It would be difficult to track down and find a more famous mountain anywhere on the planet than the Matterhorn, because it faithfully illustrates the definition of the term “mountain” and expresses it to perfection. The first ascent of the “mountain of mountains,” as the Matterhorn is commonly called, crowned the Golden Age of Mountain Climbing and heralded the beginning of a new Alpine Era. Because triumph and defeat are wedded together here – there are always winners and losers in life – this event unmasked the polarization, which influences every event on earth and is transformed into an allegory.
