Tensegrity - The Geometry of Thinkinghttps://www.bfi.o...thinking
Tensegrity is one of Bucky Fuller's things. It's interesting to find it in molecular biology, but not particularly surprising.
discovered that Nature uses an architectural principle known as "tensegrity"
And the zealots (or should I say "kooks") weigh in.
Where is the evolutionary process that builds a Boeing 777 airplane via a tornado blowing thru a junkyard?
As for those who want to clamour for the evolutionary magic, consider this simple thing:When one sits or squats the muscles get compressed. Within those muscles are veins and arteries that still has to convey blood. Cells still have to carry on functioning etc.So instead of those muscles and cells suddenly dying off from starvation or stress, they simply "bounce" back and carry on working as per normal. Try that with your average bicycle, car, toaster, computer etc and see what happens.
