SELECTED IDEAS OF BUCKMINSTER FULLER
VECTOR EQUILIBRIUM: A PROPOSED ULTRA-MICRO COMPUTER
PARALLEL CPU'S SURROUNDED BY DISTRIBUTED MEMORY MODULES

R. Buckminster Fuller proposed a design for the ultimate (smallest & fastest) micro computer.

A low voltage ac carrier of a given frequency (light?) fed to the central atom (radio transmitter antenna) of a cluster of identical atoms (diamond?) will generate a spherical wave of energy which will travel outward until it resonates with the layer of atoms corresponding to the input frequency.

A modulating frequency may then be tuned to individual sets of atoms in that layer.

Variations of the very low ac current will permit addressing four different sets of electrons per atom.
Variations of voltage would represent zeros & ones.
The same procedure applied to the poles of that cluster of atoms would extract any stored energy (information).

The number of atoms per shell may be calculated by using the formula:

n = 10 (frequency squared) + 2
A flattened-out (unfolded) vector equilibrium or regular tetrahedron may be used to map each shell (layer) of atoms.
