In my conversations with John we tend to use Buckminster Fuller's term
but the term seems a bit...ephemeral.

        I see your point Damien. I was merely using the acronym in the
same manner as John Smart (I like how he thinks). However the concept
and the acronym are useful. I say we wrest it a way from them. The new
acronym will be STEM compression.

                Ekk. This acronym is toxic, being (I hope) badly
misleading in any
                context advocated on this list:
                Presumably you're adopting John Smart's use of the term,
and not the
                name of the punk band, but I really hope it can be
quietly ushered
                out of existence. Scientology terminology is *not* a
good look in
                this context (or indeed in any).
