Tensegrity at the heart of form, stability, sustainability, energy, life.
Science, art, and philosophy work together as an organic whole from which
innovative solutions can emerge, driven by fundamental theoretical
investigation and study that is in turn driven by the inquisitive desire to create, to discover,
to invent in ways that transcend the self standing in front of the mirror.
The balance between form and no-form, between light and dark, pleroma and kenoma,
is the stage upon which the drama of physis is played, the act of aletheia, the dynamics of
Apollo and Dionysos, the veiled dances of Leela and Kali, We may perceive this as the interplay of
solitons, tensegritons, and ultimately manifolds, fields, particles, and living beings. We may describe
and refashion our world in simpler words, in complex equations and formulae, or in the stroke of a brush.
We may engineer complicated marvels and uncover arcane secrets but ultimately, the deep abstractions of
our universe, our "coat of many colors," opens forth into meaningfulness by the creation of living souls
who breathe and love and know themselves to be humble, simple, honorable and respectful of each other.
This is something we can never forget as we discover our science, craft our engineering and create our art.
Structure, substance, power, beauty, generated by chaodynamic Process.
Please take some time to explore not only the brief remarks on this site about projects, plans and visions,
but also the websites of close affiliates and the partners, sponsors, friends who have inspired and are making this
work possible. Also, please learn about those organizations and people who are endorsed and advocated by
IIS for their important and beneficial work. We all grow and find meaning by working together, symbiotically, synergetically,
as all of Nature demonstrates.
IIS recognizes the achievements, brilliance, and capability for new great strides forward in the arts and sciences
among some remarkable people and their organizations. If we have listed only a few, that is not intended to forget
or omit others. We do want to hear from you, and we want to work with you. We want to do our part, to the best
of our abilities, for the betterment of our world and our lives - not just in theory but in practice.
Thank you very much!
Of timely significance and thus at the center of our attention within the Institute is the Foundation we have created for taking abstract and theoretical ideas and transforming them - innovatively - creatively - sustainably - into Applied-Research Projects that are both educational and of practical real-world value to people:
Some of the Foundation's work is very timely to our national and international crises, both near-term, chronic, and long-term:
ASTrophysical Reconaissance Intervention and Countermeasures
Serving particularly: Planetary Safety and Defense (Astrophysical Objects and Planetary Collision)
EMP-event resilience network, providing emergency and sustainable post-EMP power and communications
Serving particularly: Power Infrastructure Resilience (EMP-focus)
Environmental build-up and particularly perma-frost release and distribution through precipitation in North America and Europe
Serving particularly: Environmental Defense (Critical Toxicity Levels and Irreversible Threshold-Crossings)
Planetary-wide, coordinated epidemiology and clinical infectious disease diagnostics and bioinformatics
http://cubit.tetradyn.com and http://tetradyn.com/h1n1-plus-healthcare/ (older site, outmoded, not current!)
Serving particularly: Global Biothreat Tracking and Response (Pandemic-focus)
An ongoing program in the fine arts with a true “STEMA” set of themes
Serving: All Institute and Foundation themes and topics
Publishing House and coordinative project for special educational and mini-conference events
