50146 - The secret library

N. Lygeros
Translated from the Greek by Athina Kehagias

The secret library
had many hidden rooms.
In its center there was a large drawing room
which was heated by a fireplace
with some symbols upon it.
There were many instruments on the main table.
There was a telescope…
It looked like that of Galileo.
There was also a medical thermometer.
At the other end, someone had placed
Pascal’s calculator
and a Torricelli barometer.
This sight complemented a depiction of Rømer’s experiment which had the ability to measure
the speed of light.
Upon another office desk in the corner
there were sheets filled with mathematical formulas
which belonged to Leibniz’s infinitesimal calculus
but simultaneously the elements of Newton’s law of universal gravitation were obvious.
That is why we’ve noted in our eonologion
that we were
in the seventeenth century.
