Example text

The ethological expectation is that such sensation be organized in the mind of a care-giver. In his concept of the concrete original object, Ferrari (2004) makes this the very foundation of the function and activity of thinking which unfolds in the world of representation. It will be clear from what we have said that the symmetrical experience of turmoil recalls the infinite, and has the characteristics of ‘infinite experience’ (Rayner 1981). The symmetrical developments mentioned by Matte Blanco are processes of infinitization of experience which arise in the body and its sensations.

In fact, by keeping herself ‘shut up’ and unconnected with her emotions through the constant employment of her capacity for calculation and abstraction, she disconnected her asymmetrical mental capacity – with its potential for containment – from her symmetrical sentiments. The finite and the limit, or boundary, are the direct opposites of the infinite, as we see in the geometric representation of the point that transforms an infinite line into a half-line, or the two points that transform a line into a segment.
