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!"
