Musterion works as an open-minded think tank. It addresses to each industry for which a refreshing and regular reorientation on creative, socio-economic and technological developments and trends is crucial. It is neither exclusively technical, nor specialised, but on the contrary wants to offer a high quality, broad, kaleidoscopical view to creators, marketeers, executives and general managers. Musterion wants to stimulate cross-disciplinary, integrated thinking and communication.
In its programme Musterion aspires to reach equilibrium trough variation. Speakers with completely different backgrounds focus on questions, tendencies and challenges in their specific work field, and relate these to aspects of general management and entrepreneurship. As a consequence Musterion makes no claim to be exhaustive. It raises questions and shows relations; one could consider it an interactive event-in-progress.
Signification of the word "Musterion"
(mu): First letter of the word '' (Musterion) that, in ancient Greek,
meant "mystery", "secret teaching, - ceremony, - practise".
The intrinsic meaning dates from the old Greek pagan culture (i.e. non religious),
indicating all concepts or occurrences for which the human mind failed to find an explanation.
Hence all persons (witches, sibyllae, oracles) who succeeded to be recognized for their faculty of foreseeing (prediction of the future), were automatically surrounded by an aura of mystery.
The letter '', sculpted above a doorway, indicated that by crossing the doorstep one entered the limits between the human and the supernatural.
In the same way, the letter '' engraved or represented on the cover of a book,
indicated that the subject matter could not be explained by human reason.
