SYNERGETICS 1 AND 2

Synergetics, according to E. J. Applewhite, was Fuller’s name for the geometry he advanced based on the patterns of energy that he saw in nature. For Fuller, geometry was a laboratory science with the touch and feel of physical models–not rules out of a textbook. It gains its validity not from classic abstractions but from the results of individual physical experience.
