“something eludes my ability to see, even when I see myself in the mirror, as my own double.” – the visual field of the surroundings that are visible to me is always an incomplete field. This means that even if I know that nobody is there and that nobody is looking at me, I can have the feeling of being looked at, as if the mere presence of objects around me can give me this feeling of things somehow looking back at me, things somehow making me reflect about myself in a way in which I otherwise would not reflect, in a way of reminding me of my lack of which I otherwise would have naturally be forgetful. I have the feeling of being looked at, feeling my own lack at the core of human subjectivity. It is Lacanian to be okay to feel this lack without just filling it with fantasies that allow the illusion of my all-seeingness.
