It was Freud who turned Bion’s attention to the “caesura”. Quoting Freud, he wrote: “There is much more continuity between intrauterine life and earliest infancy than the impressive caesura of the act of birth would have us believe”. “The caesura” (Bion, 1989), he is indeed inspired by Freud, but his interdisciplinary tendency leads him to touch upon philosophy, scripture, and exact sciences as well, looking for ways to link these supposedly different and distant worlds. Bion leads us into his realm of associations, exhibiting great freedom and guiding us to seek out our own associations. Caesurae occur throughout life, retaining something from each period, for better and for worse. The psychotic has the worst of it: she speaks in several languages, maintaining a dialogue between different characters, dimensions, and aspects of being. She lacks the archaeological structuring of life’s layers.
