Example text

Children at play are not thinking what convincing cowboys and Indians they are. Fleetingly, they are cowboys and Indians. We cannot drive a car and simultaneously think of ourselves as drivers, for if we do so we are suddenly de-skilled. If we go to the theatre to see Macbeth we have to believe in the play in order to really experience it. If we stop and remind ourselves we are just watching a play then the experience breaks down. Our self is no longer absorbed in the action. It is no longer real.

They may go off at a tangent. But the crucial factor, which makes this a unique conversation, is that no one is talking about a known, definitive self, a conscious fact. This is a conversation about the unconscious, the part of ourselves, which is, like a distant country, unexplored; the part of ourselves, which is other. The unconscious has no conception of time or place. Its relationship with consciousness is “Won from the void and formless infinite”.

For Bollas the ‘we’ or the ’I’ is too near to experience to become its own signifier, whereas the ‘me’ is close to the experience of self but cannot speak. This is the preverbal self “saturated with residues of vast unconscious experiences”. This ‘me’, is an internal object that is sensible and can be felt even though it has no voice.
