“Fortunately, we live on the basis of a vital illusion, on the basis of absence, an unreality, a non-immediacy of things. Fortunately, nothing is instantaneous, simultaneous or contemporary. Fortunately, nothing is present or identical to itself. Fortunately, reality does not take place.” Jean Baudrillard, The Perfect Crime, 1996.
