: : Sir Nemolom, as I remember, your primary goal with Cyber-towers was that it could raise itself up if it falls down. I have a nice idea, which could be added to your Cyber-tower scetch: Anti-gravitation pillows. There should be totally 5 of them. One, very strong, will be placed at the bottom of the tower to keep it from disturbing the soil beneath it. Four would be placed in the sides of the tower to keep it upright and to be invoked with greater strength if the tower sould come to a fall.

: Dear Nemo, (and all others interested).
: Yes, I hope it stays alive. I´ve been working on scetches of various types of towers, fitted for the various climates and terrains on earth (and elsewhere),
: but with the introduction of the anti-grav pills it may seem wiser to concentrate on one, allround version. Where can one get those pills?
: If we made some kind of "standard tower", we could make it some kind of module type, making it easier to connect towers together (for whatever reason one should wish to do that).
: My biggest headache at the time is what design we should use. Should we follow the style of Lars Vilks´ Arx, Nimis and Wothan´s tower, or could we do it in another fashion?
: What do you think?

I know that these anti-gravitation pillows have already been invented. They are, among other places, mentioned in Isaac Asimov's highly realistic books. However I think it will be extremely difficult to acquire these pillows unless Ladonia self would produce them.
I would therefore propose to create a research team, which would work on creation of the facilities, where anti-gravitation pillows could be produced. This would be cheaper than buying them from abroad, and would ensure the amount of pillows adequate to our needs.
What concerns the looks of the towers, I think Nimis-style could be a good choice - the towers would fit in most of the environments, such as deserts, forests, savannas or jungles.
PS.: Have you published the sketches of the towers, or do they just exist in the imaginary dimension? It would be highly interesting to see them.
