If you begin to suspect that the concepts hiding behind Fuller’s intimidating terminology are often easier to understand than their titles, you will soon find that “ vector equilibrium” is no exception. “The vector equilibrium is an omnidirectional equilibrium of forces in which the magnitude of its explosive potentials is exactly matched by the strength of its external cohering bonds” (430.03). If Fuller’s description doesn’t make it crystal clear, read on! The VE, as it is usually called, is truly the cornerstone of synergetics.
