Chance Catches

A note book entry dated July 30, 1997, produced under the rubric of DICE INCISIONS

In trying to explain […] to […] I’ve come across an interesting if not highly intriguing formulation: the producting [sic] of randomness in a literary (machine) text is a safeguard against entropy. In one sense this is a homeopathic theory of semiotics. A certain degree of nonsense is incorporated in a text to make it travel… self incorporated enigmas power the vehicle…. Also the invitation to play a game of chance functions as an attraction. I almost want to say that REGs [Random Event Generators] capture audiences.

Producting? A type of multiplication at play, perhaps.

And so for day 564
