Through his numerous books, several in-person events and even videotaping an interview with him once during the early 1970s, Bucky Fuller became one the prime mentors of my life.
He was a true visionary and one of the greatest of the 20th Century: he saw much of what would threaten us...and he understood how systems work. Perhaps his greatest gift to us is around the importance of "Trim Tabs"...and their role in personal & collective evolution.
I therefore love this article I came across (and am now excerpting in what follows) which highlights his most brilliant metaphor for transformation & growth:
Any total transformation is the product of a series of minute, purposeful shifts. That, after all, is the transformative power of habit.
No one has articulated the machinery of transformation more succinctly and powerfully than architect, inventor, and philosopher Buckminster Fuller (July 12, 1895–July 1, 1983) — a man of timeless wisdom and prescience so extraordinary that he envisioned online education, TED, and Pandora decades before these ideas became a reality.
Fuller, who served in the U.S. Navy during WWI, offers a brilliant naval metaphor for how we transmute the minute into the momentous in transformation and growth, both as individuals and as a society. In an altogether fantastic 1972 Playboy interview, Fuller introduces the “trim tab” — a small mechanism that helps stabilize an enormous ship or aircraft — which would become a central metaphor in his philosophy.
In response to the interviewer’s question about how we can live with “a sense of the individual’s impotence to affect events, to improve or even influence our own welfare, let alone that of society,” Fuller offers his magnificent metaphor:
Something hit me very hard once, thinking about what one little man could do. Think of the Queen Elizabeth [i.e., the premier ocean liner of that era] — the whole ship goes by and then comes the rudder. And there’s a tiny thing at the edge of the rudder called a trim tab. It’s a miniature rudder. Just moving the little trim tab builds a low pressure that pulls the rudder around. Takes almost no effort at all. So I said that the little individual can be a trim tab. Society thinks it’s going right by you, that it’s left you altogether. But if you’re doing dynamic things mentally, the fact is that you can just put your foot out like that and the whole big ship of state is going to go. So I said, “Call me Trim Tab.”
The truth is that you get the low pressure to do things, rather than getting on the other side and trying to push the bow of the ship around. And you build that low pressure by getting rid of a little nonsense, getting rid of things that don’t work and aren’t true until you start to get that trim-tab motion. It works every time. That’s the grand strategy you’re going for. So I’m positive that what you do with yourself, just the little things you do yourself, these are the things that count. To be a real trim tab, you’ve got to start with yourself, and soon you’ll feel that low pressure, and suddenly things begin to work in a beautiful way. Of course, they happen only when you’re dealing with really great integrity.
I am so grateful to be able to share some of Bucky's generous genius with you now....which feels so timely. My experience is that the Tachyon Energy Products are exceptionally supportive in this task he sets out of becoming "real trim tabs". Harmony, Coherence and Stillness are the needed elements for aligning with Life. The products cultivate these qualities within each of us who use them and thereby help bring us into the Flow of Life Itself...
P.S.: Rather than my pointing you to specific tools or categories, please explore the whole of my website...with all of its information and options...while holding the intention(s) for what you want support for: Tachyon Energy Products Website
P.S.: Her article on Bucky has made me an immediate fan of Maria Popova...who appears to be one of the numerous 30-something savants who we so desperately need now in our culture...as well her utterly impressive brainpickings.org website [Thanks Maria!]
