Fuller lived the last 56 years of his life as a personal experiment to determine and document what one individual could achieve that could not be accomplished by any government, corporation or organization. He was a man who lived and learned from direct experience. Here is an excerpt from A Fuller View.

"I look for what needs to be done and then try to work out how to do it best. After all, that's how Universe designs itself." - Buckminster Fuller
Doing what needed to be done while adhering to Nature’s principles was the strategy that Buckminster Fuller used to support the creation of his vision of “a world that works for everyone.” By employing trial and error experimentation and making lots of “mistakes” (i.e. learning experiences), he was able to achieve a great deal, and even today nearly thirty years after his death, his legacy continues to make a difference in the lives of millions of people.
If each of us would adopt even a tiny fraction of what Bucky learned and shared throughout the 88 years of his lifetime on Spaceship Earth, then our world would be a much better place to live. If we can simply begin to notice how Universe / Nature / God / Higher Power / Great Spirit / Allah designs itself and follow just a small portion of that design, we will markedly transform ourselves as individuals and as a global society.
May we all discover how we can most efficiently and joyfully make a difference with out lives just as Bucky Fuller was able to do.
