Nature appears to rely on one core recurring pattern to evolve life at every scale – the torus. It is a donut shaped energy vortex that you can see everywhere from atoms to galaxies and beyond. The torus is nature’s way of creating and sustaining life and it can serve as a template for sustainability. Knowledge of the pattern is already advancing fan and propeller technologies, powering clean, “new energy” devices, informing non-violent self defense, and helping us better understand the nature of the “unified field.” The underlying structure of the torus is the Vector Equilibrium, or “VE.” It is the blueprint by which nature forms energy into matter. Buckminster Fuller, one of the 20th Century’s most prolific inventors, coined the term Vector Equilibrium. He named it this because the “VE” is the only geometric form where all forces are equal and balanced. The energy lines (vectors) are of equal length and strength. They represent the energy of attraction and repulsion, like you can feel with a magnet. **Note: Any model that has a 'FIRST TO TRY' icon is in the experimental printing stage. This means that ordering this model will send it into the "FIRST" test for 3D printing for your chosen material. There can be very rare instances where the model must be updated in order to complete the 3D printing process. If this is the case, you will be notified that your order was canceled and must be placed again. This occurs to allow you to re-approve the updated version of the chosen model before being charged for anything.**
