Book Description

3 Mar 2014
Many books have been written about the life and work of Buckminster Fuller. He was unquestionably one of the most talented and brilliant people of modern times. However, no one until now has looked in depth at his metaphysical view of life. This book, Metaphysics of Buckminster Fuller, does that in a clear and interesting manner. Bucky, as he liked to be called, is known around the world for being responsible for over three hundred thousand geodesic domes that have been constructed. One of his inventions is an important part of the Space Laboratory. While he took great pride in this work and much more, he desired most of all to prove that the only realities in life are metaphysical and not physical. His metaphysical view of life allowed him to give all his energy to creating physical tools to make life easier without giving any thought to "making a living" or how to afford to do creative work. He believed that the metaphysical principles operating in Universe would provide anyone what was needed if they chose to give their talents totally to the welfare of humanity. He documented how well this worked for him, and those records are kept today in a special collection at Stanford University. He said repeatedly that the principles he used to succeed would work for anyone. The book tells the story of Bucky's early inability to be successful for himself and others. He was so filled with a sense of failure that he considered suicide at the age of 32. He had a special experience at that point that led him to commit "egocide" instead of suicide, and from that point on, his life took on a totally new energy and power. Because he knew that life is not a physical process, but rather a metaphysical one, he had much to share on such subjects as life and death, reality, evolution, what is life's purpose, and other basic life issues. He supports with hard-core physical evidence everything that he shares about these subjects. No one had a better intellectual grasp of our physical universe. No one has better translated that knowledge into metaphysical wisdom. Bucky spoke to over 400 Universities and Colleges around the world and received 47 honorary doctorate degrees. He had a great love for the young people he lectured to and felt that the hope for the future of humankind was in the hands of the young. He based this on their receptivity to the metaphysical insights he shared and their willingness to break free from measuring life by "what's in it for me." I think we are seeing this all over the world-young people are standing up to dictatorships and willing risking their lives for what they believe. The book deals with Bucky's strong conviction that power groups that measure life and goals with their brains and not their minds dominate the world. He makes it very clear that the brain and the mind are not the same. He spoke about this, with great authority, to a national convention of neurosurgeons and the book shares some of that talk. It was a talk, because this amazing man never prepared speeches. Bucky felt, as do many other thinkers of recent times, that the humanity is at a critical point. This book shares his clear insight about what makes our times so critical, and how can we turn it into a time of positive transformation. It is a book that is written in a manner that anyone can understand and profit. It is a book to be shared with as many people as possible for their individual understanding and to create a metaphysical energy wave to change the present direction of human evolution.

Product Description

About the Author

Phillip Pierson was well educated at St. George's School in Newport, RI and Haverford College in Haverford, PA. He went into the oil business with the thought of going into politics and being able to enter the world of governmental leadership. About the same age that Bucky Fuller had his life changing experience, Phil had his too. He realized that politics and government positions are not going to solve the major issues of life. He decided instead to go into the Unity ministry that emphasizes that change has to come from within each individual. That is, physical answers to everyday problems only offer temporary relief. Permanent solutions must come from a metaphysical awakening. This led him to the study and teaching of metaphysical principals, and a continuing exploration of the innovative breakthroughs that are taking place in science. With his wife, Dorothy, he conducted a very successful ministry, and a television program, "The Best Is Yet To Be," that was seen on the West Coast for 25 years. Once a month he interviewed scientists, doctors and professors who were finding metaphysical realities supported by their work in their professions. Among the hundreds he interviewed were people like, Dr. Larry Dossey, Dr. Norman Shealy, Dr. Deepak Chopra, Dr. Elmer Green, Dr. Gerald Jampolsky, Dr. Wayne Dyer, Dr. William Tiller and of course Buckminster Fuller. He also had many interviews with others who were not into science, but used metaphysics successfully in their work. One such interview was with Paul Wiggin at Stanford University. Paul was coach of the Stanford football team and formerly coach for the Kansas City Chiefs. All these people testified to the life changing reality of metaphysical principles. The author has written this book because of his conviction that Buckminster Fuller was perhaps the most enlightened man of our time. His metaphysical convictions need to be heard. Pierson plans to share more of Bucky's brilliant insights in another book he is currently writing. This book will also include the work of the great Jesuit Priest and Scientist, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin. Pierson believes "The best is yet to be!"

5.0 out of 5 stars Insightful and unique understanding of Bucky! 24 April 2014
By Katz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Pierson delves into an aspect of Buckminster Fuller that is rarely explored -- his spirituality. Most of us know the scientist-designer-architect side of BF, but this book looks at his views about God and the important lessons we can learn to make our lives easier. Don't let the title of this book scare you away! Using both primary and secondary sources, Pierson writes a book that is both fascinating and thought-provoking -- and far easier to read than BF's own books! If you want to know how one brilliant man balanced science with spirituality, read this book -- and tell your friends!

Wow....just wow. This gives you incredible insight into how Bucky Fuller thought and approached life. I couldn't put it down and ordered several of Bucky's personal books that he wrote. What a way to approach life. It's just so amazing and I thank him for all his contributions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awakened Reading for Every Bucky Fuller Fan or Crewmember On Spaceship Earth 23 Aug 2014
By L. S. Sieden - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A fairly obscure book that truly gets to the essence of Buckminster Fuller as a Bodhisattva Spiritual Being working on behalf of all life. Each page needs to be digested and contemplated as every word has the potential to open the reader to new heights of awareness. Brilliant.
4.0 out of 5 stars Tough Slogging! 15 Sep 2014
By Bibliophile - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Phillip M. Pierson, is the Commentator, also a Minister and a Metaphysician of some 50 years. Thank God, he could translate what Buckminister Fuller said! I'm in rare company as Eugene Fyodorov, a well-renowned scientist, was present at the same gathering of world scientists in Russia who said to Norman Cousins about Fuller's talk: "Absolutely magnificent! Tell me, what did he say?" Pierson explains in the Introduction, that there are in "Bucky's" quotations misspellings, long involved sentences; his own joining of multiple words together that are usually separate, as well as his own created vocabulary. What a challenge! Once one is beyond that, there is the man: genius in geometry, mathematics, invention, architecture, and others. He also possessed a deep humility choosing to be called "Bucky." This is often true of those who are true geniuses as they don't think that any ability of their's was cultivated by them, but rather a gift from God. I'm glad I stayed with it, grateful for the edifying remarks of Phillip Pierson, but can't help wishing Bucky would've spoken more simply. If the point of public speaking and/or writing is to get one's thoughts across to the greatest numbers of people, then it really needs to be readily understood.
