25 yrs ago today, Bucky Fuller passed away

"Think of the Queen Mary ship - the whole ship goes by and then comes the rudder. And there's a tiny thing at the edge of the rudder "called a 'trim tab'. It's a miniature rudder. Just moving the little trim tab builds a low pressure that pulls the rudder around, which then turns the whole ship."

(Kind of reminds me of perau samoa & bola sepak takraw)

Just two of Bucky's many elegant inventions, showing the incredible human mind when unhindered by dogma and allowed to explore and design sensiblya most remarkable intelligent designer.

Bucky Fuller: Grunch of Giants

"Man-made laws, legal agreements, royal fiats are not tools. Man-made laws and customs are not technology. They are political power ploys, originally instituted only by-physical-might-asserted and -sustained "rights." Corporations are not tools. They are conventionally accepted power-proclaimed legal contrivances.

There are two fundamental types of tools: those which can be produced by one human unaided in any way physically or metaphysically by any other humans and those which could not be invented, developed, or operated by one human alone. The latter, multi-human-involvement tools, are the industrial tools (high tech machines).

The solo-evolved tools are craft tools. The solo-developed craft tools can be complex and even powered, as by a harnessed creature or a dammed stream of water. Craft tools used as weapons make it possible for physically small humans to overwhelm physically either big humans or even bigger animals--tiger pitfall traps are one example.

This brings us to the slaying of the giant Goliath by David and to the generalized principle of brain-mastered brawn by mind-mastered brain, of the metaphysical mastering the physical.

This in turn brings us to the present confrontation of humanity by the Grunch of Giants--the supranational corporate conglomerates--the greatest giants in all history invisibly "Rough-Riding" planet Earth. While you can see their skyscrapers and factories, these are only the physical properties occupied by the human-drone workers employed by the elusively invisible corporate conglomerates".
I had a dream to start a corporation, Dream Stars & Desert Islands, but it's inactive, as I wanted to marry first, have a wife-life-partner to enjoy the process of growth. Not sure if it will be for profit or not for profit; doing innovative, healthy, enjoyable and environmental sustainable business. InsyaAllah.
