TALK GRAPHICS

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I reference a talk I was honored to give before the Membership & Friends of The Secular Humanist

Society of New York. This was Their 3rd Annual "Freethought Brunch & Lecture Celebration" held

at the Historic "Pete's Tavern" in Manhattan New York at NOON on Sunday October 16. 2011. Their

very rich web site is:  http://shsny.org
 


Included is some information about myself & the some graphics I focused on during the talk.

The latter involve what seem to me unique, possibly of great importance - yet largely overlooked -

interpretations of major Humanitarians: R. Buckminster Fuller, Isaac Asimov, Lord John Maynard Keynes,

and Louis O. Kelso among others whose contributions might be of critical importance & useful in

addressing the incredibly stressful nature of the current National and World Situation. Link to the you

tube version of the talk is immediately below:

Also Including below is a Relevant External link (Courtesy of Roger Leisner of Radio Free Maine & Fellow

Manhattan Neighborhood Network Producer Joe Friendly) featuring a 38 Minute Blood Curdling Highly

Authoritative Assessment by the Sterling Patriotic American Intellectual DANIEL ELLSBERG of the

Species Lethal - That IS ALL Homo Sapiens (& Much of Related Flora & Fauna) - Capability of the Modern

Day Weapons of Mass Destruction!! This - a totally new Existential Reality since about the year 1970 -,

is seemingly Based on Scientifically Settled Modeling, & Particularly UNsettling in a World seemingly

“Run” by a Geopolitical Class Based on an Unsustainable Modeling Only Capable of Reifying Outdated

and Inadequate – REALPOLITIK - Notions all but seemingly destined to Unleash the “Unthinkable”. This

Rather than doing any outside the Envelope Thinking Much less Action Which are being encouraged

by the “OCCUPY THE WORLD” movement.

GUEST:

(Originally aired: July 1974)

                       R. BUCKMINSTER FULLER

                         (July 12, 1895July 1, 1983  R.I.P.)

                     Polymath / Visionary / Architect

                      Inventor / Philosopher / Author

                             Comprehensivist / Poet

                  Author: Among Many other Works & Books:

                                                    

                                                

                                           Critical Path

"We must do away with the absolutely specious notion that everybody has to earn a living.

 It is a fact today that one in ten thousand of us can make a technological breakthrough

capable of supporting all the rest. The youth of today are absolutely right in recognizing

this nonsense of earning a living. We keep inventing jobs because of this false idea that

 everybody has to be employed at some kind of drudgery because, according to

 Malthusian-Darwinian theory, he must justify his right to exist. So we have inspectors of

 inspectors and people making instruments for inspectors to inspect inspectors. The true

business of people should be to go back to school and think about whatever it was they

 were thinking about before somebody came along and told them they had to earn a

 living." R. Buckminster Fuller

                                                              &

                                  

                   

"GRUNCH OF GIANTS, GROSS UNIVERSE CASH HEIST"

There is no dictionary word for an army of invisible giants, one thousand miles tall, with

 their arms interlinked, girding the planet Earth. Since there exists just such an invisible,

 abstract, legal-contrivance army of giants, we have invented the word GRUNCH as the

 group designation—"a grunch of giants." GR-UN- C-H, which stands for annual GROSS

 UNIVERSE CASH HEIST, pays annual dividends of over one trillion U.S. dollars.

As world society divests itself of that which experimental evidence demonstrates to be

 untrue and embracingly enters into its computer the mathematical formulae of all that can

 be experimentally proven to be true, all the socially, selfishly malignant characteristics of

 the giant may vanish and the omni-pro- social-advantage-producing capabilities may

prevail and flourish.  -

- R.Buckminster Fuller, Grunch of Giants, 1983

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Some quotable quotes from  - R. BUCKMINSTER FULLER

“The most astonishing thing about Spaceship Earth: it didn't come with an operating manual."

"What usually happens in the educational process is that the faculties are dulled, overloaded, stuffed and paralyzed so that by the time most people are mature they have lost their innate capabilities."

"Now, if you were world master, you would not be at all worried about being displaced by a dull one. You would only be apprehensive of and on guard against the bright ones. There is the old strategy of "divide and conquer." Anticipatory "divide and conquer" is more powerful than tardy "divide and conquer." The old masters, then, in order to prevent themselves from being displaced from their great ocean mastery deliberately went to work taking the young, bright ones as they came along, and divided them up anticipatorily into non-self-integratable specializations, which made them completely innocuous as challengers to comprehensive grand-strategy thinking and practical-affairs integration. The bright ones thus became subject to integration of their high potential only at the masters' command......"

Education Automation

 (R. Buckminster Fuller)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"You must choose between making money and making sense. The two are mutually

 exclusive."


  
(Buckminster Fuller - 1983)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

“For the first time in history it is now possible to take care of everybody at a higher

 standard of living than any have ever known. Only ten years ago (1970) the ‘more with

 less’ technology reached the point where this could be done. All humanity now has the

 option to become enduringly successful.”

R. Buckminster Fuller, 1980

 

"To make the world work for 100% of humanity in the shortest possible time through

 spontaneous cooperation without ecological offense or the disadvantage of anyone."

