FREUD, A CONQUISTADOR OF THE USELESS

 

In these times of sound and fury, Freud endures as a tightrope walker of the dream and drive. He endures as the luminous tar of an uncertain future.

 

We could surely never live if night would descend over the stupendous and imaginative clarity of Freud.

 

What would we see?

 

What good would become of the ways of the past?

 

Psychoanalysis is an acquired universal.

And never will we return to a place of mere conscience.

In such time, the child was not yet the father of the adult, nor was all the time eternally present.

 

Freud.

 

Infantile sexuality, bisexuality, and the introduction of a difference between biological sexuality and psychosexuality are capital discoveries with implications in law, morality, religion, education, and art.

It is so important, in fact, that we sometimes lose sight of its role in the banality of contemporary entertainment society.

 

Freud.

 

And no matter how much science, or night and the convulsive times and the obscure skies, and because of that, and because solitude, love, and death never forsake us, the psychoanalytic revolution remains.

And lives. And leaves.

Out of sync with economic man. Because the time of efficient man will one day perish and mad love will be written upon him, love that stirs revolution, before sleep.

 

Freud.

Psychoanalysis is one of the most excellent modalities of love.

 

Love in visitation.

 

And its discoveries, its creation, will they forever be?

 

And its discoveries will not forever be on earth.

 

Just a little in time.
