Re 89dec6: Before the .com's went .boom, I used to work for something similar to MyTravel (doing GIS DB geekery for a
living). Needless to say, I snarfed a copy of the database when we went belly up, and here's what it has to say about the
coordinates:

(Negative coordinates are S/W. Most of this data was 'found' in various other government-funded GIS DBs, so I'll stick to my belief
that Cape Town is not where a previous poster believes it is.)

Comments: The Melanchthon coordinate puts him in southern Utah.

Winthrop's coordinates are the same as those in the 8-April-1997 ad, #4. (Central MA.)

M. Flacius I.'s coordinates are for Capetown, which coordinates were mentioned in the 22-November-1983 ad, iii.

Mistah Kurtz is in Germany, at the coordinates given on the horizontal sword in the 1-May-1988 ad.

Capt. Morgan is at the coordinates listed on the vertical sword in the same ad (Geneva, Switzerland).

Schrodinger is in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Owsley is in East Texas, somewhere south of Dallas. His coordinates were given in the 1-May-1986 ad, #10.

Hooray for Google Earth.

Handwritten Greek is last part of 1 Cor 1:28: "and things that are not
to turn off things that are." This passage is quoted several times in the
materials. I used "turn off" deliberately, rather than "bring to naught," as the
verb "katargeo" apparently means something like "disactivate," which, given the
machinery/communication references we see throughout, could be significant.

The second quote is by Umberto Eco
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Umberto_Eco

It is part of a passage about '4 kinds of people' in book by Eco's called Foucaults Pendulum.
http://www.goodreads.com/quotes/302476-there-are-four-kinds-of-people-in-this-world-cretins

The full description of the book says it is a story about " three vanity publisher employees (Belbo, Diotallevi and Casaubon) invent their own 
conspiracy for fun. They call this satirical intellectual game "The Plan," a hoax that connects the medieval Knights Templar with other occult 
groups from ancient to modern times."

Also: "Foucault's Pendulum is divided into ten segments represented by the ten Sefiroth. The novel is full of esoteric references to the Kabbalah. 
The title of the book refers to an actual pendulum designed by the French physicist Léon Foucault to demonstrate the rotation of the earth, which 
has symbolic significance within the novel."
