Nowadays, psychoanalysis has acquainted the vanilla fragrance of disturbing experimental elements, mathematics and other funky beats. Creepy details unveiled for internet community create extra tasks to keep the lyrical fight on and stay chill, sharp enough to cut the head off from the therapeutic indulgence wrapped in lame Jungian niceties pour idiots.
Years of scientific rebellion and quick access to the future is not a big science at all. The practice is now, which is knowledge, the only way to fly.
00:34 And techno has somehow a different message. More for the future. To prepare us for the future.
00:46 We dont send a lot of pattern, or something! We dont do big promotion. No advertise.
00:52 It runs on mouth-propaganda.. Very undergroundly.
The best promo of psychoanalytic practice is comparable to the old-school Rave parties – it is all up to you whether go headbanging this way or not.
Prior to the commercialization of the rave scene, when large legal venues became the norm for these events, the location of the rave was kept secret until the night of the event, usually being communicated through answering machine messages, mobile messaging, secret flyers, and websites.
The website is able to function as an online mind-blowing business card. A rambling guest visit may present some bonus tracks on psychoanalytic knowledge given away then finally a bit of a chance to think it all over and a slight jump-start the existential rave for the soul.
At first glance, it may look like as if the old crafts required some necessary skills to paint under the particular principles of perspective.
What time is love?
Then, goes the latter question on what is whole while mostly forms painted side-on, through the ‘halves‘ and proportions although all the features depicted so glowingly in profile. Such facial appearance usually first identified as being designed in a ‘careless‘ style.
Following article’s abstract may be considered as another author’s try (not) to fall in love with breath-taking epic Greek mythological drama about Medusa.
This article aims at interpreting Medusa as an intrinsically ambiguous figure. Taking Freud as a starting-point I will analyse in what way Medusa represents what may not be represented; how she wanders in a territory that belongs to both death and life, male and female, order and chaos, the visible and the invisible.
Well, it’s a long-drawn Odyssey journey many contemporary thinkers still taking to break through the Oedipal questions when preferring creepy Greek myths for the in-depth deconstruction. In fear, we trust. Meanwhile, medusa myth leads to the Freudian catchword on ‘castration’.
”To Decapitate”, wrote Freud in 1922, – ”to castrate”. He was speaking of the ways in which unconscious thinking is symbolically transformed into the words and thoughts of the conscious mind. The truth of his statement now receives wider acceptance than originally and is borne out by many examples in art and literature where amorous or erotic content occurs together with decapitation.
Seems like there is a pale falcon-headed visage of Ancient Egyptian deity. But… is there any head if closer look taken as some meditations on these majestic figures?
The parts, including body-parts, and then not to forget to keep track on the wall-writings constructed as the endless string of pearls full of intricate images so to deliver these metaphorical styles of beyond the common sense in Lacanian Language it is a “signifying chain“.
It’s difficult to understand. To love is to suffer, to follow the love is to experience sufferings, well, but not falling in love, strangely; ‘I love you’ is hard to state, sometimes, it hurtz.
The title ‘Pure Acid’ is generally used to demonstrate the hardness of these unutterable ‘representations what may not be represented’ deep trips Ancient Egyptians did high and pretty much wall-stoned on Sacred Lotus comparable to one of the most prevalent pop-psychedelix – LSD. They did fascinating paintings befalling in a psychotic state and revealed all the existential questions. Actually, they did it all great. Mon merci.
What about me? What about me?
Medusa’s head tells in her facial expressions that there’s no head and behind that myth is the funky figure of Acephale – extra fanciful hard candy wrapping unlocked.
Scrolling down the ambiguous materials on the wiki about the ancient Egyptian deity of the sun and reaching, again and again, the mythological fact that Ra’a created himself, so he must be feeding…himself. Why not, what an independent essence ever entreated to sit still on the picture for merely a little time.
Zoom in, zoom out and there is a tongue finally distinguished.
Super diet, lactose free
What does He eat? The straightforward answer: nothing.
In conventional psychoanalytic terms, He consumes Milk. The white area around the hawk’s claw or ram’s horn is a helpful tip. The claw above the miniature tongue is holding nothing and giving precisely the right amount of precious dairy beverage, that made of nothing, by Himself, embodied in a baby goat.
