The project on Folke Mellvig, which was outlined some time ago, has taken a sudden and surprising turn and are now moving in a more eonatic direction. The main aim is now to find out who the Hero Captain Hillman is (he is namely still alive through the works of late Mr Mellvig). This research will be carried through by an extensive reading of Mellvig's works and when this first phase in the project is finished, whether it takes a month or 46 281 years, Captain Hillman will be presented to the ladonian people, through different statements he will be doing (channeled by the project group). At this time Hillman will search for citizenship in Ladonia (in fact he could be the first fictive citizen of Ladonia if this application is accepted). What will then happen? Is the project accomplished then? Hardly! Then there are new goals. What about Ladonias first fictive Minister? Or:
"Ladonia is the first country on the planet Earth that has installed a fictive President. It is told that his favorite pet is an old black sheep with bad vision."
What about "Kullamannen then (previously translated into english with "The Man of Kullen")?
The right translation should of course be: Hill man.....Hillman. This closes the circle.
