Uhm... not quite like this:

However, I introduced a concept in Falcon called "Mantra"; it's not visible at language level, at least not for now; it's a concept used in the engine. A Mantra is a basic entity that can be invoked, or better summoned in the engine or in a module. Namely, now it's either a Function or a Class. After searching a bit in the literature for a concept capturing this two concepts in one definition, I found nothing precise, so I picked this ... rather spiritual ... but adequate name.
