Triptico cafeinico

Este post debiera ir al futuro weblog en ingles, pero nunca tuve escrupulos en linkear material en ese idioma desde aca, o sea que nunca espere que mis lectores fueran anglo-ignorantes. La segregacion debera esperar, por ejemplo, a que me siente a traducir siquiera fragmentos para los posts en castellano. Entonces, y a la espera de ese momento...

... para pichones de Mentats, o simples admiradores de Dune:

It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion,

It is by the beans of Java the thoughs acquire speed,
the hands acquire shaking, the shaking becomes a warning,

It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion.

... para gente que se ahoga de pasion:

Oh, just, subtle, and mighty caffeine! that to the hearts of Phoenician and craftsman alike, for the ever-growing wound that never heals, and for the tides that tempt the spirit to give up, bringest a sling, a graft and a pair of crutches; eloquent caffeine! that with thy potent rhetoric reasonest away the purposes of wrath; and to the guilty man for one night givest back the hopes of his youth, and hands washed pure from cobwebs; and to the proud man a brief oblivion for deeds stillborn and promises unfulfilled; that summonest to the laboratory of gedankenexperiments, for the triumphs of strapped ingenuity, virtual castles; and confoundest debunking, and dost reverse the judgment of well-oiled committees; --thou buildest upon the bosom of vacuum, out of the ephemeral models that spin in a feverish mind, tools and ships worthy of the arts of future nanotech-- beyond the splendor of Earth's life, and from the order of computer simulation callest into interaction with real-world data the interfaces of improbable devices and the workings of long dreamt machines. cleansed from the dishonours of commercial implementation. Thou only givest these gifts to man; and thou hast the keys of the hacking-room, oh, just, subtle, and mighty caffeine!

... y para los que se dejan impresionar por simbolos y mandalas:

Estructura en dos dimensiones de la molecula de cafeina, exhibiendo el tipico doble anillo de las purinas.

El Mantra del Mentat es afanado. La pieza larga es original, y es una parodia, no muy buena, de este canto al opio de Thomas de Quincey.
