Facebook Tensegrity


In Buckminster Fullerian speak, Facebook Tensegrity would refer to the "structural principle based on the use of isolated components in compression inside a net of continuous tension." 





In other words, Facebook members sign in separately from one another and the prestressed tensioned members delineate the system spatially. 



Concept


Facebook Tensegrity structures are based on a combination of a few simple design patterns:

  • signing-up members in pure compression or pure tension
  • preloaded or tensional prestress (forms to fill out), which keeps the system rigid in tension
  • mechanical stability, which allows members to "friend" each other, remaining in tension/compression as stress on the structure increases (Facebook ads)



      Because of these patterns, no Facebook member actually experiences a real interface with other users (i.e., bending moment), but instead harnesses aether (aether is a quantum 2-spin rotating magnetic field that encapsulates primary angular momentum and via tensegrity forms matter with resulting quantum 1/2 spin) in a type of "like" bonding moment. 



      This produces exceptionally impersonal and rigid structures for their mass marketing campaigns and for the cross-selling software ad-ons from their connectivity platform. 



      The Castaneadian intent behind Facebook's Tensegrity is to allow users a modern *fluid and energetic way of being and communicating - the path with heart - that don Juan Matus taught his students. 




      *Disclaimer: For those of you who are questioning the contradiction between "impersonal" and "fluid," it is the difference between the altruistic intent and the commercial realization.
