Myth.

“The Oedipus complex is certainly a patriarchal myth and, though he never said so, the importance of this fact was doubtless behind Freud’s repudiation of a parallel myth for women – so called Electra complex. Freud always opposed any idea of symmetry in the cultural ‘making’ of men and women. A myth for women would have to bear most dominantly the marks of the Oedipus complex because it is a man’s world into which a woman enters: complementarity or parallelism are out of the question.”

 

Juliet Mitchell, Psychoanalysis and Feminism, 1975.

“How far do we have to go back to get to the beginning of this adventure, this disappeared history? Perhaps to where the future could still be imagined. […] Nothing can came of nothing. Nature does not know extinction. All it knows is transformation. […] New life forms. Forms of life struggling to be born. Eternal return of the nascent estate. […] A language, well a type of language from the very depths of cellular life”.

Silvia Maglioni, Graeme Thompson, In Search of UIQ, 2013.
