Doing Everything with Nothing

R. Buckminster Fuller famously predicted that technological advancement will allow us to do “more and more with less and less until eventually you can do everything with nothing.”

So how is that working out for us? Are we doing more and more with less and less? And when do we reach that end point?

Phi.l and Stephen examine how Fuller’s concept of ephemeralization is showing up in numerous current developments:

Getting the world to go solar using this one weird trick

Beating cancer the easy way

Cutting costs on going to Mars

Virtualizing everything

Redefining the human body as a computer programming project

Join us.
