Excerpt: “The only way that God could satisfy His gambling impulse was to create a universe that was Himself, but in which He would forget everything He knew as God, and that He would divide Himself into both male and female, which made the world a total gamble, as you know. And not only that, but He would put some aspects of Himself that were male into female bodies and some that were female into male bodies - which made the gable even more extreme. And so every relationship became a gamble, every event, every project - and because a gambler loves surprise, God had to build in absolute surprising, unsuspected consequences to every action that would take place so that the very intelligence of God would be stymied by these unknowable, unforeseen consequences of every action and that everyone would therefore always be in a state of suspense.” Recorded on the morning of Saturday, July 15, 2017

Excerpt: “. . . Didier Anzieu, another French psychoanalyst who developed a theory of the ego, his most famous and relevant book in this context is called The Skin Ego, and I think the relevance of this is that the skin becomes the center of consciousness at a certain moment when the child is about to go through weening, but it has not yet made a full differentiation between itself and the mother - there is still the ‘I and the mother are one’ - but the skin surface becomes the place of the conflict, and the place where that conflict, in terms of the old Freudian Oedipus complex, still has its last remaining threads of relevance which is that the father or . . . the paternal function that helps to separate the child from the mother, and this is the place where skin ailments happen, acne and other things; they are the skin ego’s complaint against its forcible separation from the mother.” Recorded on the evening of Saturday, July 15, 2017.
