More About Metaphysics of Buckminster Fuller by Phillip M. Pierson
Many books have been written about the life and work of Buckminster Fuller. He was unquestionably one of the most talented and brilliant people of modern times. However, no one until now has looked in depth at his metaphysical view of life. This book, Metaphysics of Buckminster Fuller, does that in a clear and interesting manner. Bucky, as he liked to be called, is known around the world for being responsible for over three hundred thousand geodesic domes that have been constructed. One of his inventions is an important part of the Space Laboratory. While he took great pride in this work and much more, he desired most of all to prove that the only realities in life are metaphysical and not physical. His metaphysical view of life allowed him to give all his energy to creating physical tools to make life easier without giving any thought to "making a living" or how to afford to do creative work. He believed that the metaphysical principles operating in Universe would provide anyone what was needed if they chose to give their talents totally to the welfare of humanity. He documented how well this worked for him, and those records are kept today in a special collection at Stanford University. He said repeatedly that the principles he used to succeed would work for anyone. The book tells the story of Bucky's early inability to be successful for himself and others. He was so filled with a sense of failure that he considered suicide at the age of 32. He had a special experience at that point that led him to commit "egocide" instead of suicide, and from that point on, his life took on a totally new energy and power. Because he knew that life is not a physical process, but rather a metaphysical one, he had much to share on such subjects as life and death, reality, evolution, what is life's purpose, and other basic life issues. He supports with hard-core physical evidence everything that he shares about these subjects. No one had a better intellectual grasp of our physical universe. No one has better translated that knowledge into metaphysical wisdom. Bucky spoke to over 400 Universities and Colleges around the world and received 47 honorary doctorate degrees. He had a great love for the young people he lectured to and felt that the hope for the future of humankind was in the hands of the young. He based this on their receptivity to the metaphysical insights he shared and their willingness to break free from measuring life by "what's in it for me." I think we are seeing this all over the world-young people are standing up to dictatorships and willing risking their lives for what they believe. The book deals with Bucky's strong conviction that power groups that measure life and goals with their brains and not their minds dominate the world. He makes it very clear that the brain and the mind are not the same. He spoke about this, with great authority, to a national convention of neurosurgeons and the book shares some of that talk. It was a talk, because this amazing man never prepared speeches. Bucky felt, as do many other thinkers of recent times, that the humanity is at a critical point. This book shares his clear insight about what makes our times so critical, and how can we turn it into a time of positive transformation. It is a book that is written in a manner that anyone can understand and profit. It is a book to be shared with as many people as possible for their individual understanding and to create a metaphysical energy wave to change the present direction of human evolution.
