [SOURCE]
When asked if he voted, Buckminster Fuller adamantly replied, “Of course I don’t vote. I’m completely apolitical.”
“Political leaders look out only for their own side. Politicians are always realistically maneuvering for the next election. They are obsolete as fundamental problem-solvers.”(R. Buckminster Fuller)In response of the recent leaking of America's sensitive political documents, I think Bucky Fuller might have really liked the outcome. What if Mr Fuller had the Internet in his time? Is there another Buckminster Fuller in the making somewhere in our great country right now?
“All weapons are invalid. Lying is intolerable. All politics are not only obsolete but lethal.” (R. Buckminster Fuller)Since Buckminster's days when he roamed the earth, worked and lectured the US, it is true Politics has not kept up with hard sciences, and some science has not kept up with other quickly growing sciences, such as cosmology and computer.
“How can we make the world work for 100 percent of humanity in the shortest possible time through spontaneous cooperation without ecological damage or disadvantage to anyone?” (R. Buckminster Fuller)Author Steven Sieden says, "We currently have the technology that will allow every person to vote on the issues that really make a difference. Primary among those issue is the question of do we utilize our dwindling precious resources for war or peace, armored vehicles or schools, soldiers or teachers, weaponry or living? (Sieden, L. S. Nov1, 2010. HERE)
Buckminster Fuller was a revisionist, that is, he saw things in differing ways. He was a "polymath," that is he broke things down into it's seeds of origins to find a common denominator. And Buckminster was involved all his life in the science he proposed.
The Author concludes: " ... It’s time to stop agreeing that politicians can do anything for the cause of humankind by voting for or against them. It’s time to vote and say “none of the above” to every politician. Only then will we have the true democracy and world that works for everyone that Bucky Fuller championed throughout his lifetime. ... (ibid)"
