It is of utmost importance that we do not lose touch with certain fundamental principles. Lessons learnt as it were he said tapping his cane on the blackboard. Squires, are you listening? What’s that you’re doing boy? “When in doubt go back to first principles.” Ah well yes ahem, carry on…
The first of which was beautifully articulated by R. Buckminster Fuller. I choose to describe this thing in words rather than post a diagram or insert links but this is not laziness it’s discipline. Three triangles arranged side to side like a facet of a geodome, how many now and there’s four. The whole is more than the sum of its parts. The surplus. Now it is possible to take any two things at random from any domain and connect them. I can grab an avatar here and there an idea and they will interact in someway or one can gain more control over the Morrison-Huxley Effect and reach that ullulate harmonic by allowing the choices to be random but within certain parameters. For instance we could insist on a previous common context since all meaning is entirely context dependant like some cafe by the sea,
Squires! Are you listening? What’s that boy? In your pocket? What did you just do?

  1. subtitle “Stealing Kisses”
    oh and The Boss says to tell you the thing with the tags is really starting to work beautifully. You’re getting the three dimensional text thingy working again with a little more sophistication. Sometimes things just work which is cool.

  2. Hahaha… isn’t it weird what cheers me up? That has cheered me up muchly. I try to tell people I like maths and suchlike because there are definite answers even if the answers are excrutiatingly difficult to come by, they are always there. It’s the same with your work and this is a fabulous, flamboyant feather in your cap Squires. Puts it all into context for me, I think… or not, haha.

  3. I love the word Buckminsterfullerine…

    Ullulate, I like that.

  4. Awesome and absolutely 🙂 !! I read some of the Puzzle Box finally today, its brilliant, I love it!!

    I find I have been unconsciously inspired by some of your stuff Paul, THANK YOU!! And also, how could you 😦 ?
    Ahha! It is you, Mental Mist. I knew where most of the books had gone but one was intriguing me. I am so glad it was you and I hope you enjoy it. As for the unconscious influence, uhoh! hahaha. Thankyou so much for buying for the book.
