In this quote, Buckminster Fuller is further expanding on his belief that earning a conventional living should not be seen as the primary purpose or “true business” of people’s lives. He seems to be suggesting that people would be better served by “going back to school” – not necessarily a traditional school, but a state of open-minded learning and contemplation.

Fuller felt people’s true interests and passions often get sidelined once they feel the pressure to choose a career path and earn money. The quote advocates for prioritizing thinking freely and exploring one’s interests, as one did “before somebody came along” insisting they had to work for a living.

Overall, Fuller appears to be promoting lifelong learning, curiosity and following one’s natural inclinations above societal or economic pressures to earn a wage.
