Application of the principles and specific configurations, patterns, ratios, etc of cosmometry for the benefit of life is of paramount importance. Most of our current human-contrived systems and technologies are founded on a grossly limited perception of the nature of the cosmos that is generally antiquated and oriented towards an overly mechanistic, specialized and Darwinian survival-based worldview. Buckminster Fuller proclaimed back in the 1970s that, through the application of the principles of Synergetics to the effective design of solutions to our major challenges, we had achieved the ability to "make the world work for 100% of humanity without ecological offense or the disadvantage of anyone." Forty-plus years later we're still grappling with those same issues, mostly ignoring (and suppressing, as the case may be) the work of Fuller and other pioneers who have embraced this same ideal and put it into practical application in a variety of ways — in technology, social architecture, whole-systems design processes, etc.
This section of the site will become a rich resource of such applications, both in theory and practice, and the underlying principles of cosmometry they're based upon. There is much research and presentation preparation to be done still. For now, here are a few links to examples of current applications that show ways in which applying the fundamental principles and patterns found in cosmometry can offer compelling and highly effective innovations.
|The 12-Around-1 Whole Systems Framework is a model of the primary areas of human concern that, when addressed as a whole, provide assurance that an integrity of all sectors will be accompished simultaneous to achieving integrity within each one individually.
The THRIVE Solutions Hub uses the 12 Sector model and torus flow communications processes to empower groups around the world to pursue whole-system, solutions-oriented activism.
