The psychic apparatus expands to occupy space according to the rhythm of each encounter. The psychoanalytic experience is a dialogue with reality, which requires the transference and its upheavals for its very existence. The paradox is that erudition and experience—even in materia psychoanalytica—can be used to fill up the space for feeling and thinking or as a smoke-screen for refusing to acknowledge its existence. Philosophers and psychologists have tended to ignore the fact that there exists a space outside the body; yet everybody must occupy space, as Paul Schilder argued in his pioneering work in the field of psychoanalysis. To discover that there is a space for feeling and thinking is often experienced on the phenomenological level as a void or a bottomless pit. The universe of myths is like a collection of fragments, parts of the global space whose essential feature is to be linked together.
