"Terror is as much a part of the concept of truth as runniness is of the concept of jam." --Jean Baudrillard, Cool Memories

"Just as Jarry sourced many figures from the work of Charles Vernon Boys, William Crookes and Sir William Thomson (Lord Kelvin), Baudrillard dabbles in the writings of Benoit Mandelbrot and Jacques Monod. " --Baudrillard Dictionary (2010) by Richard G. Smith
