external reality has to be “sutured” by a subjective element, an artificial supplement that must be added to it in order to generate the effect of reality.. ..This, for Lacan, is the objet petit a: the subjective element constitutive of objective-external reality. – SLAVOJ ZIZEK

[on objet a as what gives the impression that a deeper reality is hidden behind a surface]
