Sigmund Freud

[SEW299a2]London, June.

[SEW299a3]June 16.—It is interesting that in connection with early experiences, as contrasted with later experiences, all the various reactions to them survive, of course including contradictory ones. Instead of a decision, which would have been the outcome later. Explanation: weakness of the power of synthesis, retention of the characteristic of the primary processes.

[SEW299a4]July 12.—As a substitute for penis-envy, identification with the clitoris: neatest expression of inferiority, source of all inhibitions. At the same time [in Case X] disavowal of the discovery that other women too are without a penis.

[SEW299a5]‘Having’ and ‘being’ in children. Children like expressing an object-relation by an identification: ‘I am the object.’ ‘Having’ is the later of the two; after loss of the object it relapses into ‘being’. Example: the breast. ‘The breast is a part of me, I am the breast.’ Only later: ‘I have it’—that is, ‘I am not it’…

[SEW299a6]July 12.—With neurotics it is as though we were in a prehistoric landscape—for instance, in the Jurassic. The great saurians are still running about; the horsetails grow as high as palms (?).

[SEW299a7]July 20.—The hypothesis of there being inherited vestiges in the id alters, so to say, our views about it.

[SEW299a8]July 20.—The individual perishes from his internal conflicts, the species perishes in its struggle with the external world to which it is no longer adapted.—This deserves to be included in Moses.
