Richard Buckminster "Bucky" Fuller (July 12, 1895 – July 1, 1983) was an visionary, designer, architect, and inventor. His most notable contributions are the Geodesic Dome and the World Game, both employing the concept of Synergetics which he explored and developed through much of his life. His life work led towards creating a world wide resource administrative system which could provide billionaire wealth for all global citizens, or "complete success for all without disadvantaging any".
"R. Buckminster Fuller was a pioneer of Synergic Science — the science of whole systems, he considered the relationships between the parts that make up a system. He discovered that it is how these parts relate with one another that will absolutely determine the success of the whole system." (http://www.synearth.net/Restricted-Confidential/OT.pdf)
