Tensegrity

According to Don Ingber, biologist at Harvard Medical School Children's Hospital, tensegrity, the shape-stabilizing structures made famous by Buckminster Fuller's geodesic dome that balances compression with tension and yields forces without breaking, is the guiding force of evolution, the architecture of life. Tensegrity gives cells their shape, and what Ingber's research has shown is that if you change the shape of the cell, you also change it's biochemistry and genetic expression.