The head composed in animal-derived body-parts for only one purpose – animals sometimes are crazy beasts and don’t know the stopping words. Fun truth: they don’t speak; obviously, they can’t stop raving in the wild world nor being domesticated. They have the Desire to Be – the total need to eat, to copulate, to fight and other unpredictable, impulsive activities. The logic of to Be has no limits of delight as the newborn baby has the need to eat and then going number one and two, to do pee-pee and to faire caca.
The big Ball above the head shows the two stages of the subject’s development – the oral and anal in animalistic description through the snake, tongue-splitted creature.
Lacanian mirror stage theory based on the twisted and inverted logic and the missing keys for understanding post-structural fundamentals are the ancient Egyptian crafts constructed in the same Klein-bottled, Borromean-knotted topological bitch-mode.
“The mirror stage is a drama…which manufactures for the subject, caught up in the lure of spatial identification, the succession of phantasies that extends from a fragmented body-image to a form of its totality.” This misrecognition (seeing an ideal-I where there is a fragmented, chaotic body) subsequently “characterizes the ego in all its structures.”
Sure, go back to Ancient Egypt stuff. The mural paintings in the Nefertiti tomb had captured the perfect logic of subject development in the psychoanalytic sense. The priests relentlessly left some entertaining puzzles and guiding threads for any wandering eye to track the most culturally speculated existential questions.
This wall fragment is a Lacanian mirror in action where the principles of text-deconstruction assembled in post-modernistic fashion.
Let’s study this subject matter by pieces, well, randomly, in a comfortable way. For such a substantial royal legacy, it’s the best option, really.
The head of a bird and the top of a red ball reached the picture frames. Just two slices, two halves then similar symbolic representations occasionally seen in the hieroglyphs.
The picture is a double-mirror. The starting viewpoint and at the same time hint to this Lacanian device may assist the bird placed like in the photo frame.
Things here have the second part similarly structured by the geometry of a pinhole camera. The mural painting organised is if the viewer, in fact, watching it all through the tiny gap.
For instance, for a nice start, the inverted and reflected logic functioning as the double-mirror may be investigated in the left corner. The two black halves, the baskets, let them be called in this common friendly system, composed by the plain logic mentioned earlier: from the right side located smaller hieroglyph, from the left, the more prominent form displayed, and a bit more stretched, extended, and finally, as expected, flipped.
Okay, stretched in a sense that it is a reflection of the previous smaller basket. The applied principle is like a soft play in black-white and can be used in both directions; therefore, two halves, these cool baskets, they are never the originals, looped in repetition, reflecting each other, they have none of the original design. Well, here appears the Great Klein’s Bottle again, blessed by the Psychoanalytic Knowledge Base.
Very likely, in the genuine jungles of various amazon publications, the speed of understanding Psychology & Counseling category leads straight to zero points. Somehow an indestructible text-brain barrier has already developed into Great Chinese Wall to slow down any perception of academic texts while stepping into the woods of authors in psychoanalytic field theories. Apparently, that so-called ‘reading’, this to-go-mental process is the central enigma that makes it all complicated. It is hard to start off even browsing the book abstract online while many nerdy words, twisted bottles, comments, quotes, reviews pop up all the time confusing more than telling something exciting at any rate disregarding the college or university degree behind to provide helpful insight in reading. Besides, any book, in general, is a killjoy if the whole meaning is out of one’s reach.
“Let’s face it: Lacan’s Écrits, one of the classical texts of modern thought are unreadable – they remain impenetrable if we just pick the thick volume up and start to read it. Neill, Vanheule and Hook provide what we were all waiting for: a detailed commentary which does not aim to replace reading ECRITS but to render it possible. The three volumes do wonder, their effect is no less than magic: when, after getting stuck at a particularly dense page of Écrits, we turn to the corresponding pages in the commentary and then return to the page of Écrits which pushed us to madness, the same lines appear in all the clarity of their line of thought. It is thus a safe prediction that Neill, Vanheule and Hook’s commentary will become a kind of permanent companion of the English translation of Écrits, indispensable for everyone who wants to find her or his way in its complex texture.”
Slavoj Zizek (From Editorial Reviews)
Really, why reading?
This is madness pushing us into a total abyss — reading, studying post-post-modernistix literature line by line blowing the heads off.
Sucker punch lines
Then the Oedipus question is intact.
