“Let architects sing of aesthetics that bring Rich clients in hordes to their knees; Just give me a home, in a great circle dome Where stresses and strains are at ease.” ~R. Buckminster Fuller

Over the years we have heard the musings on left-brain thinking and right-brain thinking and equated it with the more specific and structured way a male maneuvers through life (hunter/scientist) as opposed to the way a female approaches life (gatherer/artist) in a more creative fashion.  Because of the dominantly patriarchal society we have been living in, science has been regarded more highly than art which is evident as school systems scrap art supplies, music and performance classes when monies become tight.  However, you can only hold this female energy in subjection for so long before she starts fighting back to claim her deserved position as an equal.  
The news is full of it.  Lately, you cannot listen to a report any given day without the calling out of yet another male perpetrator by a string of brave women finally given the courage to say ‘enough is enough.’  Women will not allow themselves to be considered objects any longer. (Kind of sounds like the 60’s, doesn’t it? Baby steps.)
Then there are fully rounded individuals who can combine science and art, like Richard Buckminister Fuller, (1895-1983), an American engineer, architect, inventor, and writer.  Living in a 38’ geodesic dome home designed by him was quite enjoyable but what was more enlightening was discovering just how well rounded this man was in uniting both science and art.  Fuller discovered and named the principle of tensegrity or tensional integrity which is the ability of the structure to stabilize through interplay of the forces of tension and compression based on the distribution and balancing of the mechanical constraints throughout the structure.  Good feng shui does not compare or compete.  Good feng shui complements and cooperates.    
During my recent trip to California, I was introduced to Shungite, a stone which has a very high carbon content.  This magical stone has

interesting healing qualities claimed originally by Peter the Great, Czar of Russia and recently proven by modern scientific studies.  I purchased the book, Shungite, by Regina Martino, a geobiologist and bioenergy expert specializing in stones and crystals.  
She lives in Paris, France. The healing activities of this stone were discovered in Shun’ga Russia.  Now Paris has opened up medical spas using this mineral.  The unique property of this black and silvery stone is contained in its large spheroidal molecule consisting of a hollow cage of atoms and shaped like a soccer ball or ‘geodesic dome’ which has been named a Fullerene, or buckyball after Buckminister himself.
My interest in including this amazing gem in my environment has to do with its ability to protect, heal and detoxify.  
Our modern lifestyle makes it impossible to live in an environment where we are not constantly bombarded by electromagnetic waves, that is, unless you do not carry a cell phone or come in contact with a computer, microwave or Wi-Fi. I believe this modern technology can wreck havoc on the biological system of humans, plants and animals and some are more sensitive to it than others.  Sleepless nights may be contributed to it.  Irritability may be contributed to it.  Illnesses may be contributed to it.  
The rise of antidepressant usage in our country is staggering. I may not be able to change the tech habits of modern society, but as for me and my house, adding Shungite, composed of Fullerenes, may be a solution to this issue.  It may balance the space bio-energetically to reduce the harmful effects causing stress and strain.   
What reduces stress and strain?  Integrity, balance and cooperation.  Thank you, Bucky.  xo mo
