The impossibility of penetrating the divine scheme of the universe cannot stop us from planning human schemes, even though we are conscious that they are provisional. . . (Theoretically, it is not impossible to think of a language where the name of each thing says all the details of its destiny, past and future). Jorge Luis Borges, “The Analytical Language of John Wilkins.”

La imposibilidad de penetrar el esquema divino del universo no puede, sin embargo, disuadirnos de planear esquemas humanos, aunque nos conste que éstos son provisorios. (Teóricamente, no es inconcebible un idioma donde el nombre de cada ser indicara todos los pormenores de su destino, pasado y venidero.) Jorge Luis Borges, “El idioma analítico de John Wilkins”.
