an atheist can believe in the void at the centre of things. Psychoanalysis tries to look at the symptom caused by the repression of this void. All religions, even buddhism, repress the fact that there is this void.

Too sure of themselves, too unquestioning about identity and about what people do to each other – this is one definition of the perverse structure in corporate capitalism. – ANDRE VANTINO

ife neurotically defines itself by its opposite, by death – almost as if one were vanishing all the time, as if one were shrinking like Benjamin Button all the time. How hard it can be to spend one day without thinking about death at all.
