Funes el Memorioso [Funes, His Memory] Jorge Luis Borges click on names to see more mathematical fiction by the same author. Funes, at age nineteen, falls down from a horse and upon recovery, finds an awakening of memory capacity of almost unimaginable magnitude. Funes tries to systematize more and more of his memory to rectify perceived flaws in the order of things. As Borges tells about Funes:. He had not written it down, for what he once meditated would not be erased.

The first stimulus to his work, I believe, had been his discontent with the fact that "thirty-three Uruguayans" required two symbols and three words, rather than a single word and a single symbol. Later he applied his extravagant principle to the other numbers.

In lieu of five hundred, he would say nine. Each word had a particular sign, a species of mark; the last were very complicated. I attempted to explain that this rhapsody of unconnected terms was precisely the contrary of a system of numbering. I said that to say three hundred and sixty-five was to say three hundreds, six tens, five units: an analysis which does not exist in such numbers as The Negro Timoteo or The Flesh Blanket.

Funes did not understand me, or did not wish to understand me. More information about this work can be found at en. Note: This is just one work of mathematical fiction from the list.
