Begin Again



Could I begin again, 
as if this is the first day?
Could God the Omnipotent
redo the creation -
and again say
"Let there be light"?

Buckminster Fuller - The Final Message


Buckminster Fuller was one of the most inventive and socially aware engineers of the 20th century. For him "doing more with less" was a human value as well as engineering value. This is the soundtrack of an Earthstar Radio production, just weeks before Buckminster Fuller passed away on July 1st, 1983 at the age of 87. In his last days he was focused on integrity. I had the honor of doing the interview.

Down loadable audio formats.

Audio produced and recorded by Shari Morgan and Roger Kotila of EarthStar Radio. Based on interview by Americ Azevedo with Buckminster Fuller. Photo of from Photoshop 5.5 Artistry by Barry Haynes and Wendy Crumpler, New Riders Publishing

Leucippus - Father of Atomism


Leucippus (fl. 450 B.C.) Greek philosopher, founder of Atomistic Theory


The sum of things is unlimited, and they all change into one another. The All includes the empty as well as the full. The worlds are formed when atoms fall into the void and are entangled with one another; and from their motion as they increase in bulk, arises the substance of the stars.*

* Summary of Leucippus' theory by Diogenes Laertius as found in The Great Thoughts compiled by George Seldes.
