Give these ideas an inch and they will take a mile, and then no-one can know what demons will be invoked, in what way consciousness and ordinary behaviour will be undermined. Lacan’s speech attempts to reproduce this state in an explicit and paradoxically conscious way, as it articulates the message that the unconscious is always operating, even when discourse appears at its most formal and well-organised; and that the effects of the unconscious can be seen in slips and inconsistencies, as everyone knows, but also in linguistic tension and desire.
Something happens; that is how we know that the unconscious has been at work. In the same paper in which Levinas describes the impossibility of grasping the future, he makes the following statement about the relationship with the other: The relationship with the other is not an idyllic or harmonious relationship of communion, or a sympathy through which we put ourselves in the other’s place; we recognise the other as resembling us, but exterior to us; the relationship with the other is a relationship with a Mystery.
For this attribute of being in perpetual motion, never solid enough to be fully grasped, is taken by psychoanalysts of various schools of thought to be characteristic of the unconscious, above and beyond any of its other attributes. The Freudian unconscious is not a place, a kind of storeroom for truth; rather, the unconscious is dynamic, it is something that is always active, a source of motivations that make things happen. Unconscious ideas are mobile and disruptive, constantly pushing for expression, only forced into silence by the equally vivacious and oftentimes desperate activities of the mechanisms of defence.
