Blask I 106
Coincidence/Baudrillard/early: two hypotheses:
1. Everything is destined to meet and only coincidence prevents that.
2. All things are independent of one another, and only the coincidence makes that they sometimes meet with one another.
Blask I 107
These two hypotheses are rejected. Both have no place in the motionless, ceremonial universe of Baudrillard:
Coincidence/Baudrillard: There is no coincidence in Baudrillard's ceremonial universe. Nor does there exist a rational concatenation of things or events. Instead, a special kind of arbitrariness governs the world: catastrophic, fatal and diabolic.
