Los Racionalistas - the period of cosmography
Los Racionalistas

Los Racionalistas

Creían en un mundo sin olores
Sin colores, caricias ni suspiros
Dibujo de una fórmula magnífica
Reflejo de un espejo razonado

Pensaban que la vida era intrusa
A un mundo mineral y sin sentido
Imperio de la ley termodinámica
Que niega al orden alza y permanencia.

Tan ciegos al rumor de los sentidos
Y sordos al fragor del sentimiento
Que olvidaron que no son las medidas
Lo que importa, sino las vivencias.

I like it in google translate! with the benefit of seeing the real words alongside, e.g. 'medidas' which hints to me at the medium (as in the medium is the message) rather than measures (with no idea if it really holds that inference) and 'vivencias', which obviously contains life in a way 'experiences' doesn't.

You got a keen eye Mr. Cat. Vivencias was a word I chose in the polishing because experiences was too close to experimenting and thus to that which I'm criticizing. I was going to call it "Los Físicos" but a) Dürrenmat already used that title and b) I was afraid I might be chided by Juggzy or some one else :)

You may indeed have had trouble from Juggzy if you'd called it that!

Yes. I am the protector of physicists. All of them. I am their protector.
