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" TO THE WORLD POPULATION. 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. REMEMBER THIS IS “CAPABILITY” NOT THE HISTORICALLY INHERITED

NOTIONS AND REIFIED INSTITUTIONS OF A (NOW TRANSCENDED) SCARCITY LADENED NATURE OF SO CALLED

"REALITY"HHC

*************************************************

Earthman’s Critical Moment

“Think of It. We are blessed with technology that would be indescribable to

our forefathers. We have the wherewithal, the know-it-all to feed everybody,

clothe everybody, give every human on earth a chance. We know now what

we could never have known before – that we now have an option for all

humanity to “make it” successfully on this planet in this lifetime. Whether it

will be Utopia or Oblivion will be a touch-and-go relay race right up to the

final moment.”

Buckminster Fuller, 1980

 

Historically, according to Fuller, all theories of economics,

all political ideologies have been founded on one basic

tenet – the fundamental scarcity of life support. “It has to

be either you or me, not enough for both.” Buckminster

Fuller was the first to scientifically and incontrovertibly

find that there is ample to support all humanity. We have

never been in this position before, according to Fuller

. 1970 marked a turning point in man’s technological evolution. The

“invisible” metallurgical, chemical and electronic revolutions now

makes it possible to do far more with ever less resources, energy,

and time investments. ………………………………………………….

JAY BALDWIN

 

As inconvenient to the established Paradigm as “Post Scarcity Economics” would obviously be there have

been a wide variety of projections of the concept. Below are some suggested links of the many attempts

to assert the major premise. All obviously call for fundamental definitions of terms such as “What is the

standard by which “have ness” is defined & of course the countless assertions defining “Human Nature”

as inherently greedy with human desires unlimited and insatiable hence never able to be met” et al. But

the time is ripe for new modeling and discussion and even argumentation based on a serious examination

of the basic assumption itself. This rather than the seemingly wide spread default attitude of dismissing

the concept as ipso facto absurd and/or naive thus routinely “overlooking” the possibility of what could

well be the major “Paradigm Shift” in the History of Mankind. Political and business leaders would

understandablyhave the most difficulty comprehending the assertion – representing the major

beneficiaries of the historically inherited institutional entities and belief systems. Indeed In the end they

might well represent what amounts to a Modern Day Ancien Regime. But Intellectuals and the masses of

world humanity need not be so restrained as the Increasing awareness of an unavoidable growing gap

between the World’s “Post Scarcity” Capability and its Performance will inevitably create unacceptable

Political instability beyond even that so evident today. HHC

Polymath / Visionary / Architect

Principal Proponent of a "Post Scarcity Economic Ontology"

Within the Larger Ecological Order.

Once the new reality is taken into account (even ever mentioned as possible of consideration within our evolving "Synergetic Universe} by the so

 called established authorities (G-20 / G8 - G1?) defending the modern day "Ancien Regime" and its outdated intellectual.political, geopolitical, and

economic assumptions and institutions reifying their Zero Sum Imperialistic Visionless Plutocratic gripe on Power and Influence, could begin to

 recognize Humanity's need - now available to us collectively after our 200.000 year long evolutionary sojourn on Earth - the basic assumption and

 modeling for what might be termed "An Operating Manual for Spaceship Earth." A couple of Links (there are hundreds of thousands found with an

 internet search - another good sign of hope) to the idea are immediately below:

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."

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 RIORI

 )THE IDEA THAT MATERIAL REALITY IS "SCARCE". CERTAINLY THE VERY PRACTICAL ASPECTS OF POLITICAL AN 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.
