Inside/Outside, nowhere is home

– The Who

It looks like I have to make a slight turn on my journey, foregoing discussion of the theoretical prehistoric creation of the “big Other” for a more metaphysical argument. I came on a document in which Zizek goes into detail about  the mechanics of the relationship between “subject” – who we think we are/what we think we feel – and the “big Other.” The work is very dense and the conclusions counterintuitive, so I’ll just link to it for now and let the reader decide for him/herself. (So I’ll have about as many words in the tags as in this entry.)

What does this all mean for discovering a way out of the present system?

I’m still seeking.
