Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 1 to 500
~ Idea 317 ~ 23 May 1995
Since an idea often gives birth to another, it was quite natural that in the same speech I proposed the transformation of NATO, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, into NACOM, the North Atlantic Community, according to the new paradigm that the military "culture" of this planet must be replaced by a culture of peace. Similarly SEATO should be replaced by SEACOM.
It was wonderful to receive the following letter from a reader:
"I enjoyed your book* immensely. I read every word, each phrase avidly, slowly so as to savor all nuances unfolding in the narrative. This is to confess that I was held captive to your book the moment I started reading it. From the gentle, delicate anecdote about "Grethel" to that stirring testament of love, truth and honesty that is the final "Epilogue", it was just one beautiful, moving exciting reading experience!
I found myself reading the last pages of the book `out loud', there on my front terrace, for all to hear! My good, understanding neighbors interpreted this sudden euphoric outburst to mean that I had `turned the corner', that final recovery was in sight, that I was in fact, cured. And such I felt, indeed, from that time on. The doctor pronounced me fit for work and released me not too long afterward.
Now that is proof positive that your good book did much to speed my complete recovery.
Thank you, Mr. Muller, for writing the book.
Thank you, dear God, for having me run into you that fateful day."
