Why Bucky Fuller’s Name Sometimes Appears Shortly After Mine
If adequate justice existed, I wouldn't choose to write with so many prepositional phrases and in so much third person. To quote Isaac Newton, "If I have seen further it is by standing on ye sholders of Giants." I'm privileged to have been given the opportunity to metaphorically stand on Bucky's and others' shoulders; in my personal case, Bucky being at the top of the list and near tying with Henry David Thoreau and many others. I add the caveat those Giants also metaphorically stood on other Giants' shoulders retrogressing millions of years if not more.
Most people I know were and continue to be given the same opportunity, but declined and continue to decline in favor of Bread and circuses. To again quote Isaac Newton, "I do not know what I may appear to the world, but to myself I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the sea-shore, and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me." And to quote Martin Luther in my personally chosen paraphrased translation, "Here I stand, I can do no other."
I 100% agree with none of the above or yet to be named -- not even you :-) . The percentage of whatever intelligent disagreement we have, even if my writings survive my physical body, is The Dialectic.
