Anyone who didn't get a chance to enjoy a lecture by futurist thinker R. Buckminster Fuller before his 1983 death can get a zesty morsel of the man at the Lyceum Space. In San Diego Repertory Theatre's "R. Buckminster Fuller: The History (and Mystery) of the Universe," Ron Campbell offers a tour de force re-creation of a Fuller talk, one that demonstrates the man's range--physical, metaphysical, intellectual, eclectic, challenging and largely entertaining. The script, adapted and directed by D.

Among the many predictions made by R. Buckminster Fuller during his career was the belief that political parties would become extinct by the year 2000. More hopeful than naive, Fuller was the kind of philosopher who was clearly unafraid of making bold and potentially foolish proclamations. It's a shame more of his intrepid spirit doesn't find its way into "R. Buckminster Fuller: The History (and Mystery) of the Universe," currently at the Rubicon Theatre in Ventura.

In your article "Hayden on Earth" (Oct. 16), Assemblyman and Santa Monica City College teacher Tom Hayden said that nature has rights and that he wants to change the way people think about God and Earth "so that environmental preservation becomes a matter of spiritual urgency." The article cited the New Age adherents' rejection of God's place as an overseer of Earth and substituting the Gaia theory in which Mother Earth is seen "as a single unit that regulates the environment." In my opinion, an intelligent and all-knowing God planned and caused the creation and forming of Earth that in some ways can be viewed (as R. Buckminster Fuller might say)

Carbon has previously been known to exist in two forms: diamond and graphite. In the new form, 60 carbon atoms are joined together in a 20-sided sphere that has the exact shape of a soccer ball. When the molecules were first detected indirectly five years ago, researchers named the compound buckminsterfullerene in honor of the late R.

Given the high ratio of academics on the Internet, discussions of anything art-related on the mailing lists and Usenet groups generally supply some fine intellectual banter. This theory holds true for the architecture groups as well. Within the "Art and Architecture" mailing list you'll find a discussion dedicated to basic and applied design.
