Talk to me, Siggy, baby…

“…so by taking flight into the ego, love escapes extinction.” -Sigmund Freud

Oh how I love Freud (sometimes…)

Above is a quote from my newest paper in progress, which addresses how the melancholic society advances into mania, which causes more melancholia, and around and around we go…

The “love” he speaks of is not necessarily a person, it can be applied to the Earth, its people, ecology, ideals, or events. Melancholia is not healthy, and this place where “love” goes is an empty hole, where grief is untouchable, and where the passage of time further excuses more damage.
