Page Background



Scientists from all over the world came to attend lectures of

great weight and importance. The subject of the conference

was new ways of perceiving matter.

The scientists listened to the first few lectures in a state of

concentration. With the passage of lectures in time, the

attention of the scientists became diluted. Two scientists

slumped in their chairs. For some, the gravitation acted

subtly upon their eyelids. A few slept with one eye closed,

one irrefutably slept with two eyes closed. An associate

professor daydreamed. A full professor observed the

trajectory of a speck of dust in the air. Most sat firmly

grounded in their convictions, so they did not listen.

Then a woman professor walked onto the podium. She

stood with a rigidly vertical posture. The proportions of her

convexities and her concavities were in perfect equilibrium.

The two physicists slumped in their chairs, one an expert in

quantum mechanics, the other an expert in string theory,

equally distanced from the point of place of the new object,

raised their corpuses to verticality.

The triangular neckline of the professor’s blouse ended at

the level of her solar plexus.
