Certainty and doubt: Transparency and opacity of the object
Pages 14

A patient dreamt: ‘I was walking down Mrs Jones’s road; I stopped in front of her window, to look at my refl ection in the glass. As I looked at myself refl ected there, I suddenly realised that I could see her inside, looking at me, and she was pointing at me, trying to say something, which I could not understand. I then went down some steps to look through the basement window. Mrs Jones was there, dressed in a sexy dressing gown, and I could see that she was going to make love with her neighbour, Barry. In the dream, I was surprised, since Barry is twenty years younger than she. Later I thought, but in the dream she was also young.’