R. Buckminster Fuller - "Vision Statement"

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

BUCKMINSTER FULLER GRAPH FROM HIS "WORLD GAME" FINDINGS OF THE PERCENTAGE OF THE WORLD POPULATION WHO COULD BE SEEN TO BE “HAVES” IN THE MODERN EXPERIENCE IN TERMS OF OUR ABSTRACT TECHNOLOGICALLY AUGMENTED “CAPABILITY” TO PROVIDE “LIFE SUPPORT."     FURTHERMORE BOTH “GROWTH AND EQUITY” COULD BE REALIZED WITHIN AN ECOLOGICALLY APPROPRIATE MANNER THROUGH THE INCREASING ELEGANCE OF “GOOD DESIGN TEMPLATES – “DOING MORE WITH LESS”.  THINK MOORE’S LAW WRIT LARGE.  HE PROJECTED FROM THE YEAR 1952 “A TWENTY YEAR PERIOD OF IMMINENT CRISIS TO ALL HUMAN INSTITUTIONS AS WE APPROACHED AND CROSSED THE 50% MARK."  HE LIVED OUT HIS LIFE IN THE BELIEF THE PROCESS HAD ACCELERATED AND THAT WE CROSSED THE 50% MARK IN 1970. THAT IS THE SAME YEAR MOST RELIABLE MODELING'S SUGGEST HUMANITY'S  WEAPONS SYSTEMS BECAME  - AS THEY REMAIN - "SPECIES LETHAL". BOTH SIGNAL A NEW MOMENT OF EXISTENTIAL CHALLENGE AND CALL FOR A COMPREHENSIVELY CONCEIVED AND INTELLECTUALLY AND ACTIVELY ADVANCED  PARADIGM OF PARADIGM SHIFTS. IF WE HAVE ACTUALLY BEEN EXISTING  WITHIN A POST SCARCITY ONTOLOGICAL CONTEXT FOR 40 YEARS "WANDERING IN THE WILDNESS" AS IT WERE - THAT SHOULD BE MADE KNOWN TO ONE AND ALL INCLUDING OUR POLITICAL AND INTELLECTUAL LEADERSHIP ELEMENTS. OUT OF THE 200,000 YEAR TENURE OF OUR HOMO SAPIEN SPECIES ON EARTH  IT MAY WELL BE WE HAVE HAD TO (AND CONTINUE TO ACCEPT AS A PRIORI )THE IDEA THAT MATERIAL REALITY IS "SCARCE". CERTAINLY THE VERY PRACTICAL ASPECTS OF POLITICAL AND ECONOMIC THEORIZING THAT HAVE INFORMED AND CHARACTERIZED VIRTUALLY ALL OF OUR INHERITED ASSUMPTIONS AND INSTITUTIONS HAVE BEEN PREDICATED ON THE ALL BUT UNQUESTIONED ASSUMPTION OF ZERO SUM SCARCITY. FOR ONE TO WIN ANOTHER MUST LOSE. IT WOULD SEEM THAT BASIC ASSUMPTION OUGHT AND MUST BE CHALLENGED IF WE ARE TO SURVIVE AND NECESSARILY ONE AND ALL BE LIBERATED FROM THE SLINGS AND ARROWS OF AN (ONLY IN OUR LIFETIME BUT NOW) NECESSARILY OUTDATED - EVEN AS  ALMOST UNIVERSALLY ACCEPTED -  ASSUMPTION.  ALL THIS WITHIN AN APPROPRIATE ECOLOGICAL CONTEXT IF WE ARE TO AVOID THE SIREN CALLS OF RETROGRADE AND RISK THE ANNIHILATION OF OUR ENTIRE SPECIES. WHILE OTHERS HAVE ADDRESSED THE ISSUE IT WOULD STRONGLY BE SUGGESTED THAT  BUCKMINSTER FULLER HAS PROVIDED AN INTELLECTUAL BASIS FOR  ACHIEVING THAT TRANSFORMED ALTERATION IN CONSCIOUSNESS MORE AUTHORITATIVELY AND IN PRACTICAL COMPREHENSIVE TERM  THAN ANY OTHER SOURCE  AVAILABLE TO USREMEMBER THIS IS “DESIGN CAPABILITY” NOT THE SOCIAL, POLITICAL AND ECONOMIC INSTITUTIONAL ASSUMPTIONS AND NOTIONS OF HUMAN NATURE (WHICH WILL HAVE TO BE SUBSUMED) INHERITED FROM HISTORY IF HUMANITY IS TO CREATE A "POST MATERIAL SCARCITY" WORLD WHICH THE FUTURE REQUIRES AND COLLECTIVELY NOW POSSESSES THE MEANS TO ACHIEVE.   TO BRIDGE THE TWO - TO LIBERATE RATHER THAN ANNIHILATE - IS MANKIND’S MOST PRESSING CHALLENGE.  HE PROVIDED THIS MAJOR PREMISE "PATTERN" TO HELP US ENGAGE IN THE BRIDGE BUILDING WORK.
