Decalogue X Does not appear

Is, in Kieslowski’s Decalogue, the mysterious, Christ-like, home- less young man who appears to the hero in decisive moments, not also such an asexual, ghost-like presence? And is it not the ultimate irony that this Irakl-Heidegger vision of the asexual, angelic entity found its latest expression in Michel Houellebecq’s Les Particules élémentaires? At the end of this bestseller from 1998,27 which triggered a large debate all around Europe, humanity collectively decides to replace itself with genetically modified asexual humanoids in order to avoid the deadlock of sexuality.
