Buckminster Fuller nsIn existographies, Richard Buckminster Fuller (1895-1983) (IQ:#|#) [RGM:516|1,500+] (CR:17) was an American architect and philosopher noted, in human thermodynamics, for his 1944 to 1983 writings on a loose mixture of synergy, entropy, evolution, and god.

Breakdown
In 1927, Fuller, following the loss of his job and the death (cessation) of his four year old daughter, entered into a depressional suicide state, out of which he emerged with the mission to “search for the principles governing the universe and help advance the evolution of humanity in accordance with them”.

Overview
In 1944, Fuller, introduced his energy slave concept.

In 1975, Fuller introduced a metaphorical theory of synergetics, where he loosely equated synergy to negentropy, and for writing about evolution as an eddy in the second law of thermodynamics; the logic of which he discusses fully in his 1976 book And it Came to Pass—Not to Stay. [1]

Fuller was writing on entropy and the second law, citing C. P. Snow, as early as 1969, in what seems to be theorizing on issue of sustainability of humans in the universe. [2]

In 1979, Fuller was given a copy of his old Harvard classmate William Sidis' undiscovered 1920 book The Animate and the Inanimate, which presents a entropy-reversal theory of life, and after reading it dispatched a letter of to Scientific American, proclaiming its value. [4]

In 1983, Fuller published Humans in Universe, which is filled with passages essentially amounting to a lot of nonsensical gibberish; although the idea of equating God to entropy or anti-entropy is not a new one. [3]

His writings on the energy and entropy seemed often to be presented in a poetic style, often found mixed with religious thermodynamics speculations.

The following are noted quotes:
-
“I live on earth at present, and I don’t know what I am. I know that I am not a category. I am not a thing — a noun. I seem to be a verb, an evolutionary process – an integral function of the universe.”
— Buckminster Fuller (1970), I Seem to Be a Verb [5]
-
“In order to change an existing paradigm you do not struggle to try and change the problematic model. Rather, create a new model that makes the old one obsolete.”
— Buckminster Fuller (c.1970) (Ѻ)

“Everyone is born a genius, but the process of living de-geniuses them.”
— Buckminster Fuller (c.1970) (Ѻ)

“We should 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.”
— Buckminster Fuller (c.1970) (Ѻ)
