SELECTED IDEAS OF BUCKMINSTER FULLER
VECTOR EQUILIBRIUM
A SIXTY DEGREE COORDINATE SYSTEM

Fuller discovered that nature is using a sixty degree coordinate system (the tetrahedron), not ninety degrees (the cube)!
If humanity were to convert to nature's system, we would not need to use all kinds of irrational constants such as pi, etc.

All our measurements and calculations would be simplified

and come out in nice round numbers (tetrahedronal units).
