»»»»» The order of the universe lies underseas, in a coffer, in the depths of a valley. Oh ! How green was my valley that never was! It lies there, in the depths of a valley undersea, swallowed by a pulp.

»»»»» L’ordre de l’univers, où gît-il ? — Sous la mer. C’est l’ordre sous-marin. Il est là, dans un coffret écrasé par un sous-marin. The order lies there, in the depths of the sea, smashed by a submarine, a yellow submarine.

»»»»» Donde la orden del mundo? Donde la liberdad del pueblo?

»»»»» No fundo, a ordem do mundo pára lá, bem no fundo submarino, lá onde habitam os grandes submarinos. É lá a sua morada, no lugar onde jaz a máquina do mundo, em miniatura, num cofre, um pequeno cofre que se tem na palma da mão: l’ordre de l’univers dans le creux de la main: a coffer in the palm of your hand.

 

»»»»» [Clues: o título do filme de John Ford, How green was my valley!; a canção dos Beatles, The yellow submarine; a noção camoniana de “máquina do mundo” (Os lusíadas, canto X, estrofe 80 e seguintes).]
