Tensegrity: "the property of skeleton structures that employ continuous tension members and discontinuous compression members in such a way that each member operates with the maximum efficiency and economy."
Buckminster Fuller explains it all for us:
"The universe must be a comprehensively finite integrity, permitting only a locally-islanded infinitude of observer-considered-and-regenerated differentiating discovery."
Wait, there's more. Let's hear what lovable fraud-guru Carlos Castaneda has to say:
The observations of those shamans upon practicing the art of dreaming were a mixture of reason and seeing energy directly as it flows in the universe. They realized that at its habitual position, the assemblage point is the spot where converges a given, minuscule portion of the energy filaments that make up the universe, but if the assemblage point changes location, within the luminous egg, a different minuscule portion of energy fields converges on it, giving as a result a new inflow of sensory data: energy fields different from the habitual ones are turned into sensory data, and those different energy fields are interpreted as a different world.
The art of dreaming became for those shamans their most absorbing practice.
Their efforts culminated in the discovery and development of a great number of such movements, which they called magical passes.
They decided, therefore, to rescue the magical passes from their obscure state. They created in this fashion, Tensegrity, a most appropriate name because it is a mixture of two terms: tension and integrity; terms which connote the two driving forces of the magical passes.
