Abstract [en]

“Because Chance delivers good and ill fortune to all, it is indeed the overarching deity which controls life.” The Topical Testament (Deities [1.01]) 

In a modern, fast and interconnected world, the modern human has many stresses to deal with. The complete freedom to do, see and think whatever you like is a poisoned chalice. We pile pressure on ourselves to be successful, and we can only blame ourselves if we feel we don’t reach our potential. Anxiety spreads from human to human like an infectious disease. 

The Topical Testament exposes the fallacies and frailties of modern life through a designed, fictional and journalistic religion in which believers follow, adore and find salvation from anxiety in Chance - accepting that as the great power of life it indiscriminately punishes and rewards humanity.