So I’m going to make some opening remarks, because you see I…
we really have to hammer this thing out, because
this is not a story that can be retracted.
L’ envers de la psychanalyse 1969 – 1970 (via Google Translate)
Going back to moi roots, let’s hammer out the Oedipal question.
Introductory paragraph dedicated to post-modern writings may seem tedious. Well, memes, furthermore texts are challenging to interpret in the beginning. Whatever it’s an exceptional opportunity to skim out the layers of Oedipal myth opening the maze of walkways, in quest of secret doors where pictures are the first advance. No more blind faith in texts. A daring tour over the Wikipedia folios on mythological world views collected from different regions will support the identification of the ultimate Oedipal question ‘Is Father Real?’.

Some myths present a chronology of prehistoric times, many of these involve a culture hero who taught people how to build houses, or cook, or write, or was the ancestor of an ethnic group or dynastic family. Mythology is intimately related to ritual. Many myths are oral associations with ritual acts, such as dances, ceremonies, and sacrifices.
One notable feature of Japanese mythology is its explanation of the origin of the Imperial Family, which has been used historically to assign godhood to the imperial line. The title of the Emperor of Japan, tennō (天皇), means “heavenly sovereign”. Note that Japanese is not transliterated consistently across all sources (see spelling of proper nouns).
Korean mythology (in Korean: 한국 신화 (韓國神話)) are the stories passed down by word of mouth over thousands of years on the Korean Peninsula and only written down in historical times. These stories serve as creation myths about the world and origin myths about nature or the social world. Korean myths are often localized and concern specific villages or clans.
Many ancient Korean shamanistic myths were lost following the rise of Confucianism, which stressed pragmatism and rationalism. Only a fraction of Korean myths believed to have existed in ancient times were ultimately documented by Confucian and Buddhist scholars, many of whom modified the stories to fit within their own belief systems.
Illustrations listed above are elegant, full of peculiar details, some of them, obviously, appear to be more kawaii than any other mythological representation ever reprinted in fairy tale stories books.
Klein’s bottles deluged into the contemporary look inside online books addressed to the topological and mathematical approach in psychoanalytic knowledge. Yep, pictures, figures are prominent sources to examine and study Oedipal’s complexity (toxicity).
Asian cultural legacy as an outrageous example will guide and uncover the reason for frequent usage of this twisted topological form. Yet again a more brief investigation into a few drawings previously presented.
The picture is not terrifying nor confusing unlike the Freudian Oedipal myth recounted shamelessly about the mad king and his violent deeds.
The man is holding a blank paper. To be precise, it is an unrolled bleached parchment white as basmati rice, not any droplets of ink brushed the surface nor written messages for the viewer scribbled at all. He too has the skin of lighter pigment than the population of South-East Asian region on average. The man has an authentic outfit, chic cap.
Algebra ist gar nicht wichtig
Then, after a few simple words of praise on this remarkable piece of art, allow your eyes to turn back on the fear of algebra.
The image of a man, sitting on the bamboo floor, quickly reassembled and reconverted into the Moebius stripe.
The scroll exposes a snippet of Moebius stripe figuratively. There is no even a stain of a hieroglyph left on the parchment, but nearby lies a massive pile of sheets occupying a former in-use table for the tea ceremony. Papers ready to be employed into large pieces of kinds of … any literature, soon, printed for masses in millions of copies.
For some general historical information, in the year of 1858, the Moebius stripe was brought to life to (by) the scientific community. The waves of deductive reasoning in topology distributed virtually hand in hand as ‘the Middle Class in Joseon’ established in 1853 on the Korean canvas. This is not a mystery. It is alogic beingactively implemented into any kinds of works when discoveries or other actions happen nearly concurrently.
So in view of this picture, lounges a warning sign on all the activities related to working with text. Also, this all around the globe, the vicious cycle of text-production has been ultimately accustomed for the middle class.
The first topological dive into the illustration of Korean class of the Joseon Dynasty furnished in no significant characters usually distinctly pictured in mythological representations of deities like emerging Japanese Amaterasu placed in the centre wearing the luxurious kimono, peacefully watching Her Japanese Universe.
The ‘privileged class of commoners’ designed in a neutral style. Damn, these guys are pale and dull. The only movement intercepted comprises holding a scroll in the right corner. The central figure in action gently migrated to the right side part of the picture. Furthermore, the Oedipal problem moved to the Asian region invading with low-cost goods from Alibaba, leaving no chance for breathing fresh air in China.
