Welcome to 21st Century GENEVA,
home of ITU, WWW, SELEX and Global Ivory Tower,

Good Offices circle of Elder Statesmen,

and fountain head for Citizens' revival.

This venture onto new age horizons begins with an annotated query on monotheism. Based on what is known today, Netizens like you may thus help advance our all related insights. Gradually, the other baskets will be filled with stories (not all bad) from Swiss bank customers, diplomats, scholars and alert Netizens as well as data from our own archives. For some, this site's runner is the PILLORY, the NETIZEN DEBT EXCHANGE, an outgrowth of 30 years of experiences with Swiss financial institutions which was prompted not least by holocaust victim claims. It provides the first Internet exchange of private and state (e.g. old Russian) debts with enhanced compensation opportunities.
These multi-facet efforts have been funded and sponsored by the editor's family and friends and by volontary contributions, with the editor bearing sole responsibility for eventual errors and omissions - and the manifold debts thus incurred. If you are in a position to do so and would like to help secure this venture and strengthen its further development, you are invited to make your contribution directly to the editor. In the event, please indicate by e-mail your wish for a receipt, to be mentioned in, or to be taken off the occasionally up-dated public list of Maecenas' successors & Iconoclast 's friends or the honor roll of privacy guardians.
In a global ivory tower worth its name, nobody has a monopoly for good ideas. So you are most welcome to share in the evolution of these netbooks (which are to be up-dated commensurably). Regardless of whether your information questions or supports the ideasand material thus presented, please send in your comments, suggestions and related material by e-mail, i.e. to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by way of the snail mail (CORUM, box 2580, 1211 Geneva 2, Switzerland). And even if you don't want to get your name associated with this novel venture to new horizons (1), please contact the editor.
Arguably, English, French and German will be Europe's three equal official languages in the 21st Century. Eventually, at least the commentaries presented on this site will be available in these three languages (on the Millennium computer bug Y2K, automatic, i.e. computer-produced translations are available in Italian, Portugese and Spanish - its quite instructive to see what artificial intelligence is presently capable of in this domaine; see also: SELEX).Initially, texts and communications will mostly be in English. Reflecting the general approach of contributions included on this site, its logo (9 stars at the top) symbolizes an ancient puzzle (2) the solution to which can be found only if one avoids worn-out tracks and dares to break out of the puzzle's apparent confines, i.e. the square made up of 9 stars. It would be unfairto give you the solution even before you had a chance to try your own hand and mind on this problem. For it would deprive you of what appears to be the intellectual equivalent of having walked barefoot and unharmed over burning charcoals. In the event, click here and enter the world of similarly intriguing and mind-opening puzzles.

(1) perhaps because you share the wisdom reflected in President Reagan's desk inscription:
"There is no limit where a man can go if he is prepared not to take credit for it!"

Here we are developing comprehensive, hyperlinked
and thus easy-to-use indexes covering the entire Global
Ivory Tower site. It is a lot of work. If it is to be user-friendly,
generally useful and reasonably complete, it
will take some time, so please bear with us - and come back also to see
how we handled your and others' greatly appreciated suggestions for improvements
and additions. You should be able to access this site on the major
search engines also by way of the keywords used in either the following
of persons or the subject
index which includes historical persons. We regret the
inconvenience of not yet or no longer working links and would appreciate
your notifying us of such bugs.
