“Desire is tormented by the idea that a ‘lost Thing’ ‘would render us complete’ and that such a person would ‘shore’ our lack. But desire overlooks how this lack is only ‘experienced as lack in the light of the impression’ that something would fill our momentary feeling of emptiness. A fantasy about the Other which elevates the him or her, ‘gives rise to the sense of incompleteness,’ as if gaining access to secret enjoyment attainable through the Other or hidden in the Other would appease our desire.” – ANDRE VANTINO citing from p.152-4 of Calum Neill’s book Without Ground. Lacanian Ethics and the Assumption of Subjectivity