So what is the importance of Oedipal myth again? It is about holding one specific funny knowledge – ‘There is no Real Father.’ There is no need for creating non-stop as bees produce honey, a cow gives the milk. Well, people are not animals to work all week long.
Somehow, little by little, humankind messed up with the invention of writing systems and now the problem of producing more and more goods, the sadistic demand to be ‘creative’ and ‘smart’ will fuck up the bright expectations of the future.
The problem humanity now meets is the inability to stop the educational process. Many children holding a pen at school learning something allegedly important – the insensible knowledge-shift concerning Real Father then caged in Matrix writing an essay to pass an exam for the college-knowledge.
The Oedipal dilemma is about crushing it, deconstructing any stupid machinery barriers between people trapped in acting outs. Finally, dodge this Oedipal question into speaking and finish that boring weekly reports in 15 minutes without procrastination.
The symbol of Ankh inherited from Ancient Egypt used and abused at any sphere in post-modernity. And that’s not breaking news if it doesn’t seem unusual at first sight to encounter dark horses of pop-music in Nefertiti outfit. But first, Ankh tempted the Egyptologist researchers to scrutinise the origins and possible applications quite thoroughly. Well, the Internet helps it happen to be more entertaining than gruelling excavation below the Middle East sun. Here is the fat of Amazon search rendering full assistance.
What are we supposed to do
C’est une pratique de bavardage. Aucun bavardage n’est sans risques.
Oui, we may safely conclude that Ankh resides as an engaging logo performing plug and play device for the psychoanalytic knowledge defined in best famous quotes by Indiana Jones of Psychoanalysis – Jacques Lacan.
Most psychoanalysts explain poetry by means of psychoanalysis; for many years Lacan explained psychoanalysis by means of poetry. ‘The symptom is a metaphor.’ ‘Desire is a metonymy.’
Ok, it’s time to look up the scholarly definitions of me-taphor and me-tonymy on dictionary.com.
noun: metaphor; plural noun: metaphors
a figure of speech in which a word or phrase is applied to an object or action to which it is not literally applicable.
When we speak of gene maps and gene mapping, we use a cartographic metaphor
a thing regarded as representative or symbolic of something else.
The amounts of money being lost by the company were enough to make it a metaphor for an industry that was teetering
Late 15th century: from French métaphore, via Latin from Greek metaphora, from metapherein ‘to transfer’.
noun: metonymy; plural noun: metonymies
the substitution of the name of an attribute or adjunct for that of the thing meant, for example suit for business executive, or the turf for horse racing.
Mid 16th century: via Latin from Greek metōnumia, literally ‘change of name’.
Now that the love is gone
Beginning a narrative from pinpointing symbol as mentioned earlier and other its implicit embellished representations in Ancient Egyptian’s artifacts just to carry out durable materials for the sharp perception of the topological and mathematical concepts in a Lacanian approach. Furthermore, to clarify the reason why psychoanalysis as a talky practice has landed somehow in Western Europe, so far away from lonesome deserts and sandstorms.
Comparable to laser tag, a breathtaking game (should be noted it is played indoors or outdoors) the psychoanalytic method operates through metaphor as the scheduled offset point in a particular symptom to shoot correctly in sequences of metonymies continually. Assuredly, it takes some time, but firmly enough psychoanalyst “lodges” pausing till these two poetic tropes tightly merged in a link. These hard chores repeated until the object petit a exposed through the practice of chit-chat (“Une pratique de Bavardage”).
So, when palaver cut and got straight to the aim number one, yeah, the speaking – last but not least, another symptom love is gone, the pain of a-ni-male being talked away, bye-bye, windup.
What does the fox say?
The psychoanalyst is a rhetor (rhêteur): to continue equivocating I would say that he ‘rhetifies’ (rhêtifie), which implies that he rectifies. The analyst is a rhetor, namely, that ‘rectus’, a Latinword, equivocates with ‘rhêtification’.
Back on track, Ankh may be operated as a basic element for constructing another symbol equally vital for the world’s perception in Ancient Egypt – the Eye of Ra (or Horus).
To discern the system of symbols in Ancient Egyptian past, any portion of wild imagination may help.
