“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

Natural Thoughts -Poetry-

Is raining in the river
Of a desert country
Outside the frontier

In ethereal lightning’s
Dancing in the forest
The ghost of my dream

Cutting down a tree
Hand of the great Gaia
Void of the future

Laments in the water
Fishing squids and plankton
Coral reef inside the space of an hour

Mines of crystal shards
Diamonds cutting hands
Rubies staining the dust

Air blowing my thoughts
Leafs of endless moments
Eating my life force
