Coincidence is not an easy work for me. It is humorous, but also reveals my fear. Because of my belief in the calculable vacuum, I fear anything of immediacy. For examples, I am afraid of deep water, the sea, water ponds, swimming pools, sea monsters, sunken ships, sharps, and the coldness of the dark. In Luc Besson’s The Big Blue (1988), the main character Jacques dive into the deep blue sea out of an unknown desire of challenge. It is the fear to expect disconnection in the vacuum, where there is only a man and a simple variable (the depth of the sea). In the end, he dies to dives into the deeper blue. At that breathtaking moment, I realize that the only way to give up “coincidence” is to die. My conclusion may sound pessimistic, it in fact grasp an optimistic side. Those of immediacy expand a new space in the consciousness. They exist because they take place. If we grasp the moment, we feel the rebirth.
