The annual Illuminati meeting started like any other. Carlos Slim was late, but he was always late, and the other members proceeded without him as they did most years. As usual, the meeting was held in a remote castle deep within the Swiss Alps. Both the cloaking device and the three-mile radius refractor field shielded the castle not only from sight, but from satellites and radar as well.
The meeting was called to order by the Chairman, David Rockefeller. More machine now than man, at 101 years old and having recently faked his own death, the whirring and clicking of his cybernetic arms could be heard as he slammed the gavel, calling the meeting to order.
