“The subject doesn’t want to know what it desires or how it enjoys. … The gap within knowledge is the trigger for the subject’s desire and the point at which it enjoys. The unconscious emerges out of the subject’s capacity for knowing its own enjoyment.” – Conscious knowledge is not simply unable to arrive at the knowledge of enjoyment and its traumatic origin; it actively functions as a barrier to this knowledge.
