We traverse through the cold to reach the last sanatorium up in the heights, where Thomas Mann wrote Tristan . During the journey, an unexpected event suddenly halts the train. This is not purely hazardous. A roll of the dice will never abolish chance . But we will be safe and sound.
It has all been foreseen, evaluated, predicted, anticipated… security and safeness considered.
The train is a metaphor  or the impetus to reach an illusory point that can never be met. The artefact is in the way.
Now you are on the bandwagon. As the curve reaches closer to its fate a rite of passage is lived over and over again. The phase change of water chemistry, sublimation. Through this experiment our participants will reunite in the good death, an escape or weaning .
In other lands and times it would have been an object of superstitious reverence or dread. The intrusion of an impure element then results in the instant-freezing of the water. It is something completely irrational. Some have themselves brought to the tops of mountains with trains, cable cars and even helicopters.
It is often thought that this is to appreciate a sublime, untameable nature, since it has been already the theme of many a sublime Romantic painting or poem.
But in fact most Alpine mountain tops are as artificial as a Dutch polder, not just with the cross on top of it, but with mines dug underneath, avalanche protection, restaurants, hotels, ski slopes, ski lifts, half pipes for snowboarders, artificial lakes to produce artificial snow, a view on the urbanized valley below, and in summer cows not for the production of milk and meat but for maintenance.

They hardly have a choice. It has to go fast. Even the sky is filled with gliders and para gliders, enjoying the turbulence along the slopes. An aspect of danger, and at least a flirt with a latent death wish should be involved to feel alive, as a faint memory of older myths.
Innsbruck, the city where I live, is one of the innovation centres of Alpine sports. From the Hungerburg a cable car takes people further up to the North Park with the Seegrube and the Hafelekar, just left of which we find a mountain peak called Frau Hitt.The Chorizo Syndrome [anarchist – robotic controversy] incarnations of Thoreau (1) and Proudhon (2), one facing his political isolation to re-discover a monist (3) relationship, the other promoting the success of a bottom up urban social contract (4) in which they have both participated in the past, sharing their protest, illusions and utopian ideals on the barricade.
