The missing leg

A one-legged or two-legged stool doesn’t work. A three-legged stool requires the stabilising component, the floor, to have it work.

As Buckminster Fuller demonstrated, the minimum system in Universe is the tetrahedron. 4 elements and 6 relationships.

When building a body of work for endurance, we must consider the four elements. 

For example, a wellness culture needs to have a purpose for being well. The tools to do so. Nuance and adaptation in response to the unique context of each individual. Education and support to ensure long-term maintenance. 

Miss any one of these elements and there is no stable system.
