# Defining Synergy Found on the 3 x 3 Number Square

Defining Synergy Found on the 3 x 3 Number Square using the logic of R. Buckminster Fuller.  Basically, synergy means being unable to predict the behavior of any system by looking at its individual parts. In Synergetics, section 109.01 Fuller states: “All alloys are synergetic.” He explains how chrome-nickel-steel has a far greater combined tensile strength than the combined muscle of all its individual metals. That is what makes the jet engine stable for high speed travel. Otherwise, the engine would melt.

### Defining Synergy by the 3 x 3 Number Square

• Add the numbers around the central 5 (I term these numbers p1 which stands for perimeter one). 4 + 9 + 2 + 7 + 6 + 1 + 8 + 3 = 40. That is the single and obvious view. Let’s continue.
• Add numbers two at the time overlapping the numbers. I call this p-2. This stands for perimeter two: 49 + 92 + 27 + 76 + 61 + 18 + 83 + 34 = 440.
•  Now take the numbers three at the time. Overlap the third with the first number. I call this p-3. This stands for perimeter three.  492 + 276 + 618 +  834 = 2,220.Then (p-1)   is 40 + (P-2)  is 440 + ( P-3) 2,220  = 2700. Finally, Divide this 2700 total of p1 + p2 + p3 by/ p3(2220)  or 40 + 440 + 2220/2220 = 1.2162…’  which is virtually one Egyptian remen. The remen is 1.2165 feet.  By synergy and synergy alone we can find the basis of all ancient measure:  A remen = 14.6 inches was in fact, the fundamental measure.   (12 x 1.2165).  The inch is of ancient origin. Cubic inches of gold were standard weights. Samples exist from Greece and Egypt.  They are in the British Museum.

What is Fuller’s definition of synergy? Basically, you cannot predict the behavior of any system by looking at its individual parts. In Synergetics, section 109.01 Fuller states: “All alloys are synergetic.” He explains how chrome-nickel-steel has a far greater combined tensile strength than the combined muscle of all its individual metals. That is what makes the jet engine stable for high speed travel. Otherwise, the engine would melt. We can easily see how the 3 x 3 number square fits into this definition. This marvel will spearhead our new Golden Age of peace and plenty.
