“Historia (Inquiry); so that the actions of people will not fade with time.”

The Histories of Herodotus of Halicarnassus

"That is war... To defeat foes in the name of a country. The states affairs of the enemy are inconsequential."

Radiant Historia (videogame)

"The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass, leaving memories that become legends. Legends fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the Age that give it birth comes again."

-Robert Jordan
The Wheel of Time

"Solomon saith: There is no new thing upon the earth. So that as Plato had imagination, that all knowledge was but remembrance; so Solomon giveth his sentence, that all novelty is but oblivion."

-Francis Bacon: Essays LVIII.
(Epígrafe en "El Inmortal" de Jorge Luis Borges)

"¿Y a mí qué me importa el futuro? Sin duda, Seldon lo habrá previsto y se habrá preparado para él. Llegarán otras crisis en el futuro, cuando el poder del dinero esté tan muerto como fuerza histórica como lo está ahora el de la religión. Que mis sucesores resuelvan sus problemas, como yo he resuelto el nuestro."

-Isaac Asimov

Rain & Bliss -Poetry-

By: William Rosado Ocasio & Nerivaliz Villafañe Colón

It rains over the dark world
Purple roses of transparent steam
That sprinkle over the wet faces
With a green substance that cause the bliss.

Rain in my eyes
When you don’t see behind the lies
The sun in my heart
That shines for you.

The wind is dragging it
To the most remote places in the universe
Cluster of the no-mind of the animal
That move between the feet of men.

Lost hero of water
Lost hero of wind
Lost hero of darkness
that lives within me

Monster of the night
That runs inside the mind
Of the mistress of the darkness
That washes in rain the bloodied hands of a martyr.

Mistress, oh mistress, with the red rain you’ve gone
with the red heart I gave you
with the voice of my song
Mistress, oh dark cat of a mistress, dancing panther of my soul!

Rain in everyplace that the darkness takes home
Eating up the dream of humans, eating up our lightly souls
That sleeps in the belly of a dormant lion
Where the dark desires consume the lust of ambiguous corpses.

Ambiguous life and heaven that fills me
Ambiguous dream that's eaten, oh no
leaving me empty of rain to fall
leaving me nothing and nothing at all

Oh, windows that comes to the door
To say goodbye to the masters of unknown,
Angels that blow the winds of the north
And fill my mind with heroes that I don’t know…

Angels and demons
Demons with angels
Angels the heroes
Of devils from rainstorms.

Things that happen in a winter’s night,
Holidays of the summer’s chanting voices:
Rain that becomes hero of humanity,
Bliss that consume the void and the noises.
