Example text

Neither soar too high, lest the sun melt the wax; nor swoop too low, lest the feathers be wetted by the sea. Follow me closely! ”31 We hear our own parents warning us from their experience not to jump too high or stick out our necks, to abide by the rules lest we be hurt.

By being victimized, abused, and manipulated, he gains moral freedom, a mandate to imbue his own life, his surroundings, and transcendence with meaning and values.

However, if Sisyphus arrived at a creative modus vivendi with his stone, and Tantalus can feel, as did Kierkegaard, a maieutic revelation of transcendence within his inner self (which Sartre denied but we accept), then man ceases to be a useless passion, as claimed by Sartre, and attains a potential for authenticity which he may realize.

However, the “good” breast-mother, who supplies food to the mouth-ego, hovers somewhere on the boundaries of its omnipresence. The infant perceives pain, hunger, and thirst as occurring within himself, but the milk flows from the outside, and is sucked in by the mouth-ego. We shall later elaborate on the premise that the child feels sexual excitement while sucking his mother’s breast, as does the mother. The mother, however, suppresses this excitement, because she conceives it as incestuous. This suppression is transmitted to the nursing child through intuitive empathy, and direct, tactile, nonverbal communication, creating a severe conflict in the mouth-ego.
