Buckminster Fuller (1895-1983) was an architect, engineer, geometrician, cartographer, philosopher, futurist, inventor of the famous geodesic dome, and one of the most brilliant thinkers of his time. For more than five decades, he set forth his comprehensive perspective on the world´s problems in numerous essays, which offer an illuminating insight into the intellectual universe of this renaissance man. These texts remain surprisingly topical even today, decades after their initial publication. While Fuller wrote the works in the 1960´s and 1970´s, they could not be more timely: like desperately needed time-capsules of wisdom for the critical moment he foresaw, and in which we find ourselves. Long out of print, they are now being published again, together with commentary by Jaime Snyder, the grandson of Buckminster Fuller. Designed for a new generation of readers, Snyder prepared these editions with supplementary material providing background on the texts, factual updates, and interpretation of his visionary ideas. Initially published in 1969, and one of Fuller´s most popular works, Operating Manual for Spaceship Earth is a brilliant synthesis of his world view. In this very accessible volume, Fuller investigates the great challenges facing humanity, and the principles for avoiding extinction and ´´exercising our option to make it.´´ How will humanity survive? How does automation influence individualization? How can we utilize our resources more effectively to realize our potential to end poverty in this generation? He questions the concept of specialization, calls for a design revolution of innovation, and offers advice on how to guide ´´spaceship earth´´ toward a sustainable future. And it Came to Pass - Not to Stay brings together Buckminster Fuller´s lyrical and philosophical best, including seven ´´essays´´ in a form he called his ´´ventilated prose´´, and as always addressing the current global crisis and his predictions for the future. These essays, including ´´How Little I Know´´, ´´What I am Trying to Do´´, ´´Soft Revolution´´, and ´´Ethics´´, put the task of ushering in a new era of humanity in the context of ´´always starting with the universe.´´ In rare form, Fuller elegantly weaves the personal, the playful, the simple, and the profound. Utopia or Oblivion is a provocative blueprint for the future. This comprehensive volume is composed of essays derived from the lectures he gave all over the world during the 1960´s. Fuller´s thesis is that humanity - for the first time in its history - has the opportunity to create a world where the needs of 100% of humanity are met. This is Fuller in his prime, relaying his urgent message for earthians´ critical moment and presenting pioneering solutions which reflect his commitment to the potential of innovative design to create technology that does ´´more with less´´ and thereby improves human lives. ´´This is what man tends to call utopia. It´s a fairly small word, but inadequate to describe the extraordinary new freedom of man in a new relationship to universe - the alternative of which is oblivion.´´ Buckminster Fuller.
Your body is the most sophisticated thing in the Universe, and you should view it as your most treasured possession. But you did not arrive in this world with a user?s manual that tells you how your body works, particularly in relation to the food you put into it, and what goes wrong when you do things differently to how you have evolved.Two thirds of western society are either overweight or suffering from obesity. This is a potent source of unhappiness, extending in many to anxiety, stress and clinical depression. But there?s also a significantly increased risk of serious diseases such as cancer, heart attacks, strokes, Alzheimer?s disease, arthritis and diabetes. If you contract any of these there?s a very good chance you will die prematurely.Statistics show that what we are currently doing is clearly not working. And that?s because people simply don?t know or have been given the wrong information.The User?s Manual For Your Body provides in simple terms everything you need to know.

It has been said that ´´life is hard´´, but that is only because so many have forgotten their own birthright. It has been said that ´´we don´t come with user manuals´´, but that is only because so many have forgotten their own birthright. That birthright is within you, within your control. In fact, it is really the only thing in your control. Too many struggle because they are trying to control things that are not in their domain of control - external conditions, people, behaviors, things, circumstances, etc. When you remember who you really are, why you are here, the rules for the game of life - the immutable laws of the universe - then you are free to be, do, or have anything whatsoever you desire, and it is marvelous! This is a quick-start guide of sorts, because I get it - you´ve got way too much on your plate already to suck up a comprehensive edition of profound wisdom of the universe, no matter how helpful it may be to you. So this concise, or compact, edition of insight to the divine pleasure of remembering your birthright is designed to get you on the path of least resistance to all that you desire with as little effort or study as possible. It is essentially the CliffsNotes version of my own journey of self-discovery and self-mastery. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lavrieta Anderson.

Imagine that you are an Immortal, Omniscient, Omnipotent spiritual being. You have existed through all eternity, and cannot do otherwise. You are Eternally responsible for the existence of everything you can perceive in your Universe. Your every thought and whim materialize instantly, and disappear as soon as you stop. You know the outcome of every action you take before you make a move. Imagine how boring it might become? What price would you pay to be amused by someone other than yourself? What would you be willing to do to solve the problem of perpetual boredom? For an Immortal Being, mortality might be a coveted and convenient relief from eternal loneliness: no sensation, no surprises, no fun. What if a ´´Mortality Mechanic´´ could make your existence more exciting and less boring? Are you interested? After billions of years of testing and experimentation solutions to Immortality have been codified in the Mortality Mechanic´s Manual. You are the living proof that their job is done. 1.
