A notable precursor is Raymond Roussel. In his posthumous work ‘‘How I Wrote Certain of My Books,’’ Roussel provides the key to his programmatic method of text generation. In his works the clinamen manifests in the law of the particular homonym. His stories unfold as a kind of metagrammic ‘‘eternal return’’ of an eponymous sentence as a teleological one. Roussel’s use of what he calls ‘‘the device’’ (le procédé) consists in a core sentence whose words have a homophonic surplus-value and whose entire meaning can be altered by the substitution of a single letter.
By means of the clinamen, the lex atomica which turbulates the laminar ﬂow of grammatical order, writing validates a parapraxis in cacography. Yet the semantic deviance, introduced into writing by the clinamen, is not to be valued as erroneous, nor as inspiring a desire to be corrected. Rather, it is to be considered as one of a multitude of forces within writing created by the syzygy of necessity and chance. 8 16:02 clinamen returna sigmaﬁcation to the role of event, cuasing thesstabiltity of the code to ocillate in Jerry’s ethernity of graphic noise.
Baudrillard outlines such a model, claiming seduction to be ‘‘the world’s elementary dynamic’’ creating an alinguistic condition of the sign. Such signs, according to Baudrillard, are ‘‘without a subject of enunciation . . they are pure signs in that they are neither discursive nor generate any exchange’’ (, –). Seduction is a surface operation carried out among appearances, precipitating detours, deﬂections, clinamens, reversals, and cancellations that force meaning to manifest as intensely provisional apparitions.
