Example text

The rivers are still not fixed in their courses. They seem to search vainly for equilibrium by wandering off aimlessly in unstable meanders that curve into the form of lakes called sacados with isthmuses that repeatedly break down and recombine in the futile creation of islands and lakes of only six months' duration. They even produce new topographic forms of jumbled island and lake. Or they extend in cross channels called furos that anastomose between the courses of river and tributary in an atypical network fashion, until it is impossible to decide if the area is a river basin or a sea profusely segmented by straits.

Then, when their first regular carved-out drainage troughs become defined channels into which the water from the rains flows and gathers, currents form, carving out incipient beds and initiating, with the tumultuous energy of the cataracts, a centuries-long stage of clash with the solidity of the earth. Finally, when the structural obstacles are overcome, a course is established and a riverbed defined, the river is fully constituted, with its stable tributaries, a continuous slope descending in regular curves, a thalweg adjusted to the contexture of the soil and to the morphological differentiation that reflects its various segments—from the headwaters where the wild flows of its former torrential regime remain, to the midcourse, which characterizes its current stage of development, to the lower stretch, which prefigures its decrepitude and where it spreads out to build, with the settling out of the silt that it bears imperceptibly, the very alluvial plain through which it runs.

It would seem, then, that the expansive discourse characteristic of the analysis must have to do with the complexity of the problems: the flight of fancy can make easy use of induction, and truths can devolve into hyperbole. From time to time we idealize uncontrollably the tangible elements of a surprising reality, and the most unbridled dreamer may well find himself in perfect company with the most dedicated scholar. One can accompany Katzer, for example, on his project to classify, analyze, and compare ancient petrified fossils by means of a long pilgrimage of mind through the most remote points of the oldest ages.
