Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Synergetic uses ___ vectorial angles and tetrahedral systems.

2. Like Euler, Bucky Fuller decomposed the Universe and all phenomena into angles and ___?

Synergetics equates and utilizes Heisenberg's Indeterminism and its mensuration with the omni-symmetry of wavilinear phenomena, and then fuses it into the conceptual-metaphysical of the subjective-absolute equilibria.
3. The Universe is described as a closed-system of omni-interacting, precessionally transforming, complementary-transacting, and self-regenerating system ... or simply as a _____?

4. What mathematical-construct does Bucky Fuller decompose the Universe into?

The system of space is composed of concave and convex series of tetrahedra. 'Many sideness'...a spheric experience of ultrhigh frequencies, omnidirectional, within finite-closed areas.
5. Synergetics explains events as __-vectored wavelengths.

6. What does Fuller refer to the array of equilateral triangles, arranged in a 4-dimensional matrix with 60 degree angles?

7. According to Bucky Fuller, all polygons and phenomena are reducible to what basic-shape?

8. What shape is described as: a rhombic dodecahedral, symmetrically recurrent through the Isotropic-vector matrix, and tangential to the 12 omni-symmetrical vertices?

9. How does Fuller describe a 'point' in space?

10. What is not one of the 3 omni-symmetric, omni-triangulated, and least-effort systems found in nature?

11. What term is described as a : self-stabilizing energy-event complex?

Here, he emphasizes angular invariability and regenerative within the system.
12. Of Euclid's early 5 Hypotheses, which one is the parallel conjecture, that has been found irrelevant in the higher dimensions of space?

13. In Synergetic-space, how is a 'Line' defined?

14. What is being defined here: 'Omni-embracing, collecting, precessional, generating-circumferential, surface-folding wave.'?

15. What type of structure does the 'Geodesic Dome', made famous by Bucky Fuller, exemplify?

16. According to Synergists, all time is sequential, complementary, and orderly disequilibrious intertransformations of space-nothingness to time somethingness, and vice versa. So, ' The only instanstaneity is ___'?

17. What are the two types of acceleration.. ____ and _____?

18. Quite often, Synergetics uses the principle of angular topology developed by Descartes. If you take a tetrahedron and add up the surface angles, how many degrees will you get in total

A tetrahedron is a four-sided, three-dimensional shape. Descartes developed a general rule for any polyhedron: the sum of the surface angles is equal to 720 degrees subtracted from 360 degrees times the number of vertices. Fuller referred to this 720-degree difference as "takeout."
19. According to Synergy, 'solids' exist in space.

All planes have spaces between them, no continuum is without 'holes'.
20. The _______ is a nonsimultaneously potential vector equilibrium?

21. Which shape contains the most volume with the least surface area?

22. What shape does the energy of Planck's constant take on, according to Bucky Fuller?

23. How does a tree support horizontally tons of heavy branches? Bucky Fuller explain this phenomena by employing which term?

The crystalline tensions of cell sacs are hydraulically filled to distribute the compression and tension loads throughout the whole structure. The cells then become noncompressible.
24. Fuller makes the interesting connection of Euler's geometry with vertices to the mass-attraction of gases, with which physicist?
