An original and stimulating adventure story for the mind, 'Nine Chains of the Moon' exhibits the unique daring of Buckminster Fuller's ideas which have led to the invention of his Geodesic dome and to other revolutionary results of his Dymaxion principles in design, architecture, and engineering. Fuller debunks (but always shows what is true) the science of geometry, our conception of good architecture, our approach to the study of economic problems, our sue of words and many other beliers most of us accept as the truth.
The title 'Nine Chains to the Moon', is meant to encourage and stimulate the broadest attitude toward thought. If, in imagination, all the people of the world were to stand upon one another's shoulders, they would make nine complete chains between the earth and the moon. And if it is not so far to the limits of the moon, then it is not so far to the limits of the universe - whatever, whenever, or wherever they may be. Hence we must adjust our thoughts, the author argues, only to the limits of the universe.
