Our study so far has primarily examined the conceptual foundation of synergetics. Except for occasional reference to volume and symmetry, the emphasis has been on numbers of elements rather than on shape. It’s now time to look at the rest of the picture. Fuller’s appreciation of the MIT definition of mathematics (“ the science of structure and pattern in general”) led him to ponder the appropriate tools and methods. “Science” is a systematic endeavor, requiring exact procedures for its description of structure and pattern.
