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. 


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.
