Welcome to "Conversations with Bucky"!

  "I thought that Synergetics might allow humanity at large to discover what its options really are"

       R. Buckminster Fuller to E.J  Applewhite, Cosmic Fishing 1977


In order to facilitate this discovery, I am uploading 42 hours of Bucky's "Everything I Know" sessions recorded in Philly in 1975. These videos are available to all human beings online or by download upon request (see below), to use for the betterment of mankind. Everyone is invited to participate in the following ways: 


  • View the tapes online
  • Comment on the Video
  • Participate in a peer group dialogue about each of the tapes via this Wiki Web site
  • Download the videos by sending a request to acoles@aol.com.  Specify the tape # and it will be sent to you via e-mail. 
  • Edit the videos to produce the most effective means of communicating "Everything Bucky Knows" to the greatest number of people. The links to Best of Bucky  and Conversations With Bucky are my attempts.  


Best of Bucky - Is my compilation of 2 to 10 minute video segments of RBF on the topics of Love, Death, Vanity, Integrity, The Eccentricity of Life, Only the Impossible Happens and The Lord's Prayer.  View these videos, engage in a conversation on this wiki site, add new videos and expand the Best of Bucky.


Conversations With Bucky. The videos on this page are my attempt to generate a dialogue between an 11-year-old and Bucky, covering various topics such as: Precession, Education, and the JitterBug model. View these videos, engage in a conversation on this wiki site, add new videos and expand the "Conversations With Bucky".

Thank you *so* much for making these available again! I linked to them for many years from my blog, but as I'm sure you know they disappeared from the Web for several years. Here's my new blog entry from today, September 13th, 2009: http://hisnibs.blogspot.com/.

first thanks for posting. i notice however that 1c and 2a link to the same video one mis posted as 2a, in effect 2a is skipped. can you repost 2a with the "real" 2a? btw its not the one that starts with a pic of einstein and bucky sayiing he was only concerned with the physical or some such. not to nitpic but the understanding of the terms is vital to the rest of the lectures. again thanks! this is a treasure.
