But the crucial fact is that it exists and is independent of, and will survive, all our misunderstandings. This admirable professional position can be developed and sustained when we are at work. We cannot live comfortably, however, without our natural beliefs and sensibilities, which we could call prejudices, unless like Jeremy Bentham we float through life unmoored by intuitive connections, without psychic intimacy, and free of assumptive ethical bearings. CHAPTER FIVE Natural, unnatural, and supernatural beliefs I have taken the term natural from David Hume’s description of those beliefs by which he lived outside his study in contrast to those that resulted from his rigorous philosophical analysis whilst in it.

These culminated, shaped by his clinical experience and dream analysis, in his invention of psychoanalysis. This he firmly regarded as a natural science of the mind, thus bringing together the new science with the legacy of centuries of preoccupation in philosophy and literature with mental life. He was supremely equipped to do this as a gifted neuroscientist and clinician, who was familiar with classical Greek and Latin and, amazingly, the literature of Germany, England, France, Spain, and Italy.

The implication is that these eruptive figures are not “egotised” or “naturalised” but are experienced as supernatural. As I see it Klein’s deep unconscious is the residue of the PS of infantile life. It is not objectless, but they are not natural objects, they are supernatural. They form the basis for beliefs about heaven and hell not normally experienced but hypothesised in religions and art, except by some individuals as visions such as Joan of Arc or William Blake. Melanie Klein unlike Freud posits that object relations exist from the beginning of life.
