La biblioteca de babel.

Catálogo del vacío perfecto (I).

LA BIBLIOTECA DE BABEL es el título de un conocido relato de Jorge Luis Borges incluído en su libro Ficciones (1944) en el que describe una biblioteca infinita que guarda todos los volúmenes con todas las posibles combinaciones de letras en todos los idiomas.

«…se dedujo que la Biblioteca es total y que sus anaqueles registran todas las posibles combinaciones de los veintitantos símbolos ortográficos (número aunque vastísimo no infinito) o sea todo lo que es dable expresar: en todos los idiomas. Todo: la historia minuciosa del porvenir, las autobiografías de los arcángeles, el catalogo de la Biblioteca, miles y miles de catálogos falsos, la demostración de la falacia de esos catálogos, la demostración de la falacia del catálogo verdadero, el evangelio gnóstico de Basílides, el comentario de ese evangelio, la relación verídica de tu muerte, la versión de cada libro en todas las lenguas,… »

Custodia todos los libros que se han escrito, los que se van a escribir y también los que nunca se escribirán. En sus anaqueles podemos encontrar, junto a muchos de los libros que hay en otras bibliotecas (los libros acaecidos) otros que no han sido escritos (volúmenes no acaecidos o invisibles) pero también existen y son reales pues tenemos noticia de ellos gracias a los libros visibles. En esta sección se pretende ir dando forma al catálogo de esos libros intangibles que conforman el “vacío perfecto”.
Evidentemente no es un proyecto original, en inglés, se puede consultar the invisible library.
