It is easier to find beauty in regularity than in disorder; for the latter repulses beauty, and only by a singular power, a rare endowment of nature, can we unite them. So regularity should be given to beginners as their model. It is the privilege of the masters alone to set themselves another.

In order to change an existing paradigm you do not struggle to try and change the problematic model. You create a new model and make the old one obsolete.

R Buckminster Fuller Richard Buckminster "Bucky" Fuller (/ˈfʊlər/; July 12, 1895 - July 1, 1983) was an American architect, systems theorist, author, designer, inventor, and futurist.

Fuller published more than 30 books, inventing and popularizing terms such as "Spaceship Earth", ephemeralization, and synergetic. He also developed numerous inventions, mainly architectural designs, including the widely known geodesic dome. Carbon molecules known as fullerenes were later named by scientists for their resemblance to geodesic spheres.

[T]he earth does not belong to man; man belongs to the earth. This we know. All things are connected like the blood which unites one family. All things are connected. Whatever befalls the earth befalls the sons of the earth. Man did not weave the web of life; he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.

There is a kind of globe you can buy for hour home or office. With the light inside turned off you see the crazy-quilt pattern of the world's political areas. Turn the light on and there appears a glowing map of the natural Earth -- the bottoms of oceans and seas, the tops of mountains and plains, deserts and jungles, glaciers and volcanoes.
This map shows no city limits, no county or state lines, no national borders. The only things that seems ...

Science is only about 300 years old ... the scientific perspective that you and I are both steeped in.

The significance of RANKIN was in its mere existence, for it reflected a political sophistication no less intense than that of the English, and it indicated the political importance that the Americans attached to the possession of German soil rather than the Balkans. If the United States refused to go along with the British plans for a Balkan strategy after OVERLORD it was not because it was unconcerned about the alleged danger of Bolshevism, bu...

Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein (14 March 1879 - 18 April 1955) was a German-born theoretical physicist who developed the theory of general relativity, effecting a revolution in physics. For this achievement, Einstein is often regarded as the father of modern physics and one of the most prolific intellects in human history. He received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his services to theoretical physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect". The latter was pivotal in establishing quantum theory within physics. Near the beginning of his career, Einstein thought that Newtonian mechanics was no longer enough to reconcile the laws of classical mechanics with the laws of the electromagnetic field. This led to the development of his special theory of relativity. He realized, however, that the principle of relativity could also be extended to gravitational fields, and with his subsequent theory of gravitation in 1916, he published a paper on the general theory of relativity. He continued to deal with problems of statistical mechanics and quantum theory, which led to his explanations of particle theory and the motion of molecules. He also investigated the thermal properties of light which laid the foundation of the photon theory of light. In 1917, Einstein applied the general theory of relativity to model the structure of the universe as a whole.
