Michel Houellebecq’s Possibility of an Island surprisingly interacts with The Diaries of one of the greatest dancer in history – Vaslav Nijinsky. Both touch a basic subject in different times and in different ways: the divinity of each human being. Daniel25 and Marie23, the last generation of clones in Houellebecq’s novel, as well as Nijinsky communicate their message in a biblical way, adressing it to the ones somewhere out there with the strong need to connect. Daniel and Marie find each other on internet, while the outside world is vanishing. Nijinsky writes furiously about the God inside of him and inside of all beings, six and a half weeks before he enters the mental institution. Both perspectives reflect the dance with their existance.