Actually, at a closer look, in a direct sense, it is a smart shadow play implied to construct the Eye of Ra’a leaning on the walls. Some particular angle needed depending on the time of day or night also the place of observer matters.
What if some play with black magic practised right now?
Put down to the cauldron the essential parts.
Snake + Disk(s) + Ankh = ?
Limestone walls of former glory had clearly captured this flat beat twice: a smaller ball goes to the noose of Ankh, the bigger one to the bird’s body, well-shaped. The visible result is the same – an obtained image of the eye(s) where advanced representations turn later into the Eye of Horus or Eye of Ra’a ahead.
From Lacanian discourse, these balls redirect to the regal fundamentals of pop-psychoanalysis: Big Other (accordingly the Big ball placed in the body) and Little Other in the tiny hole.
Alright, the big fat question brought on the introduced logical chains of analysis evaluated in this long-read post of unrelenting steel of my b-itchy blade: “Why?”.
The psychoanalysis is in the deep shit.
The crisis of social, economic, political thoughts comes along with the rapid global changes ensued in unwanted complications. Just a brief dive into Search in Google Books for bureaucratic complacency stats.
It transpires that no one gives a flying bug on the psychoanalytic basics referred to ‘metonymy’ or ‘metaphor’ turning page by page in a comfortable position.
One tries to say the truth. One tries to say the truth, but that is not easy because there are great obstacles to saying the truth, even if only because one makes mistakes in the choice of words.
Saying the ‘truth’ … is impossible, ditto. A well-known fact that the truth is out there if one’s looking for the signals and proofs. The truth is written on the walls. Moreover, the knowledge(s) scribed, printed, rewritten everywhere…
The fundamental law of every psychoanalytic 101 lectures: the figure of Sigmund Freud equals a Real Father of Psychoanalysis; he suffered extreme pain of being enough to be assisted to leave cruel world . His relatives witnessed the cultural aftershock and similarly got into troubles.
A risky one prime psychoanalyst could have died from an overdose triggered by the previously unheard-of white substance he originally dedicated his pioneer works written on and on cocaine indisputably.
The drug, though isolated from coca leaves in the year 1859-1860, was hardly known. Those scientists that were acquainted with it generally considered it worthless and at the same time dangerous. Rumors of its benefits were believed to be based on superstitions of wretched Peruvian Indians, accepted by gullible travelers.
Freud praised his experience in a little magazine but then realised his mates die and go insane, mentally deteriorated atmosphere tentacles his genuine intentions to help. Complete fuckup. What a catastrophe for the amateurish explorer to see the opposite results of academic misfortune although he sweetened his eccentric actions in 6 kids. That’s a number to stop the blow ultimately and realise the financial slump is going to collapse conjugal life. More money to support the family needed and the right name of his medical and scientific ground not to be besmirched. But worst is yet to come.
Cocaine makes the trash talk last forever, lustful and depraved sensations combined with the dull situations, and finally, dirty fantasies, the excruciating pain of gazing abrupt visions then ejected bizarre myths about Oedipal complex remastered.
The refuse to concede the defeat plus survival horror pushed a zealous decision to formulate existential eye-patches as the initial plan for efficient succour: Freud raised a pen like a phoenix. The next discovery he treated carefully as a great gentleman, truly matured Victorian age person from Austria. He declaimed once again his invention as the new approach to cure many hopeless patients through private conversations where emotional prompting are allowed and not resolved as something shameful to share. More importantly, no pills prescribed.

As expected, the comment section is full of recreational meme users who would presumably turn a problem instantly to a witticism on any subject matter — Internet-Warriors of anti-censorship have come for action.
So what about
Memes constitute a vital part of daily communication to survive in digitalized routine and will likely to progressively spread the latest trends on the Merriam-Webster dictionary.
But top-rated and cringey word references best inhabited on Urban-Dictionary, the dark side of professional demeanour at fast searching to get the profound meaning at a glance.
Meme-raised generations show up as the confused poets of nowadays.
Shifted to the office-settled jobs, today the working class use the web platforms as weapons of time-destruction, send-a-friend post to win over the depressive thoughts, they graciously struggle with anxiety in umpteen guilty pleasures watching the blue screens. Behind the positive attitude in everyday meme and viral videos, like-button clicker subjects exemplified in the topological structure also in a “poem with bass”, “best internal conflict song”.
