This blog is for anything I find interesting. I have many interests: chemistry, math, philosophy, poetry, libertarianism, etc. I have some hero's who I hope to find on tumblr more often who include: Buckminster Fuller, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, Carl Jung, Marshall Mcluhan, Kurt Godel, John Muir and more. Any questions about anything, just ask.
The link below is to my other blog, it's less serious, and is for posting things that wouldn't fit on this one. It's more of an indulgence blog, so check it out.

Thinking of Bucky- Just listened to another amazing 99% Invisible podcast on Buckminster Fuller and a dome he has in Woods Hole (who knew?). More here, but it led me to remember my favorite Bucky creation: the dymaxion maps! In searching for different ways to understand our lovely planet, Buckminster Fuller faceted it’s shape, not unlike his geodesic domes, and unfolded the pieces into new, truthful, yet different maps. The result is amazing. I love ‘one continent’ and ‘one ocean,’ the two maps over on the left (the big map is also one continent). 

The inspirational audio for the curious, thank you 99% Invisible.
