Example text

But it is really a relationship that the analysand has with the analysand. The highly intelligent embryo sees and experiences whatever it sees and experiences; the highly intelligent man or woman also gives a very convincing account of what is taking place. A difficulty would arise if by any chance we could introduce this highly intelligent postnatal person to the highly intelligent embryo who could tell such very different stories, different narratives about the same facts. If the “unsinkable” Titanic could meet with its passengers, those it sank, I wonder what the dialogue would be.

That is why, when you are satisfied that the patient is actually developing, it is as well to be able to forget what you know and to discard what you want to happen. It is difficult to de-barrass the mind of its load of experience; we are liable to slow the patient down by clinging to out-of-date ideas and, as a result, are unable to watch the patient’s progress to some other idea. As I said yesterday, I think it is as well to be able to acknowledge our debt to our ancestors—our mental ancestors.

Another patient complained strongly about the behaviour of everybody else. Thinking of this in terms of projection, I tried to draw his attention to the fact that everybody was wrong, but that there was nothing wrong with him. There again, thinking over the matter, I couldn’t understand why he kept on coming. If the situation was that A, B, C, D and so on were so hostile and so difficult, what was I supposed to do? What was I supposed to interpret? There is nothing I can do about a universe in which everybody is wrong.
